This is the risk you take when taking it to the track

S550 Mustang Goes for a Wild Ride at Irwindale?s Eighth-Mile Track!

I likely will never drag mine.

I am going to the track, but road racing not drag.
My car was built for this, but keeping it away from the limit will
be the trick to taking it home in one piece.
