“We want to thank the collector car and Las Vegas communities for capping off a great 2018 auction year in Las Vegas,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “The excitement was especially tangible during exhilarating and record-breaking sales like the ’97 Acura Integra Type R that has rocked the collector car community. We had four great collections, celebrity guest appearances and fans provided a wonderful tribute to our friend Burt Reynolds. We are also very humbled by the tremendous support for our Driven Hearts campaign and the incredible generosity of the collector car community that not only helped raise much-needed awareness and donations for the American Heart Association, but also provided many great moments on the auction block.”
