It’s that time of the year once again when the one-of-a-kind extravaganza called the 2024 Barrett-Jackson Auction takes place in Scottsdale Arizona at Westworld. While the venue is well-known for the auctioning of some of the automotive industry’s most spectacular and collectible cars and much more it is the BJ Cup that means everything to the world of hot rodding.

The BJ Cup was begun by Craig Jackson back in 2013 and has grown in prestige and scope. It’s a three-part competition that is under the watchful eye of two of the country’s leading builders – Bobby Alloway of Alloway’s Hot Rod Shop and Troy Trepanier of Rad Rides By Troy.

The Barrett-Jackson Cup features 50 top-flight cars and trucks that encompass the world of hot rods, customs, classic trucks, sports cars, and much more. These 50 are selected from the numerous entries that come in during the year to the Barrett-Jackson offices and the final 50 are chosen. From here two distinguished awards are presented after the careful criteria are thoroughly thought through by the talents of Alloway and Trepanier. There is the “Ultimate Best In Show” and here is where the talents of Alloway and Trepanier shine. Next is the “People’s Choice Award”, voted on by Barrett-Jackson followers worldwide via social media. Talk about landing a huge number of votes.
