MCA 50th Birthday Celebration In Las Vegas
31- 03- 2014
Shelby American has announced they plan to celebrate this year’s Vegas Bash at their new world headquarters in Las Vegas. The event, which is scheduled to kick off on Monday April 14th, will take place in the days prior to the Mustang Club of America’s Las Vegas Celebration, which kicks off on Thursday April 17th. Some highlights of this year’s Vegas bash include a Shelby Cruise from Palm Springs to Las Vegas, a Monday night “Cars Under the Stars” get together at Shelby’s new facility, a Poker Run, tours of the company’s new facility, and a Shelby GTS Mustang giveaway.
With the Shelby Vegas Bash leading right into the MCA 50th Birthday Celebration In Las Vegas, we’re expecting this year to be bigger and better than ever,” said Joe Conway, CEO of Shelby American. “This will be the first opportunity to host Shelby members and enthusiasts at our new world headquarters in the heart of Las Vegas. This year’s Vegas Bash and MCA 50th Celebration will be one for the record books.”
Enthusiasts who are already planning to attend the Mustang Club of America’s event can kick off their journey on Sunday April 13th by taking part in the 300-mile Shelby Run out of Palm Springs, ending in Las Vegas on April 14th. The road trip is being hosted by the Pacific Coast Team Shelby Region club. The Monday night “Cars Under the Stars” event will feature live music, a cash bar, good eats, and hundreds of sharp looking Shelby cars.
On Tuesday morning, those attending the event will meet at South Point Hotel for a tour of a revered private auto collection that features rare and important Shelbys, old and new. Later in the day the group will take part in a 150-mile Poker Run through the Valley of Fire. Tuesday night, Shelby will celebrate their new location with an official grand opening of the Shelby Heritage Center. Shelby American will host a dinner for all participants.
On Wednesday, April 16th, Vegas Bash participants will take part in the final day of the Shelby Bash. This will include breakfast, a Shelby American car show, and awards ceremony at the company’s new headquarters.
“Shelby American will be fully participating in all MCA 50th Celebration activities, including my personal favorite, open track time at Las Vegas Motor Speedway,” said Gary Patterson, VP of sales and factory driver for Shelby American. “Like in years past, our factory drivers will be happy to show enthusiasts on the track how to enter turns, hit the apex and give as many pointers as possible. There’s nothing like seeing a fellow gear head’s face light up when they realize how much more confident they are in their own car at high speeds.”
