Barrett-Jackson Cup Competition Top 5 Announced!
The announcement from Barrett-Jackson bringing back the Barrett-Jackson Cup Competition stirred up some buzz toward the end of 2020, and this weekend the Cup Competition will unfold in Scottsdale, Arizona, with a grand prize of $10,000 plus a slew of goods from sponsoring companies.
Barrett-Jackson opened the door last September to 50 entries for the Barrett-Jackson Cup Competition and welcomed any year, make, or model of vehicle. The group of 50 ranged from early Ford hot rods to track-ready late-model Porches. Barrett-Jackson teamed up with Chevrolet, Dodge, and Ford to judge and select a Top 5 out of the 50 entries.
From there, the final winner will be decided by the public through an online voting system found at www.barrettjacksoncup.com. Voting will open Tuesday, March 23rd at 5am and the overall winner will be announced live on the History Channel Saturday, March 27th at noon.
We tuned in to the live streaming this evening where Barrett-Jackson showcased all 50 entries and announced the Top 5 selected rides. As with any competition or award of this caliber, the field was stacked with heavy hitters which included a handful of past Goodguys Top 12 winners. Vehicles like Chris McPhie’s 1969 Camaro that captured the 2020 Street Machine of the Year honors, Dave Gonzales’ 1935 Ford that won the 2020 Street Rod d’Elegance title, Phil & Debbie Becker’s 2019 Street Rod of the Year-winning 1932 Ford Vicky, and Bruce Wanta’s 1936 Packard that picked up the 2017 Street Rod d’Elegance title…as well as many others. And those are some of the top-notch rides that didn’t make the Top 5 cut. You can check out all 50 of the Barrett-Jackson Cup Competition entries in the video below.
