Barrett-Jackson on Sept. 26, along with officials from Mohegan Sun, announced the first Barrett-Jackson auction that will be held in the northeast U.S. The new auction is scheduled next year for June 23-25 at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut.

“People have been eager for a Barrett-Jackson auction near major metropolitan markets like New York and Boston,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “A world-class facility like Mohegan Sun is perfectly situated to bring all of the Barrett-Jackson action to the Northeast corridor.”
