Auction House Extends Partnership into Fifth Year
MOORESVILLE, N.C. (February 19, 2019) – Fr8Auctions, an Atlanta-based auction house that sells excess freight inventory, will partner for the fifth straight year with Front Row Motorsports (FRM) when it partners with Michael McDowell and the No. 34 Ford Mustang team during this weekend’s “Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500” at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Fr8Auctions partners with freight lines, distribution companies, and consumer product-based businesses to help sell excess, discontinued or damaged inventory outside of traditional distribution channels. Buyers across the Southeast attend bi-weekly auctions to bid on hundreds of pallets of merchandise, which can range from gas grills, to ceiling fans, to cleaning products. Merchandise for each auction can be previewed at Fr8Auctions.com.
“We are thrilled to be back with Front Row Motorsports for the fifth consecutive season and are equally as thrilled to work with Michael McDowell,” said Fr8Auctions founder Marcus Barela. “Michael is coming off a great finish in the Daytona 500 and Atlanta Motor Speedway is right in our backyard, so this makes it a very special race for us.”
“Fr8Auctions has been a partner of Front Row Motorsports for a long time and I’m excited to have the opportunity to represent them onboard my No. 34 Ford Mustang,” McDowell said. “I think the design work on my car looks great and I can’t wait to show it off when we head to Atlanta this weekend.”
The Fr8Auctions Ford will first hit the track on Friday, February 22 for practice and qualifying. The “Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500” airs Sunday, Febraury 24 at 2 p.m. ET on FOX.
