Barrett-Jackson Auction Opens New Earth Expo Center at Mohegan Sun

For the last 47 years, enthusiasts from all over the world have flocked to Barrett-Jackson collector car auctions. Widely regarded as a barometer of the collector car industry, the auctions have evolved over the years into world-class automotive lifestyle events where hundreds of the world’s most sought-after, unique and valuable automobiles cross the block in front of a global audience – in person and on live national and international television.

Barrett-Jackson

Barrett-Jackson produces The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions in Scottsdale, Arizona; Palm Beach, Florida; Mohegan Sun in Connecticut and Las Vegas, Nevada. In addition to the millions watching the events via live worldwide television coverage on Discovery Channel and Velocity, over 500,000 people are in attendance at all four auctions, looking to witness auction action at its best, capture the car of their dreams, learn more about collector cars through “Behind the Hobby” symposiums, experience heart-stopping thrill rides in the latest vehicles from America’s top automakers – or shop in the vast Exhibitor Marketplace.

It all starts in the new Earth Expo Center on Wednesday, June 20th, from 8:00am – 5:00pm.  It’s called Family Value Day Preview Day where Gates, Sponsors & Exhibitors and Car Displays Open. Get an up-close look at all the auction vehicles and explore the sponsor and exhibitor displays.

The goldRush Rally

During the final day of the auction, June 23rd, an auto “Super Saturday” will take place. The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions® has teamed up with Shell and Pennzoil to host goldRush Rally at Mohegan Sun. It will be the rally’s first stop during its 10-year anniversary event and the first time in goldRush’s history the rally has stopped at an auction during their epic drives. Full details and up-to-date information on the rally is available at goldRushRally.com.

Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auctions at Mohegan Sun

Here is a reminder of a previous post to go along with this weekend’s 2nd annual Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction – an absolute fanatical auction of incredible proportions.  Comparing it to the weekend “Cruise Night Classic Car Show” would be like comparing a charity casino event to Las Vegas!

ABOUT Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auctions

For the last 46 years, enthusiasts from all over the world have flocked to Barrett-Jackson collector car auctions. Widely regarded as a barometer of the collector car industry, the auctions have evolved over the years into world-class automotive lifestyle events where thousands of the world’s most sought-after, unique and valuable automobiles cross the block in front of a global audience – in person and on live national and international television.

In addition to the millions watching the events via live worldwide television coverage on Discovery Channel and Velocity, over 500,000 people are in attendance at all four auctions, looking to witness auction action at its best, capture the car of their dreams, learn more about collector cars through “Behind the Hobby” symposiums, mingle with celebrities, experience heart-stopping thrill rides in the latest vehicles from America’s top automakers – or shop in the vast Exhibitor Marketplace.

Fans rush to Mohegan Sun Arena for the auction last year.
