The 16th annual event is considered “the Super Bowl for auctioneers,” according to Event Director Scotty Gray, who operates his family-owned Lakeside Auto Auction in Rockwall, Texas. He has been directing the event since 2000 and cherishes the championship for the camaraderie it fosters among auctioneers. The first-place auctioneer will receive $10,000.
