The inaugural Mustang Pony Drive, hosted by Running Pony Events and the Gwinnett Mustang Association, is expected to bring out some of the finest Mustangs in the metro Atlanta area. The event will take place on Saturday, September 12th, 2015, starting at Coal Mountain Elementary in Cumming. After check-in and map review, about 300 Mustang drivers will head toward Dahlonega on Hwy 9. The 30-mile drive has over 40 twists and curves with speed limits at 25-35 MPH. The drive will stop at the Dahlonega Baptist Church, where participants can stop and grab a bite to eat at one of the many area restaurants or on-site food trucks.
At about 1:30PM, drivers will head to Chestatee Ford on Hwy 400, who will be hosting a cruise-in. The owners and management will select a few Mustangs from various generations and award trophies as well as raffle ticket items. This cruise will take about 2 hours. Sheriff’s departments from 3 counties will be offering traffic control at major intersections.
Proceeds from the event will be benefiting Annandale Village, a Suwanee based non-profit organization dedicated to providing progressive life assistance to adults with intellectual disabilities and traumatic brain injuries.
