Mustang Week 2014 Recap
Mustang Week Staff | 09.22.14
The Mustang Week Staff would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the participants and our Sponsors for all they did to help make Mustang Week 2014 a huge success. We realize that without participants and sponsorship there is no way we would be able to continue hosting the largest annual Mustang event in the country. It is always exciting to see participants moving around the different venues. Mustang Week is different from any other event in the country. Mustang Week is not merely a show. If you attend all the scheduled events, you will see that Mustang Week is an “experience” that can be rivaled by no other weekend show. Where else can you combine a beach vacation with all kinds of driving events and shows? Only at Mustang Week!
Tuesday’s Meet-n-Greet drew over 750 Mustangs and SVTs to the Palace Theatre. Each year the Meet-n-Greet continues to grow. The line for the annual Mustang Week t-shirt stayed packed all day! The afternoon rains cut the event short by one hour, but all that participated seemed to have a great time as this event continues to be a crowd favorite.
Wednesday’s BFGoodrich Track Day at Myrtle Beach Speedway was great! Just over 250 cars participated in both the Stifflers Speedway Fun Runs and the Gateway Classic Mustang Autocross. Vaughn Gittin Jr. made his way onto the track several times throughout the afternoon and added to the excitement. The annual SVTPermormance Burnout Contest ended the day and thrilled the crowd in the stands. In all, just over 2,000 people took part as a driver or spectator at the Speedway.
Thursday was full of action as a huge crowed turned out for the 5.0 Mustang and Super Fords Dyno Shootout. Later that day, Mustang Week made the annual trek to the legendary Darlington Dragway for the Mickey Thompson Darlington Drag Night. Just over 250 cars took part in the drag racing action and over 2,000 people attended. It goes without saying that the Darlington Dragway staff deserves a great deal of thanks for all of their efforts throughout the day. They went above and beyond several times to make sure participants could get the most out of their experience!
Friday’s annual Car Show continues to be one of the premier Mustang shows on the East Coast. For the 5th year in a row, the show was completely sold out and the show field packed. This was also the participant’s first chance to see all the great Sponsor displays. Just over 11,000 people attended the show that day and the surrounding lots were filled with Mustangs as far as the eye could see.
We finished out Mustang Week 2014 with the annual Cruise-In. This is the event that started it all 13 years ago and with just over 10,000 people in attendance, this year didn’t disappoint. Later in the afternoon the Mustang Week Staff held the Car Show awards and annual Mustang Week raffle. At the close of the day there were still many walking through displays as the week drew to a close.
In 2015, Mustang Week will move into its 14th year. With a little over 11,000 people in attendance and nearly 3,000 mustangs throughout the week, the Staff learned a great deal at this year’s events. We are already beginning to plan for next year and will continue to make changes to further the enjoyment and safety of each day’s event. We hope you will continue to join us at the ultimate Mustang experience. Please keep an eye out for upcoming Mustang Week 2015 information. Again, thank you for all you do in helping us make Mustang Week the year’s most anticipated event.

It’s hard not to get excited by horsepower. The Battle at the Beach Dyno Challenge is taking place again this year at Mustang Week. This competition is all about checking out a variety of combinations from the real world. We see plenty of combos with project cars built by magazines and custom shops, but it’s great to see what real people are doing with their cars.

2013 Mustang Week Recap
Mustang Week Staff | 09.03.13
The Twelfth Annual Mustang Week was again an overwhelming success! The Mustang Week Staff would like to extend our most sincere thanks to everyone that has helped grow Mustang Week into the premier Mustang and SVT-based event of the year. We are constantly blown away as Mustang Week continues to steadily grow. Of course, none of this would have been possible without the help of the Mustang Week sponsors and participants. We are grateful for the support they continue to give. The Staff understands what it takes in this economy for people to attend a week-long event. Simply put, without you Mustang Week simply would not happen.
We kicked the week off with Tuesday’s Meet-n-Greet at the Palace Theatre. Just over 600 cars were in attendance as Mustangs and SVTs filled every available parking space in a very short amount of time at the Palace. Overflow had to park in the grass area surrounding the event and into the adjacent Broadway at the Beach parking lots. The Meet-n-Greet event is always a crowd and Staff favorite. Folks lined up for the entire afternoon to be one of the first to get one of the highly anticipated yearly Mustang Week t-shirts!
In addition to the Meet-n-Greet excitement, BFGoodrich Tires held an Autocross school in the infield at Myrtle Beach Speedway. Skip Barber Racing School Instructor, Terry Earwood, with his staff of highly experienced, professional drivers will taught students a variety of skills to lower lap times.
Wednesday carried Mustang Week back to the Myrtle Beach Speedway for a day of ground-pounding fun. The excitement heated up quickly as the morning began and cars started pouring into the Speedway infield. This year’s redesigned parking configuration allowed us to run the infield Mobile Mod Center Autocross and the Stifflers Speedway Fun Runs simultaneously. 250+ cars took part and just over 1600 attendees watched all the excitement. After the Fun Runs and Autocross ended, the annual SVTPerformance.com Burnout Contest did not disappoint. And, as all of this wasn’t enough, many participants and spectators stuck around to enjoy the Speedway’s Wheels of Destruction Thrill Show.
On Thursday, we ventured to Darlington International Dragway for the annual Mustang Week Dragnight. This event continues to grow in popularity and the numbers show it. 250+ cars participated and nearly 2000 spectators watched all the quarter-mile fun. The night was action packed! For a fourth year in a row, spectators filled the stands on both sides of the racetrack. The Darlington Dragway staff really stepped up their game and had the track ready to run soon after people started to arrive. Staging lanes were open all afternoon and evening and we have never seen them lined up so deep! The weathered held of this year and the lanes stayed open until nearly midnight.
As always, Friday’s Car Show continues to amaze all in attendance. The “sold out” show field was filled to the 500 car maximum with some of the finest Mustangs and SVT’s to be found! Approximately 8,000 participants and attendees could also get a good look at all of the Mustang Week Sponsors and Vendors who were out in full-force. Our vendors and sponsors really revved it up this year. The Mustang Week Staff called on the help of Stangs-R-Us Mustang Club and Ponies In Paradise Mustang Club to quickly and efficiently park the show field. Their help was very valuable! Walking this show field gave spectators and participants a chance to see the best the Mustang community has to offer. This year we sent of the call for participants step up and volunteer as car show judges and a great group answered the call. With their help, judging was completed on schedule. In 2014 we will again be looking for judging volunteers and if you have prior judging experience, it will be your way to become more involved with Mustang Week.
Saturday we closed the week with the annual Mustang Week Cruise-In. The Cruise-In is the largest gathering of Mustangs and SVT’s found on the east coast and the Twelth Anniversary of the event did not disappoint. Over 2500 cars and approximately 10,000 people quickly filled the show field and surrounding lots. Twisted Stallions Mustang Club and Full Throttle Car Club jumped in this year to help us with the parking and that was really appreciated. Several model-specific cruises added to the excitement. The annual Fox Body cruise, the SN95/New Edge cruise all gave participants the chance to roll into the Mustang Week Cruise-In in style. In the afternoon, hundreds gathered around the Mustang Week tent for the Car Show awards, the Mustang Week Raffle, and the Save-A-Fox raffle. Many deserving owners left smiling with a sought-after Mustang Week trophy while others left with an awesome raffle prize.
The Twelfth Annual Mustang Week was again a total success. Thank you to everyone who attended and took part, especially the Mustang Week Sponsors, vendors and participants! We are already hard at work to make sure 2014 is off the charts. The Staff has really enjoyed watching the events grow over the past eleven years and look forward to seeing you all next July for the Thirteenth Annual Mustang Week!
