ZOOM Motorsports and the Mustang Club of America are proud to bring the Mustang 45th Anniversary Celebration to the Barber Motorsports Park the weekend of April 16 to April 19, 2009.
This event marks the Mustang Club's second visit to the Park, after the Club's 30th Anniversary which was held there in 2006. "Coming back for the Ford Mustang's 45th Birthday was a given," says Steve Prewitt, Executive Director of the 45th Mustang Anniversary Celebration. "The layout and beauty of Barber lends itself perfectly to an event of this magnitude and significance."
Over 2500 Mustangs (from all over the US, Europe, Australia, and the Netherlands) are expected to descend on the Park over the 4 day event. Each model will be celebrated including Mustang, Shelby, Boss, Saleen, Rousch, SVT, Cobra, Steeda, and McLaren, with several examples of the original 1964-1/2 model. Show cars will be displayed around the entire Park with the Mustang Club of America hosting a formal judging competition.
Additional weekend events include a Thursday night "Cruise In" and street party in downtown Homewood, Alabama, that is expected to draw over 700 participants and a Saturday night banquet titled "An Evening with Ford." On-track activities include open track days for Mustang participants and two races provided by Ford Racing Mustang Challenge, which will host rounds three and four of their racing season.
"The Barber Motorsports Park is the perfect venue to celebrate 45 years of one of America's greatest sports cars," says Clark Virden of ZOOM Motorsports, the exclusive promoter and management team for the Barber Motorsports Park. "We're thrilled to be the host for this historic event and with the careful planning of the Mustang Club; we look forward to making this a celebration that all Mustang fans will be proud to call their own."
