Kirk Shelmerdine Racing Assets to be Sold at Public Auction
Rockingham, NC, August 25: It was announced today that Kirk Shelmerdine will sell his current race team assets at public auction on September 14th.
Shelmerdine is best known for his role as crew chief for Dale Earnhardt from 1984 until 1992. After his successful campaign with Earnhardt and Richard Childress, Kirk decided to retire, and later became a Cup series driver and team owner.
Citing the lack of sponsors and technology currently available to independent teams, Kirk has decided to sell his entire operation at public auction. “I’m extremely proud of what we’ve built and accomplished here over the years, but the time has come for a completely new business model.” He is selling his race shop located at 468 Industrial Drive in Welcome, NC, plus a Featherlite car hauler, 3 Cup COT cars, pit equipment, shop equipment, vehicles, parts and more.
Iron Horse Auction Company, Inc. has been commissioned to conduct the auction. Iron Horse Auction Co. and its predecessor Thomas McInnis and Associates have conducted many of the leading race equipment auctions held in the Southeastern United States since 1980.
Thomas McInnis, COO of Iron Horse Auction Co. states, “We are very honored to be chosen to conduct this unique racing equipment auction, especially given Kirk’s history and the scope of his career. We look forward to working with the Shelmerdine family on this important project.”
The auction will take place Tuesday, September 14th at 11 a.m. on the premises in Welcome, NC.
