It is time to “pony up” and register for the PONY EXPRESS MCA NATIONAL MUSTANG & ALL FORD SHOW AND MUSTANG 50TH in Lincoln, NE, August 8-10, 2014.
Mustang Judged Entry pre-registration deadline is July 26, 2014. Remember, your $65 Judged Entry fee includes two Friday evening cookout meal tickets and two tickets to the ice cream social, and to the best racing museum in the USA, the Speedway Motors Smith Collection Museum of Speed. What a value! Touring the Museum of Speed is worth the trip to Lincoln on its own. You will be truly amazed.
Mustang and All Ford Powered Vehicles Display Only registration is only $20 and has no deadline. Only $20? What a value! People have been asking is that all that it costs to register for a National Show. It’s for real, only $20.
Autocross Racing registration is only $35. This is the same member discount rate that the SCCA charges for their own members. They are offering you this special rate if you are registered for the MCA National Show.
So why you ask should I register for the PONY EXPRESS MCA NATIONAL MUSTANG & ALL FORD SHOW AND MUSTANG 50TH? Let me give you some reasons:
This three day event coincides with the 50th year of the Mustang, and the sales introduction of the all new 2015 Mustang.
It will be the first National and by far the largest Ford and Mustang show, ever to be held in Nebraska.
The City of Lincoln is very friendly to and favored by car enthusiast events. Lincoln has hosted many national car events such as the Hot Rod Super Nationals, The Power Tour, The Great American Race, and the SCCA National Championship autocross (solo) races, which has 1,200 participating drivers, making it the largest participant event in the world.
Spectators are FREE! There is no admission charge for spectators at either the car show at the Pinnacle Bank Arena Festival Space or the autocross races at the Lincoln Air Park.
Pony Express Theme: The Pony Express did indeed use ponies, many of them Mustangs. Of course, the Ford Mustang is also “the original Pony Car. The Pony Express Trail passed through most of Nebraska.
So, the event is called the “Pony Express” and we will all “have a root’in - toot’in good time”.
NEW FEATURE! Car Cleaning: There will be a car cleaning station right on the show site with water hydrants and hoses for the free use of any registered vehicle.
NEW FEATURE! Car Hoist for Underside Car Cleaning: T.O. Haas Tire & Auto has offered free after hours use of their car hoists at their 640 West “O” Street location. other needs while you are in Lincoln, they can probably help you during working hours.
Event Information Booklet: At check-in, each registered car will receive one free event information booklet that will guide you through the weekend activities. It will also have some discount coupons for businesses in the area.
Commemorative Event T-Shirts with the show and Mustang 50th logo. The Mustang 50th will be a collectors’ item.
Commemorative Car Cleaning Container: The first 500 cars to register in any class, ($65 or $20) will receive a free Commemorative Car Cleaning Container imprinted with the “PONY EXPRESS” MUSTANG 50th event logo to remind you of the good time that you had at the event for years to come, every time you clean your car.
Cookout Meal & Ice Cream Social Friday Evening: The Friday Evening Pony Express Cookout Meal and Ice Cream Social will be an opportunity for everyone to get to know your fellow participants.
NEW FEATURE! Pony Express Horse Exchange and Mail Delivery: The real Pony Express riders will be riding through (on the grass) at Speedway Motors. They will deliver the mail at that stop, and change to a fresh horse to continue on their way.

Free Time Saturday Evening: There are no scheduled events on Saturday evening to allow you time to try some of the fine shops and restaurants in the area.
NEW FEATURE! P51 Mustang Free Photo Opportunities at the Autocross Race Track Site on Sunday: A World War II P51 Mustang fighter plane will be parked at the autocross race track site at the Lincoln Air Park on Sunday. All registered Mustangs of the show and/or autocross races will be allowed to take turns parking your car in front of the airplane that your Mustang car was named after for a free photo opportunity.
Autocross Racing on the SCCA National Championship Race Track Site on Sunday: The SCCA (Sports Car Club of America) holds their National Championship Autocross (Solo) Races in Lincoln, at the best autocross racing site in the Nation. The NRSCCA (Nebraska Region Sports Car Club of America) http://nrscca.org/ will be conducting autocross races for the Pony Express Mustangs the same site that the SCCA holds their National Championship races.
NEW FEATURE! If you are not registered for the car show, it is still possible to register for the autocross race only, at the normal NRSCCA non-member rate of $45. However, since it only costs $20 to register for the car show as “Display Only”, which also qualifies you the special $35 autocross rate; we recommend that you register for both so that you can enjoy both events.
Special Commemorative Trophies for Judged Entry winners: The trophies for the Judged Entry winners have been custom designed and crafted by the members of the Capitol City Ford & Mustang Club. There will be 300 of these special trophies, so your chances of winning one as a Judged Entry participant are very good.
Commemorative Plaques for Autocross Race winners: There will be special commemorative plaques to be awarded to first, second, and third place winners of each class of the autocross races.
Awards Ceremony: The judged show awards ceremony will be held from 2 - 4 pm on Sunday afternoon.
NEW FEATURE! The awards ceremony will be held in the air conditioned Pinnacle Bank Arena and all of the show winners will get to see a photo of their winning car on the big screen in the Arena when their award is announced – bring your camera!
NEW FEATURE! Dr. Tom Osborne, multiple National Champion football coach, former US Congressman, and co-founder of the TeamMates Mentoring Program, will speak to us about the program, which is the charity for the event. Dr. Tom will also present the special TeamMates award trophy.
There has never been a National Mustang Show before in Nebraska, and there has never been one exactly like this one anywhere….ever! There will never be another Mustang 50th year (most of us won’t be around for the 100th).
