Back in late 2019, The Blue Oval rolled out a pretty cool post-purchase experience for the at-the-time brand new 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 – the GT500 Track Attack, which treated owners to a complimentary high-performance experience at Ford Performance Racing School at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina, both in the classroom and on the track. It was certainly a cool add-on, but given the fact that the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 bowed out of the lineup following the 2022 model year, it just didn’t make sense to keep it around any longer, since customers can’t buy a new one anymore. Thus, as expected, the GT500 Track Attack has officially come to an end.
This is for you #GT5OOTrackAttack family!

“This is for you GT500 Track Attack family!” Ford Performance wrote in a recent post on X. “Going out in style today with a four-wide line lock burnout for the final GT500 Track Attack program, sending our deepest thanks to the thousands of drivers and guests who have joined us since the program began in 2020! Forever Ford Family.”
While it seems like only a matter of time before a new Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is added to the redesigned S650 lineup, when that might happen is unclear at the moment. However, FoMoCo isn’t giving up on its pony car post-purchase experiences, and in fact, recently announced that it’s adding even more of them – a new destination driving event for 2024 Ford Mustang EcoBoost and GT owners, as well as a new Track Attack experience specifically tailored to Dark Horse owners, too.
