“We are building an exciting docket covering nearly 100 years of automotive history, with some of the rarest and most sought-after vehicles,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Of course, what truly makes Barrett-Jackson the ultimate automotive lifestyle event is the wide, week-long range of incredible activities and exhibits for guests of all ages.”
