The First Annual Racecar & Sports Car Auction

AUBURN, IN -- Kruse International, the largest collector car auction company and the king of car auctions, is launching the First Annual Racecar and Sports Car Auction on Jan. 12th and 13th at Cabarrus Arena and Events Center in Concord, N.C.
With the advent of the Car of Tomorrow, NASCAR teams will have the opportunity to reduce the size of their car inventories. Vehicles from Richard Childress Racing, Ganassi Racing, Bill Davis Racing, Ginn Racing (formerly MB2 Motorsports) and additional NASCAR teams are expected along with transporters, parts, engines, equipment and memorabilia. These items will be up for bid in what promises to be the biggest racing auction ever for both the avid racer and racecar collector.
Dean Kruse, President of Kruse International, is proud to have created this new and special event for racers, racing fans and car enthusiasts from the epicenter of stock car racing.
"We think it's a wonderful opportunity for thousands of racers to gain access to the same technology used by their favorite teams," Kruse said. "Also, local racers will be able to sell their cars and equipment at the auction too. If you think it goes fast, it qualifies!"
"We are happy to be working again with Kruse International to help manage our racecar inventory and we are excited to offer this unique opportunity to own a piece of NASCAR history and provide added value for our sponsors," said Andrew Campangone, Vice President of Sales for Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates.
