What better place to get married than at a car show in front of all your car buddies? Well that is exactly what Northeast Tennessee Mustang Club members Rick & Susan are going to do! Saturday after the car show awards, members of NTMC, as well as any cruise in participants that want to stick around, will form a “Mustang Aisle” in the cruise in parking lot. Rick & Susan will both drive their Mustang’s down the aisle and at the end will be joined in marriage! This is going to be just one of the many awesome and memorable events at Ponies In The Smokies! If you haven’t already, you better start making plans to attend!
Although most of you probably already saw on social media(you are following us on all our social media? Aren’t you??) earlier in the week, Ponies In The Smokies is proud to officially announce that we have partnered with the guys at Hot Rods & Happy Hour to provide us with all our music and sound equipment for all four days in the mountains!
If you aren’t familiar with them, check out their Facebook page HERE.
You can also listen to their weekly radio show via podcast HERE.
Looking forward to jamming out to some great tunes in the mountains!
We are proud to announce our list of awards for the 2017 car show! We feel we have all the bases covered to give everyone in every class a fair shake at an award. As with anything, its trial and error and we will review these again for 2018 and are always open to suggestion.
The awards themselves will be very unique, don’t expect to go home with a plaque or plastic cup, these trophies are going to give you something unique and cool to display on your mantle for years to come! We are going to send the winners home with a real cool taste of the mountains! Stay tuned for that announcement as we are putting the finishing touches on the awards now!

Below is a basic map of the Shine Run stops for those not too familiar with the area! As you can see, all the stops give you a great chance to really explore the area! We will have more suggested driving routes coming very soon with more great roads to unleash your pony on while you are here!
Everyone knows that if you are going to have a killer event, you have to have a killer event t-shirt. That’s why Ponies In The Smokies has teamed with ET Motorgear to design and produce our event t-shirt. For those of you not familiar with ET, they do the t-shirts for Rod Run, The Corvette Expo, Shades Of The Past and Cruisin’ The Coast just to name a few! But enough chit chat, lets see that shirt!
Our shirt will be available for purchase along with all your official Ponies In The Smokies gear Wednesday & Thursday during registration hours at the Sevierville Events Center and Friday & Saturday during show hours inside the Sevierville Events Center!
We had originally announced last summer that NASCAR Speedpark would host our Shine Run party on Thursday night. But as time and planning went on, we realized it wasn’t the best arrangement for all involved. So we are proud to announce that we have signed a deal last weekend with Quaker Steak & Lube to host the Shine Run Party on Thursday night!
If you haven’t ever dined at a QS&L, it is an automotive themed restaurant like no other! You might eat under a Mustang on a lift, with a Indy Car hanging above you, or underneath some cool automotive memorabilia, they have it all!
They will be providing us with a 200+ car paved parking lot in an ultra cool location just on the back side of the restaurant. We will have a DJ providing the tunes for the night. Quaker Steak will be setup to serve in the lower lot as well as the restaurant- with discounts and food and drink specials for all participants. They also have a full arcade including multiple pool tables! This is going to be an awesome evening you are not going to want to miss!
Our friends at SVTPerformance.com will also be sponsoring and helping us host all the fun, originally slated to host the kick off party on Wednesday night, when they heard about all the excitement around the new changes, they jumped at the chance to be on board!
Be sure and make plans to be there, March 30th, 2017! 5pm to 9pm!
The PITS Staff would like to take a moment to send out our thoughts and prayers to all of those effected by the recent wildfires in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area. In planning Ponies In The Smokies, we have made many business partners and more importantly friends in the area and our heart goes out to all of them this evening. The area is one of the most beautiful in the country and to see it destroyed by fire is heartbreaking!
The PITS Staff will be actively looking for ways to make donations and or volunteer to help clean up and rebuild the area over the next few days, weeks, and months. Our thoughts and prayers are with all effected in this horrible event.
As of this time, the fires have not effected anything related to the event and things are moving forward as planned and scheduled.
Thank you & God Bless,
The PITS Staff
