EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - Car enthusiasts are starting a new tradition by helping East Texas children in need through a motorsports auction and trade show.

The Longview Expo Hall turned into everything an auto lover dreams of today, with plenty of items for sale to start new projects. The auction even included race cars you could bid on.

Organizers say the auction is a great way to get the community together to help others.

"Bid on some items that you might not want to buy new. Get them gently used. We're hoping to do this again next year, make it a yearly thing for all our racers," said Jody Gooch with East Texas Motorsports.

Every dollar raised at the event will go to the Racers Kare for Kids Foundation. The foundation makes sure East Texas families in need have a wonderful Christmas.
