The event, with a course designed by SCCA, will take place at Darlington Dragway on September 7th, 2023.
Temecula, CA — Mustang Week to announce a “FUN RUN” autocross event as a part of its week-long festivities honoring the ever-popular Pony car.
Mustang Week 2023 will take place September 4th to 9th in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The FUN RUN will be hosted at the legendary Darlington Dragway in Hartsville, South Carolina, on September 7th.
“We’re very excited to be able to bring back autocross and drag racing in one location,” said Lloyd Hunt, Power Automedia’s Chief Revenue Officer. “We would not be able to do this if it wasn’t for the incredible partnership between BFG, Steeda, and the on-hand support from members of the SCCA. Since this is a FUN RUN, we want to make sure every participant has access to an instructor to help them navigate their first time on a track, and we look forward to seeing everyone slay the course.”
Mustang Week has collaborated with SCCA (the Sports Car Club of America) to design and help oversee the autocross event – including managing timing, tech inspection, the course layout, and more. South Carolina Region Members of SCCA will be on site to support the participants with access to instructors.
“Autocross is a grassroots motorsport that anyone can do,” explained Shellie McKee, SCR SCCA Regional Executive. “Mustang Week is a great way for the Sports Car Club of America to reach a new group of racers and, hopefully, increase participation at SCCA events. #funwithcars is the name of the game!”
Mustang Week is pleased to acknowledge the support of BFGoodrich and Steeda in ensuring the success of the FUN RUN. Steeda’s participation includes ride-alongs and product exhibitions, along with a $250 gift card prize that will be provided to the fastest woman driver. BFGoodrich is doubling down by also offering a 50% rebate on a set of four tires to the fastest female driver.
“Autocross is the gateway into competitive road racing. What better way to experience the limits of your Mustang than an autocross event at Mustang Week?” questioned Chris Cervenka, Steeda’s Director of Marketing. “And don’t worry! When you’re ready to take your Mustang to the next level, Steeda is here with all the performance parts you need to knock out the competition!”
“Our tires at BFGoodrich® are designed and built by enthusiasts — people who go to track days on the weekends,” explained Jonathan Baughman, BFGoodrich Tires. “We work to continually improve tire performance because we want the same thing from a tire that you do. More control, more grip, and more smiles behind the wheel. Mustang Week allows us the opportunity to accomplish each of those items by providing you with the space to hone in your car control skills at the autocross.”
A $30 cash entry fee is required to enter Darling Dragway. For additional details on the FUN RUN, please visit the event page: www.MustangWeek.com/2023-Mustang-Week/.
