Barrett-Jackson, Goodguys Announce AZ Events, Lone Star Roundup Changes TX Date
Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auctions, Goodguys Rod & Custom Association, and the City of Scottsdale announced revised dates for two events at WestWorld of Scottsdale this year. Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale Auction will be held March 20-27, while Goodguys Spring Nationals is scheduled for April 16-18.
“We appreciate the efforts made by the City of Scottsdale to help us return to an auction that will look and feel much like our annual January event,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “We’re also grateful to Goodguys for moving their March Spring Nationals at WestWorld to April. Together, we found a solution that works for everyone.”
While continuing efforts to protect the health and safety of customers, sponsors, and fans, a redesigned site layout provides room for physical distancing, and safety precautions recommended by local and state health authorities will also be adhered to. The Barrett-Jackson event will include preview days at the beginning of the week to allow enthusiasts time to view the vehicles safely and in a comfortable, physically distanced environment.
“We are pleased that we could come to a mutually beneficial agreement with everyone involved,” said Goodguys COO Andrew Ebel. “The City of Scottsdale, Barrett-Jackson and enthusiasts all win with this new schedule. We look forward to putting on a fun and safe event in April.”
Separately, the Lone Star Roundup in Austin, Texas has been rescheduled, and will now be held Labor Day weekend, September 3rd and 4th. Featuring live music, a swap meet, vendors, and traditional hot rods and customs from across the country, the Round Up takes place at the Travis County Expo Center on Friday and Saturday. BBQs, open house parties, and cruise nights all across Austin are a part of what the Round Up is known for.
