— A ton of horsepower will be roaring down Rabbit Ears Pass and into Steamboat Springs for the 28th annual Rocky Mountain Mustang Roundup.

Joe Dietz, who is helping organize the event, said more than 460 Ford Mustang owners have registered for the event, which starts Thursday with a tour of the Routt County countryside.

All day Friday, there will be autocross races at the Meadows Parking Lot, and Saturday, the cars will be on display from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Lincoln Avenue in downtown Steamboat.

“I think Steamboat is a beautiful venue,” Dietz said. “There aren’t many shows that are held downtown.”

New this year, there will be an electric car show from 11 a.m to 2 p.m. Saturday in front of the electric car charging centers on 10th Street near City Hall.

The Yampa Valley Sustainability Council is organizing that event, which will offer people the opportunity to ride in an electric car. There might even be a couple of Tesla electric cars at the show.

Also new this year are the remote-controlled car races from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday at the Tennis Center at Steamboat Springs. The races are intended for children, and children without remote-controlled cars also are encouraged to attend.

“We’ll make sure they have a good time,” Dietz said.

Saturday’s Show ‘N’ Shine is one of the most popular Roundup events, as it takes over Lincoln Avenue.

Cars are judged, and spectators have an opportunity to visit with the owners, who show pride in their American muscle cars.

“We all kind of grew up with Mustangs,” Dietz said. “It’s kind of a family thing.”

Some of the newest and most advanced Mustangs will be display, possibly including a 2016 Mustang Shelby GT350. Dietz said the car has engine technology that will change how engines are rebuilt.

“It’s the upper echelon of performance,” Dietz said.

Dietz also wants people to learn about the classics.

“I always encourage folks to see where the roots of the Mustang are,” Dietz said.
