We recently attended the Mustang Club of America's 60th Anniversary Celebration of the Ford Mustang at the Barber Motorsport Park in Birmingham, Alabama. This has been one of several huge Mustang events held at the Motorsport Park over the years honoring the Mustang. This year's was a three-day event hosting over 1500 vehicles to include about 400 cars judged by certifified Mustang Club of America Judges. More than a 1000 Mustangs were displayed throughout the various showfields and many more in the general parking areas.

The Barber Motorsports Park is an huge 880 acre, multi-purpose racingfacility located on the eastern fringes of Birmingham, Alabama. It was built by George Barber and includes the Barber Vintage Motorsport Museum, which has been named “World’s  Largest Motorcycle Museum” by the Guinness World Records.

The track, which opened in 2003, has a 17-turn,  and 2.38 mile track, on which dozens of Mustangs from classics to the new 2024 Mustangs Dark Horses and the 60 years of Mustang models in between took advantage of during 20-minute racing sessions.
