The Southern Racer Auction & Expo – a collaboration between the Southern Super Series, Southern All Star Dirt Racing Series and Norville Auctions – will move to a new location in 2019. The annual show targeted towards automotive enthusiasts will be held January 12, 2019 at the Andalusia Kiwanis Fairgrounds in Andalusia, Alabama.
Previously, the show was hosted at the Pensacola Fairgrounds in Pensacola, Florida. Event organizers believe that the move to Andalusia will provide more space and a centralized location for attendees from the Southeast region.
“We made the decision last year to relocate the auction. We now have a larger facility that is in a little more centralized location,” said Tim Bryant, Promoter of Five Flags Speedway and the Southern Super Series. “Hopefully that will make it a little easier on the people from the Georgia and Alabama areas.”
All types of motorsports parts will be auctioned off during the Southern Racer Auction beginning at 9 a.m. CT. Bryant expects there to be parts available for dirt cars, asphalt cars, and even dragsters.
“The auction itself is going to be a racer’s auction as it’s called,” he explained. “There will be dirt, asphalt and we’ll probably have some drag racing stuff and what have you, but it’s pretty much a racer’s auction.”
In addition to being a great place for racers to buy and sell, this year’s event will also be an attraction for automotive enthusiasts of all kinds.
“We’re actually doing a classic car show in conjunction with the auction. We added in the classic car show just to make it a day for car enthusiast in general.” Bryant stated. “It’s all in the Kiwanis Fairground building; it’s humongous. It will be a good place for people on a cold winter today to take cover indoors and do some automotive stuff.”
Doors for the Southern Racer Auction & Expo will open at 8 a.m. CT and the auction will begin at 9 a.m. CT. The Andalusia Kiwanis Fairgrounds is located on Highway 55 North in Andalusia, Alabama.
