These events are being held at two separate locations: Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Las Vegas, Nevada and the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina. These two locations give practically every Mustang owner nationwide the opportunity to participate.
Before the festivities begin, however, you can take part in what could be the largest cruise in history! The MCA and the Great American Pony Drive has been working together to coordinate a two part Pony Drive. For part one, the Great American Pony Drive is coordinating getting hundreds of Mustang owners from their home areas throughout the United States and guiding them to Norman, Oklahoma, where the first of many Mustang 50th Birthday celebrations will be taking place.
After that party winds down, on Sunday, April 13, the MCA will be kicking off two separate cruises to each of the Mustang 50th Birthday Celebrations. One cruise will be heading to Las Vegas via Amarillo, Albuquerque and Flagstaff, while the other will head to Charlotte via Little Rock, Nashville and Asheville.
Each event begins with Opening Ceremonies on April 17, the Mustang's official 50th birthday, followed by one of the world's largest Mustang car shows, many different parties, a banquet, time with dozens of VIPs, a cruise in Charlotte, the Shelby American Gala in Las Vegas, displays by vendors and manufacturers (including CJ Pony Parts!) and much, much more!
Thousands of Mustangs are expected at each location, including some of the most rare Mustangs on the planet. You won't want to miss it!
Registration for this once-in-a-lifetime event ends at midnight on Saturday, March 15.
There won't be any opportunity after that, and no tickets will be available at the gate.
The Ford Mustang only turns 50 once - an event of this magnitude won't come around again until 2064 - the Mustang's 100th Birthday!
