Ricky Rudd's Going out of Business Sale
Nov 16, 1999, 11:45 PM

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (Nov. 16, 1999) This isn't your typical "Going out of Business" sale. Ricky Rudd is putting one of the most consistently successful racing teams in motorsports history on the auction block beginning Dec. 1, and continuing until every part and piece is gone. That will definitely include Dec. 2 and probably part of Dec. 3 as well.

"There have been teams put their stuff up for auction before but it's pretty rare to have one that has won a lot of races for a long period of time doing that," Rudd said. "I kind of feel like that Crazy Eddie or something like that -- 'Everything must go!'"

Rudd's team has won every year of its existence but the loss of sponsorship for next season, which Rudd found out late in the fiscal year for most corporations, cost the team a chance to compete next season. Rudd and some team members are moving to Robert Yates Racing, the NASCAR Winston Cup Series championship team, beginning next year where Rudd will drive the No. 28 Texaco/Havoline Ford as a teammate to NASCAR Winston Cup Series champion Dale Jarrett.

"We've got a lot of really good stuff here," Rudd said. "An ARCA team or a Busch team or even some of the weekly racers, these are the guys I'm hoping will come take a hard look. They don't get a chance to look at this type of equipment and these kinds of parts too often.

"One of the reasons I wanted to do an auction instead of just trying to sell everything to one team was to give those kinds of teams a chance at some of this stuff. In a lot of ways, this is going to be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for them. There will be some Winston Cup guys there too, I'm sure, but I'm hoping this turns into a good opportunity for the Busch and ARCA and weekly racers."

The auction will begin at Rudd Performance Motorsports at 8 a.m. ET on Wednesday, Dec. 1, and will continue until everything is sold. A preview day is scheduled Nov. 30, from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. ET. The shop is located in Lakeside Park, just off of Exit 36 on I-77 in Mooresville. The address is 292 Rolling Hills Road, which is the main thoroughfare through Lakeside Park.
