NEW YORK, March 27, 2024 – Nearly sixty years ago, Ford unveiled the original Mustang at the World’s Fair in New York. This April, the next chapter of Mustang begins with an epic Mustang fan event at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Owners and fans in attendance will get a first look at a limited edition 60th Anniversary Appearance Package and try new, exclusive Mustang ownership experiences rolling out over the next year.

They’ll meet Ford Performance racing drivers, get up close and personal with monster Mustangs, including the Mustang Mach-E 1400, and see the entire array of racing Mustangs in one place. Ride-alongs in Mustangs on a drift track and around Charlotte’s famed Roval will give a first-hand taste of not just Mustang performance, but some of the skills they can learn through Mustang’s new ownership experiences.

Owners can also learn about Mustang in the aftermarket through the Pony Personalization Corner, which will include exhibits from RTR and others.

"The popularity of Mustang is rooted in its ability to evoke emotion – whether it's the roar of the engine or the sight of its iconic silhouette, it sparks a visceral connection,” said Joe Bellino, Mustang brand manager, North America. “This year, we’ll start to connect with Mustang customers in exciting new ways.”

Customers, clubs, and dealers are invited to celebrate the spirit of freedom, passion, and innovation at this event. Those interested in attending can click here to register. The event will also be livestreamed starting at 5 p.m. EDT.
