Racing Auction, Trade Show and Swap Meet to be Held at Atlanta Motor Speedway
Tuesday, January 9, 2007
Atlanta Motor Speedway will be the site of a racer's auction, trade show and swap meet on Saturday, January 13, 2007. The event, held by Potts Auction Company, will be located in the AMS infield utilizing the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup and Busch Series garages.
"We are excited to play host to this racer's auction," said Brandon Hutchison, vice president of events at AMS. "This event will give oval track racers and drag racers an opportunity to sell off existing inventory of parts, engines and entire race cars. This is the perfect event to begin your race season planning."
Potts Auction Company has registered many types of race cars, dragsters, go karts and classic collector cars for the auction. They will also be auctioning engines, transmissions, wheels, tools and other automotive performance items.
"We can set a reserve on the race cars and parts," said Rick Potts of Potts Auto Auction. "But, we also have a few absolute cars we will be selling. It is real easy to participate for those who have never been a part of an auction."
The swap meet is open to anyone wishing to sell used parts, frames, wheels, tires, engines or any other automotive related items. Just $25 reserves a swap meet space, but spots are limited and are distributed on a first-come first-served first served basis.
The vendor area will include aftermarket racing parts suppliers, racing fuel, tires, oil companies, speedways and drag strips. All vendors will be inside the garage area nearest to the auction. Vendor spaces begin at $100 and will include electrical service and a phone line.
Gates will open at 9 a.m. with the auction starting at 11 a.m. Admission is just $10 for adults and kids five through eleven are $2. Kids under five are free.
