Cross Country Drive
Mustangs Across America Filling Up

As registration for the Mustangs Across America 50th Anniversary Drive is nearing 450 cars driven by enthusiasts from 14 countries and over half of the states, it's being announced that pre-registration will be limited to only 500 cars for the epic cross-country Mustang drive.
Pre-registration will be closed when paid entries reach 500 cars or on March 31st, 2014 – whichever comes first. Limiting the number of pre-registrations keep the group size manageable for local logistics and hotels, as well as more enjoyable for the group as they get further east in the route.
“We never expected this high turnout for 2014, but it seems the Mustang 50th Anniversary spirit is bright and vibrant”, says event organizer Sam Haymart. “This drive is going to be the most momentous and special of all the Mustangs Across America events in the past 20 years.”
The cross-country drive which starts in Corona, California, at the Saleen factory will take seven days along the southern route to attend the Mustang Club of America “Mustang 50th Birthday” Celebration in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Mustangs of all ages are invited to participate in all or part of the drive route. “It's very common for people to come join us for a day, two or three simply to be a part of the festivities”, adds Haymart. “Not everyone can make the entire trip but being a part of it large or small is special”.
The event may be offering small numbers of on-site registrations during the event but there are no guarantees. It is recommended that if you want to take part in this once-in-a-lifetime event that you pre-register before the opportunity passes.
Registration for the drive includes a number of benefits including a packet of special event items such as a printed travel guide with maps and schedule detail, a commemorative coin, dash plaque, embroidered patch, event post cards, and printed name-badges with logo lanyards just to name a few items.
Event participants also enjoy discounted hotel room block rates, planned optional activities during drive days or evenings, and the security of traveling with a large group of fellow Mustangers on the trip.
