The Mustang Week Staff would like to extend our most sincere thanks to everyone that made Mustang Week 2008 an overwhelming success! Every year Mustang Week continues to grow and this year was no exception. Numbers increased at several events as much as 25 percent! Of course, none of this would have been possible without the help of the Mustang Week Sponsors and Vendors! We are grateful for the support they continue to give. Without them Mustang Week would not happen.
The 2008 week began with Tuesday's Meet-n-Greet at Planet Hollywood. Just over 300 cars were in attendance as Mustangs and SVTs filled every available parking space! Overflow had to park across the street at Hard Rock Café! Wednesday carried Mustang Week to the Myrtle Beach Speedway. 140 cars took part on the Fun Runs around the half-mile oval and in the autocross in the infield! 1,050 attendees watched all the fun and the night ended with a show-stopping burnout contest! On Thursday, we ventured to Darlington International Dragway for the Mustang Week Dragnight. 138 cars participated and over 1,000 spectators watched all the fun. In addition to the test-n-tune runs, some participants stepped up and took part in the very first Mustang Week Shootout! Some great heads-up racing added to the night's excitement! Friday's Car Show never fails to disappoint, and 2008 was no exception! The "sold out" show field was filled with 550 of the finest show cars to be found! Participants and attendees could also take a good look at all of the Mustang Week Sponsors and Vendors who were out in full-force! And if that wasn't enough, attendance at the Mustang Week Cruise-In on Saturday was larger than ever before. Approximately 1,700 Mustangs and SVTs filled the show field and surrounding lots! Saturday could not have been more exciting... but it was! Steve Saleen was on hand to sign autographs and meet the masses! And to cap things off, Saleen, Inc. unveiled their new Racecraft brand! Nearly 5,000 people came out to the mall to enjoy Friday and Saturday's events! We would also like to say thank you to all the Volunteers that helped park cars and judge. Your efforts and hard work are greatly appreciated!
To say that the 2008 Mustang Week was a success is an understatement! Thank you to everyone who attended and took part. We are already hard at work to make sure the 2009 Mustang Week is even better! We look forward to seeing you all next July!
