Even though our week long event culminates with over 1,000 cars participating in our indoor and outdoor car show on Friday and Saturday, Ponies In The Smokies was created to be a driving event. The #PITS Driving Experience makes it just that and gives participants several opportunities during the week to get their Mustang’s out and stretch there legs. From the legendary Tail Of The Dragon, to the BGGoodrich Autocross course to the drag strip, there is plenty of action to be had during the week.

Autocross, Driving School & Drifting: Smokies Stadium in Kodak, Tennessee, just off I-40, plays host on Tuesday and Wednesday to our autocross course, our BFGoodrich Driving School and Shotgun Alley(start-stop challenge) as well as drifting demo’s in the evening. The folks over at Gateway Mustang do an amazing job setting up the course, teaching our class and making sure everyone learns how to safely take their Ponies to the limit. The BFGoodrich Driving School is on Tuesday followed by Autocross, Shotgun Alley and Drifting on Wednesday.

Drag Racing: The final driving event of the week comes on Thursday with our Drag Day. A event casual enough for the first timer, but serious enough for the professional weekend warrior. Take your shot at the #PITS List and get bragging rights for being one of the ten fastest cars. But there’s more! Cash prizes are at stake for the fastest car as well as the fastest non-Ford, that’s right, bring them all out! Everyone is welcome!

This year we are excited to announce we have a new location for our drag day! We will be holding the event at Knoxville Dragway! We think this will be a big upgrade with much more room and accommodations to better service this growing event!
