Chris Ball and Placing Bets

Listen to Chris Ball and Placing Bets talk about how he got into the business and how Placing Bets on poker got him to where he’s at today.


Chris talked about the future of the brick and mortar dealerships and his e-commerce business.

This is not only happing in the automotive industry, but we have also seen Polaris offer direct ordering. I have also heard Ford talk about direct sales and delivering vehicles right to your drive. There are several used car companies that will buy and pick up your vehicle and also deliver you a new to you one. What if one of those companies started doing it with Side X Sides. Would you buy or sell from them? We already buy a lot of our accessories online.

With more manufacturers moving to direct sales, where do you see your local dealer going?

  1. Very smart businessman. It will be interesting to see how the future of brick-and-mortar playout in the years to come. I have a feeling there will be a day when everything will be ordered online and you will only go to the dealer for repairs.
