Barrett-Jackson Cup Returns To The 2nd Annual Hot August Nights Auction With More $100,000 In Prizes

BJCupPRSCOTTSDALE, Ariz., June 25, 2014 — Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions™, is upping the ante when it comes to best in show competitions. Held in downtown Reno, the Barrett-Jackson Cup is back for the 2nd Annual Hot August Nights Auction, July 31-Aug. 2, with a prize purse north of $100,000 and growing.

With the help of generous sponsors like General Motors, Ford, Sherwin Williams, Craftsman, Waterloo, Adam’s Polish and more, the purse has more than doubled since the inaugural event last year. The prize package and trophy top all other similar awards in the industry, with the added bonus of national television coverage. The Ultimate Best in Show trophy is awarded along with $30,000 cash and other huge prizes on the auction block and seen around the country on the National Geographic Channel.*

Barrett-Jackson’s historic partnership with the world’s premiere classic car and nostalgia festival, Hot August Nights, began in 2013 and proved to be a match made in car heaven. Since then, Autoweek named Hot August Nights a top-three destination in the world for automotive enthusiasts. Huge hype around the auction’s sophomore campaign is growing just as fast as the prize purse.

Renowned Judges: Judges Bobby Alloway, Pete Chapouris and Bob Millard will pick a total of 25 cars from the downtown Reno “Show and Shine” car shows. These 25 cars will go to the downtown ballroom where the five top finalists will be advanced to the final ceremony. All five finalist cars will then come to the Barrett-Jackson Auction Arena where the Ultimate Best in Show winner will be awarded the Barrett-Jackson Cup in front of a television broadcast audience of more than 100,000,000 homes during Barrett-Jackson Reno Auction coverage. We cannot think of another automotive design competition that comes close to the Barrett-Jackson Cup’s reach and prizes.

The 2013 winner was a custom 1969 Ford Torino owned by George Poteet of Collierville, Tenn. and built by Troy and Jack Trepanier of Rad Rides by Troy. It was a highlight moment when Jack Trepanier, a keystone in the collector car community, accepted the award on the auction block.  Sadly, Jack passed away in March of this year. Barrett-Jackson is dedicating the 2014 Barrett-Jackson Cup in his honor.

Entrants must be a registered participant of Hot August Nights and the Show-n-Shines. Register your vehicle or get more information by visiting HotAugustNights.net or calling the Hot August Nights Office at (775) 356-1956.
