This weekend will mark the 15th Annual Bodees Racers Auction and Trade show held on the Missouri State Fairgrounds in Sedalia, Missouri. For two days the Mathewson Exhibition Center will be the hub of motorsports in the Central Missouri area and beyond. With nearly 1800 lots already consigned it will be a jammed pack event. “We really look forward to this event every year,” commented event organizer Jason Bodenhamer. “Judging by our attendance in the past, and phone calls I’ve already received, it looks like others do too.”

The doors will open at 8 AM on Saturday and Sunday, with the auction beginning at 9 AM both days. All untitled rolling stock will sell at approximately 3 PM on Saturday, with no reserve. Among the hot items this year is a 28 foot enclosed transporter. Other consignments include a nice set of 18 degree Late Model cylinder heads. There will be twenty short blocks up for grabs too. A pair of teams will be completely selling out their inventory, one is a Modified team from Iowa, and the other is a Late Model team from Oklahoma. There will also be a considerable consignment from championship team, Shop Quik Racing, who field cars for Late Model and Modified standout John Anderson. New parts will also be auctioned.

There will be a nice mix of new and returning vendors. Among the vendors will be several area race tracks and sanctioning bodies. They include; Randolph County Raceway, Lucas Oil Speedway, Lucas Oil MLRA, Valley Speedway and Lucas Cattle Company ULMA. It will be a great time for competitors to talk with those officials and also register for the upcoming season.

Concessions will be available on site, and admission is only $10. There are a limited number of lots remaining. To consign you must call Jason at 816-230-8322 or 816-522-8343.
