"Mustang isn't just a means of getting A to B. It's about enjoying everything in between. The journey, the freedom. Mustang exists because of how it makes you feel when you get behind the wheel. It's an exhilarating experience that puts a... smile on your face," Motorsports host Jarod Deanda said at the event.
