WHAT IS BARRETT-JACKSON CEO CRAIG JACKSON LOOKING FORWARD TO?

There are so many things. More cars than we've ever had. Over 1,700 cars selling at no reserve. Great charity cars. Great celebrities with Steven Tyler selling his car here on Friday the 20th. On the 21st, Dale Earnhardt Jr. will be here selling his two cars for charity, including one of his winning race cars. Justin Bieber has consigned his car. He'll be here on Saturday personally selling his car.

People come here and they have no idea of the energy and everything else that we have because it's a lifestyle event, not just the car auction. But it's different than any other auction. It's not slow-moving. we rock through and we create excitement, we create emotion here. There is nothing else like Barrett-Jackson.
