The NASCAR NEXTEL Cup garage will transform into an auto auction arena on Saturday, Nov. 10 as Atlanta Motor Speedway hosts the second Classic Auto Auction, Swap Meet and Car Corral. The speedway's version of the famous Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction seen on ESPN2 and Speed TV will feature nearly one hundred classic, custom, restored and original automobiles, trucks, hot rods, race cars, dragsters and motorcycles. The auction will also include a swap meet vendor area and a car corral.
"We hosted the first auction this past January and it was a huge success," said AMS vice president of Events Brandon Hutchison. "There were a lot of beautiful cars that many of us dream of owning along with some cars that turned out to be real bargains."
Potts Auction Company is coordinating the auction and there is no cost to obtain a bidder card.
"We have been in the auction business for over fifty years," said Rick Potts, president of Potts Auction Company. "We take care of all our customers. The winning bidders and the consignment owners are treated equally which insures the best deal for both parties."
