MCA Mustang 50th Birthday Celebration
Las Vegas Driving Event Open Track:

The Track: The Outside Road Course at Las Vegas Motor Speedway is a 2.4-mile, 14 turn road course and is
very technical in nature. However, we want everyone who registers to have a fun, safe and educational
experience. Thus, the driving school and in-car instructors services are highly recommended, especially for
drivers with no or limited previous road course experience. You are free to drive and learn at your own pace,
however, we do reserve the right to move you into a group that is “more your speed” with regards to the other
participating drivers and their experience level.

Driver Classification
Classifications will be determined by the Driving Event Staff based upon the information you provide with your
registration (please be honest), and are subject to change at our sole discretion.

General Track Rules – The Spirit of the Event
**This is NOT a racing event**The goal for the on-track driving event during the Mustang 50th Birthday
Celebration at Las Vegas is for all Mustang owners/drivers to be able to enjoy driving their cars in fun, safe and
regulated performance driving event. No previous experience is necessary to enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime
opportunity and classroom sessions and in-car driving instructors are available and highly recommended for
Beginner and Novice level drivers. Aggressive on-track driving behavior and “racing-type” actions will NOT be
tolerated. Drivers not abiding to the “spirit of the event” rules and at the discretion of at least two members of
the event staff, will be asked to forfeit their driving privileges with NO refund. Convertible owners: please see
note below.
**This is NOT a racing event**

CONVERTIBLES: ALL convertibles must have at least a 4-point bolt or weld-in roll bar and be driven on
track with the top up. Style or light bars do NOT qualify as roll bars. Driver/passenger harnesses are highly
recommended. Convertibles without roll bars will only be allowed on track during controlled-speed “Touring
Group” sessions (three per day).

closed-toed shoes. SFI or FIA certified suits and Nomex gloves, shoes and socks are recommended.

Mandatory daily drivers meetings will be held before the first morning run sessions – roll call WILL be taken.
The “Rules of the Event” will be explained. General event guidelines and controls will be discussed. Track
layout, passing zones and passing signals will be explained. We will be taking roll call. Any driver who fails to
attend these meetings will not be allowed to run. Period. Not attending the driver's meeting = not driving on
