DAA Northwest Names Rock and Roll Headliner

REO Speedwagon will headline DAA Northwest's annual Rock and Roll Sale July 17 and 18, the auction announced at its NASCAR Days sale.

That event, held April 10 and 11, featured NASCAR driver Clint Bowyer, along with Rutledge Wood of the television show Top Gear.

Bowyer entertained DAA's guests during a private reception following the auction's afternoon sale.

"Clint and Rutledge are two very funny guys," said Bob McConkey of DAA Northwest. "Having them here with us made NASCAR Days 2013 truly unique and a blast."

DAA hosts its NASCAR Days promotion in conjunction with sister auctions KCI Kansas City and EPI El Paso. Each McConkey Auction Group location sent two dealer winners to the STP 400 at the Kansas MotorSpeedway April 21.

"It's a once-in-a-lifetime trip," said DAA's Leonard Roll, who acts as a guide for the winners at the track. "Our dealers receive HOT Passes, giving them total access to garages, pit boxes, an in-field RV with an observation deck, and more."

REO Speedwagon topped the charts in the 1980s with 22 million albums sold in the U.S. and 40 million around the globe.
