Owners of the most powerful street-legal Ford in history, the all-new Shelby GT500, have an exclusive opportunity to learn about the features that make this the most advanced Mustang ever for street, track, or drag strip.  With training under the watchful eyes of Ford Performance Racing School’s professional instructors in controlled road course and drag strip environments, owners of 2022 Shelby GT500s will learn plenty about their new vehicle – and about themselves – as they complete this program offered free of charge by Ford and Ford Performance.


Capable of mid-three-second 0-60 mph and sub-11-second quarter-mile times, Shelby GT500 features the best Mustang track times, the best cornering and the largest brakes of any domestic sports coupe thanks to tech transfer from Ford GT and Mustang GT4 racing programs; this includes a segment-first dual-clutch transmission.


Instructors at the Ford Performance Racing School will offer participants a deep dive into the GT500’s industry-leading features in the classroom, followed by a unique chance to experience firsthand the capabilities of this awesome vehicle on the track AND on the strip at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The GT500 Track Attack builds on previous owner programs offered by the school, including the Boss302 Track Attack and GT350 Track Attack. Our instructors can help anyone take their expertise to the next level, whether they are beginners or experienced racers.


Founded in 2006, Ford Performance Racing School is the only school of its type supported by Ford Motor Company and has become one of America’s top training programs for those wanting to sharpen their driving skills while becoming better and safer drivers. The school employs a fleet of modified Mustang GTs, GT350s, Fiesta STs, F-150 Raptors, Edge STs and Explorer STs… all steered by a team of instructors comprised of championship-winning drivers.








GT500 Track Attack takes place in the classroom, on the road course, and on the drag strip at America’s Home for Racing – Charlotte Motor Speedway. 

GT500 Track Attack is conducted by the Ford Performance Racing School using the outstanding facilities of the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina.  Its location in the southeast and its proximity to Charlotte Douglas International Airport make it convenient to many, and its address within what many consider to be America’s “Mecca of Motorsports” makes it appealing to even more.

Program participants will enjoy a variety of driving experiences designed to showcase the outstanding performance capabilities of the exciting Shelby GT500. Charlotte Motor Speedway is uniquely qualified to deliver these experiences.  From the first-class classrooms and infield meeting facilities to the road course and Roval to the zMAX 4-wide drag strip there is no other complex in the country better suited to showcasing the many talents of the GT500… the pinnacle of any pony car ever engineered by Ford Performance.
