Since day one, Ponies In The Smokies presented by National Parts Depot has been built around driving and enjoying our Mustangs. This year, not only do we give you a chance to test your car out on Wednesday during our PITS Driving Experience, but on Thursday you will have a chance to take your Mustang down the 1/8th mile at English Mountain Raceway from 11am to 4pm on Thursday the 21st. Those participating in the car show on Friday can earn five bonus show points for taking their car down the track! This is open to everything from daily drivers to race cars! Cost to participate is $20 dollars for unlimited test and tune runs.
IMPORTANT! HOW TO RECIEVE BONUS CAR SHOW POINTS
You must first acquire your car show registration packet from registration. In that, you will find your National Parts Depot car show placard. Present that when you tech in at the track, they will set your car number the same as your registration number. Once you make a pass down the track, you will receive a time slip. Your time slip’s car number will be the same as your car show number. Place your time slip on your cars judging score card and the judges will verify it, then leave the slip in your car. Its that easy! Five extra points!
English Mountain Raceway is located just of I40 and very easy to find. Its about ten minutes from the Shine Run Stop Bush’s Baked Beans.

Ponies In The Smokies presented by National Parts Depot was founded on the idea of getting these Ponies out and driving them! While there will be some of the nicest show cars in the country on display on Friday and Saturday, we love and always will that guy that takes his Mustang out and enjoys the heck out of it! The Shine Run allows you to do just that! A modified poker run of sorts, the Shine Run takes you all over the area why collecting your poker hand in hopes at winning one of the top prizes which include all kinds of cool stuff from all our vendors as well as the top prize, a set of wheels donated by Modify My Stang.
