After yesterday’s mega kick-off event, Mustang Week rolls into high gear in its second day as the action roared into Myrtle Beach Speedway for a day of autocross action and fun runs. The forecast, however, was not promising and rain eventually rolled in.
As such, the crowd was a bit smaller than years past, at least early on, but that didn’t dampen their enthusiasm. Mustangs lapped the oval track for fun runs as usual. Meanwhile, the autocross turned into a tail-wagging, tire spinning funfest, which challenged drivers and entertained the crowds.
Speaking of challenging and entertaining, Ultimate Fun Haver and Formula Drift champ, Vaughn Gittin Jr. was on hand to drift his Mustang RTR demo car around the oval track. Vaughn had no trouble sliding on the wet pavement, but he really had to work its supercharged Coyote to produce a bit of smoke on the wet surface.
The action continues throughout the day and was to be capped off by the SVTPerformance burnout contest, which was sadly cancelled due to the weather. And, tomorrow Mustang Week will continue letting the ponies gallop — in a straight line — as the event brings its Test ’N Tune drag racing even to North Myrtle Beach drag strip for the first time.
We’ll be there, so stay tuned for our continued coverage of Mustang Week 2017.
