Known as “Where Racing Lives,” the ultimate motorsports destination continues to build on what it does best

Cabarrus County CVB

Another exclusive automotive attraction will join Cabarrus County's impressive lineup of offerings for motorsports enthusiasts. The National Mustang Museum will be located in Concord, North Carolina with a proposed opening in summer 2017.

The interactive museum is set to be located near Highway 29 and Pitts School Road. The founders are working closely with city and county officials on the project which is currently in the planning and permitting stages.

While not affiliated with Ford Motor Company, Mustang Club of America or any other Mustang related business venture, the project is the concept of long-time Mustang enthusiasts Steve Hall, from Atlanta, GA and Ron Bramlett, from Morada, CA. Both are familiar with the area and felt Concord, NC is the perfect location for the Mustang Museum.

The Cabarrus County Convention and Visitors Bureau established a relationship with Hall and Bramlett after working to attract and host the Mustang 50th Birthday Celebration held in Concord in April 2014. Bramlett served as the Executive Director of the event.

"This project is an ideal fit for our community and we're eager to start welcoming Mustang lovers and even more auto enthusiasts from around the world to Cabarrus," said Donna Carpenter, President and CEO of the Cabarrus County CVB.

Known as "Where Racing Lives," Cabarrus County, NC is home to Charlotte Motor Speedway, zMAX Dragway, The Dirt Track and top NASCAR race team shops.

Hall and Bramlett made the first public announcement on Tuesday, May 3 during a monthly meeting of The Carolina Regional Mustang Club in Charlotte. Hall and Bramlett have worked with this regional club in the past, and it is closest in proximity to the museum site.

In addition to Mustang-related driving events and various events at the museum, Hall and Bramlett are also aiming to host a number of yearly Mustang gatherings to benefit the museum which will be announced at a later date.

With the selected location just two miles from Charlotte Motor Speedway, Hall and Bramlett have also started exploring partnership opportunities with track officials. "We know that these yearly gatherings will grow each year and flow over into the Charlotte Motor Speedway when we exceed the amount of Mustangs we can accommodate on the museum property," said Hall.

Other opportunities for Mustang enthusiasts to become museum supporters will be available in the future through supporter packages and business sponsorship packages.
