Good and Bad news for California Barrett-Jackson fans. The Bad News: looks like Barrett-Jackson is closing its doors on its Orange County auction. The Good News: At least for Northern California; Barrett-Jackson is now holding an auction in the Reno Tahoe area. The Reno-Tahoe Barrett-Jackson is scheduled for August 8-10, 2013. Even Better, Barrett-Jackson has teamed up with Hot August Nights to put on one great show at the Reno-Sparks Convention center.
For Northern California residents, that means checking out some of the world’s greatest cars at one auction is only a few hour drive away! Ticket prices vary per day with an adult ticket for all three days going for $50, Thursday August 8th and Friday August 9th going for $20 and Saturday August 10th going for $22. As we get more information on the cars that will be showing as well as other information NorCalCars.com will keep you posted. Tickets can be purchased online now!
Barrett-Jackson and Hot August Nights
To add to the excitement Barrett-Jackson is teaming up with Hot August nights in Reno Nevada. Hot August Nights will be running the same three days and will be presented by Barrett-Jackson Auctions. All the usual Classic Car show action will be going on at the Reno-Sparks Convention center (same location as the Barrett-Jackson Auction).
A new prize will be awarded at the Hot August nights show the “Barrett-Jackson Cup”. The total prize purse will be $40,000 with $20,000 going to one award, the Ultimate Best of Show. The Ultimate Best of Show will be chosen from the 15 daily best of show winners each of the three days. From these 45 winners one car will go home with $20,000 in the pocket of its owner.
At the end of the car show the top 5 winners will head down Virginia Street to be greeted by the awards presentation and a fireworks display at the Silver Legacy Resort.
Hot August nights and Barrett-Jackson together in Reno-Tahoe, Nevada. Sounds like a show you won’t want to miss. So set your calendar for August 8th through the 10th, 2013.
