“We’re set to make our debut Northeast Auction at Mohegan Sun one of the most exciting automotive experiences on the East Coast this year,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Clientele and enthusiasts from the Northeast and Canada have asked us to host an event in this region, and we found Mohegan Sun to be the perfect venue.”
