Static displays aren’t the only attraction at the Carlisle fairgrounds, with parades featuring the SVO group, Team Shelby, and a procession of Mustang IIs making their way around the grounds. This year’s special guest will be the Duncan Brothers Customs, hosting a press conference near their award-winning “Frankenboss” Mustang. Continuing the tradition from last year, Shelby American is set to unveil another exciting build. Attendees can look forward to meeting Steve Saleen, John Clor, Camilo Pardo, and Robert Kennedy, who will be on hand to greet fans and share their experiences in the Ford world. For those seeking action, the autocross and VMP Performance dyno events will provide thrills throughout the day.
