One hundred Missouri Lottery players will receive good news in their mail boxes this week after their names were drawn July 23 in the Green Thunder promotion. Each of the 100 winners, who will be notified this week in a registered letter, will receive a trip for four to Florida next February to watch the DAYTONA 500 Racesï¿½ complete with airfare, accommodations, tickets to auto races and Orlando theme parks and $500 cash.

Players entered the first of the lottery’s two summer promotions from June 14 through July 16 by using $5 worth of eligible Scratchers games as one entry.
The lottery also will pay withholding taxes of 28 percent federal and 4 percent state on the prize packages.
The lottery’s second summer promotion, the "Explor-A-Thon Mega Summer Spectacular," starts today and offers players a chance to win one of 20 1999 Limited Edition Ford Explorers and gift certificates to Sam Goody music stores.
Promotion entry forms will automatically be generated by the lottery terminals with each $5 purchase of Powerball, Missouri Lotto, SHOW ME 5, Pick 4 or Pick 3 for the current drawing between July 26 and Sept. 4.
