Schedule Change – Mustang Week | Wednesday, September 8, 2021

Schedule Change – Mustang Week | Wednesday, September 8, 2021

We, the Mustang Week Staff, regret to inform you that, as of this date, there will be no official drifting demos and open autocross during the 2021 Mustang Week.  Through no fault of our own, we have been unable to procure a venue to use for this type of event.  As most know, we originally held this event at the historic Myrtle Beach Speedway.  As some have learned, the Myrtle Beach Speedway property was sold just before our planned 2020 event.  If 2020 had not been canceled by Covid, Mustang Week would have been the last official event to ever be held at Myrtle Beach Speedway.  It would have been historic and heartbreaking at the same time.  Once we heard the Speedway may be sold, we went into hyperdrive trying to find a suitable location for a driving event.  We had many discussions about properties that fit our need for location, size of the paved property, ease of entry/exit of spectators and participants, and safety.  We found such a location at the old parking area for the abandoned Freestyle Amusement Park, behind the old Waccamaw Pottery Outlets.  We had many conversations, including in-person meetings on-site, about holding our Wednesday event at this location.  Please understand that even though an event of this nature takes place on private property, county permits and oversight must be obtained and followed.  We were set to have an incredible day of autocross and drifting demos.  We were contacted the last week of May and told, by county officials, that the parking area behind the old Freestyle Park was being rezoned and would no longer be available for driving events.  We were then forced to postpone our driving event for 2021 and hold a more traditional gathering on Wednesday during Mustang Week.  We are continuing to look for a venue to hold future autocross and drifting demos and hope to bring those events back in 2022.  Thanks for everyone’s understanding.  We know these events are very special to many, and we wanted everyone to plan accordingly as we roll into September.  All signs point to attendance being the largest it has ever been for Mustang Week’s 20th Anniversary.  See you all in September!

2021 marks the 20th Anniversary of Mustang Week!

As we gear up for the 2021 event, we are excited, because it will be our 20th event in Myrtle Beach, SC. We have some exciting changes for the event.

Monday, we will be hosting our kickoff party at the Hardrock once again. The Tuesday Meet N Greet will be held in the Broadway at the Beach parking lot. Wednesday, we will be hosting an autocross & drift demos in the old Freestyle amusement park off 501. We are excited to see what we can do with so much room. From our years of going to the SEMA show, we are looking into something similar to the Ford Out Front setup. Thursday, we will be returning to Darlington for our Test N Tune drag event.
So many magazines have featured cars that came from Mustang Week and we are looking to celebrate that this year. If you have had your car featured in a magazine or advertisement while being at our event, we will have a special inside display for your car if you enter the show. The car show & Cruise-In will be held once again at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center. If you are looking to stay on-site, please stay at the Sheraton. You can visit our hotel section on our site for all our supporting properties.

2018 Mustang Week: This is Possibly The Best One Yet!

by crockwood

With no disrespect to other events, we’ll say that Mustang Week sets the bar. It’s the original Mustang destination event. More than a weekend drag race, more than a one day car show, and more than a weekend open-track event. It’s all those events and lasts a whole week.

Michael Johnson, the technical editor over at Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords put together a great write-up on the 2018 Mustang Week over on the MM&FF website. Jump over and give the article a read for an awesome summary of our 2018 event.

Registration for the Friday Car Show opens on May 12.

by crockwood

Registration will be opening May 12 for the 2018 Car Show. If you’re interested in showing your car this year at the Car Show (which is held on Friday of Mustang Week) then be sure to register early. Spots in the show typically sell out fast.

Registration is only necessary if you want to enter your car into consideration for judging. If you’re only interested in attending the show as a spectator, there is no need to register. All are welcome to come out and take a look at what this year’s participants bring out.

2017 Mustang Week Re-Cap

by crockwood

The Mustang Week Staff would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for all they’ve done to help us make the 16th Annual Mustang Week an overwhelming success.  We realize that without volunteers, participants, and the 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, interacting with each other and leading industry sponsors.   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!

Mustang Week will continue despite Hurricane Irma

by crockwood

We’ve received a lot of questions about the impact of hurricane Irma on Mustang Week. We want to assure you Mustang Week will still continue through September 10th as planned.

Irma is not estimated to impact Myrtle Beach until next Tuesday, September 12th. All of the events at Mustang Week 2017 will continue as planned.
