“Almost all of them sell at no reserve,” Jackson said, “that means they sell to the highest bidder.”

Jessica Sylvia, Mohegan Sun’s director of special events said, “we have no shortage of horsepower here this week, if you love cars this is the place to be.”

The show is happening both inside the new convention and around the grounds. Both Ford and Dodge are offering hot laps in some of their high end vehicles; race car drivers take guests for rides in street legends like the Dodge Hellcat and Ford GT.
