    Default Mustang Week Track Day - Wednesday, September 6, 2017 - MB Speedway

    On Wednesday, September 6, 2017, we head back to the Myrtle Beach Speedway (www.myrtlebeachspeedway.com) for a day of autocross, Speedway fun runs, and the official burnout contest. The event is open to all Ford-powered Mustangs and SVTs. Myrtle Beach Speedway is located just 2 miles west of the waterway bridge on US 501, towards Conway, S.C. In 2016, the Speedway filled to capacity as 450+ cars and over 5,000 people took part in the fun. Gates open for this amazing day at 9:00am.

    The Gateway Classic Mustang Autocross and the Stifflers Speedway Fun Runs will run simultaneously from 10:00am until 5:00pm. The SVTPerformance Burnout Contest will be held promptly at 6:00pm. We have confirmed that fees to participate in this year’s event will be $25 for car and driver. You can also come to watch all the fun from the stands for $5 per person as well. Be sure to watch the Mustang Week website (www.mustangweek.com) for more important information and details on the Speedway event.

    The Gateway Classic Mustang Autocross course is set up and run by experienced personnel, ensuring safety and fun. Auto crossing gives the driver the opportunity to test their driving skills on a flat, coned course. The autocross will provide a low-speed chance to push your car's handling capability while testing the driver's skill behind the wheel. In 2016, there was a continuous line of cars waiting to give the autocross a try. This year’s all-day schedule allows participants plenty of chances at the course. If you’ve never tried an autocross then you are in for a real treat!

    The Stifflers Speedway Fun Runs are a very unique opportunity. The MB Speedway is a NASCAR sanctioned, -mile, oval track. Fun run participants get the chance to go out onto the track one car at a time and take a few laps at their own pace. Staying inside the cones insures speeds are kept within safe limits. This is an excellent photo and video opportunity and an absolute thrill for the driver. Prior to the event, Speedway and Mustang Week Staff will position cones on the racetrack to provide a safe, but challenging line around the racetrack.

    He’s back! World champion drifter, professional fun-haver, and Mustang madman Vaughn Gittin, Jr. returns to Mustang Week for his fourth year of high-energy, high-performance drifting action with his 2017 Monster Energy Nitto Tire Ford Mustang RTR. Gittin, the founder and president of Mustang RTR, will have a few different RTR vehicles on-site and, as always, is excited to hang out with fellow Mustang enthusiasts. Mustang Week attendees will also have a chance to get selected for a ride-along with Gittin.

    At 6:00pm the annual SVTPerformance Burnout Contest takes over the Speedway! Participants line up one at a time on the racetrack to light them up for the crowd. Some of the best Mustang Week videos found online after the 2016 were taken during the burnout contest
