Mustang Rally ends in Sturgis


It was a sight to see Sunday in Sturgis, just weeks ago the streets were filled with motorcycles, Sunday, it was a bigger vehicle.   

Engines revving, tires squealing, and Ford Mustang riders were off to the races on the last day of the 7th Annual Labor Day Weekend Mustang Rally.

A variety of events brought people from all over, but it's the autocross racing that has many people watching the powerful cars zoom by.

Autocross riders try to get the best time without hitting cones, those with the top 16 times won trophies and cash prizes, but event sponsor Jason Childress of Mobil Mod Center says it's not about the money. 

"Everything about these shows that we do especially this one, it's family oriented," said Childress. "You're here as a family everyone here knows everyone, you're trying to be buddies if you don't know someone you're trying to talk to them and find out where they're from and what they do."

Those who made the trek in their Mustangs couldn't agree more with Childress, Darwin Blanford from Iowa says he loves coming every year, especially for the time he gets to spend drag racing.   

"Oh it's really awesome," said Blanford. "You get to open it up and see what your car will do without the flashing lights behind you." 

Blanford says he's owned his Mustang for three years, him and his wife come every year to the Mustang Rally.
