Live coverage from Mecum's Kissimmee car auction

NBC Sports Group's 2015 coverage of the Mecum Collector Car Auctions begins this weekend from the Kissimmee car auction, the largest collector car auction in the world, debuting today on NBCSN. In addition, NBC Sports Live Extra - NBC Sports Group's live streaming product for desktops, mobile device and tablets - will stream all Mecum Auctions Kissimmee coverage this weekend.

This week's Mecum auction from Osceola Heritage Park in Kissimmee, Florida, features more than 3,000 classic and collector vehicles, headlined by 25 cars from The Wellborn Musclecar Museum Collection, widely regarded as one of the finest muscle car collections in the world. Cars expected to be up for auction from the collection include a 1971 Dodge Hemi Charger R/T Sunroof, a 1969 Dodge Hemi Daytona, and an unrestored 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429 Fastback.

NBC and NBCSN will combine to present 25 hours of coverage from Kissimmee, beginning with a live, five-hour block at noon ET on NBCSN, followed by continuing coverage at 10 p.m. ET. Friday's coverage kicks off with another five hours of live coverage at noon on NBCSN, and continues Saturday at 4 p.m. on NBCSN. The action from Kissimmee shifts to NBC Sunday at 2 p.m., and concludes with two final NBCSN telecasts Sunday at 9 p.m., and Monday at 7:30 p.m.

Scott Hoke will host NBC Sports Group's Mecum Auctions coverage on-site in Kissimmee, alongside analysts John Kraman, Stephen Cox and Bill Stephens.
