Winfield Man Claims Harley-Davidson
Steven Groves, Winfield, claimed a 2006 Harley-Davidson® Fat Boy® vivid black motorcycle on July 3. Groves’ prize is the third of 10 motorcycles to be awarded instantly with the "Harley-Davidson®" Scratchers ticket.
Groves, 48, said he bought his winning ticket at Parkside Mini-Mart, 942 E. Highway 47 in Troy, on July 2. A Harley-Davidson owner already, Groves chose the Scratchers ticket because of the motorcycle prize.
"Of course that’s why I bought it," Groves said. "I never dreamed I’d win."
When Groves uncovered the prize, he was in disbelief. He went back to the store to have the clerk verify that he had won.
"I just went ballistic," Groves said.
The Harley-Davidson motorcycle is not the first Missouri Lottery prize Groves has won. He won a 2001 Ford F-150 on the July 8, 2000, episode of the "Fun & Fortune" game show.
"This is even better than when I won a truck," Groves said.
In addition to the motorcycle, the Lottery will pay the withholding taxes on Groves’ prize package, which is worth more than $25,000. He will also receive $250 cash and a $250 Genuine Harley-Davidson Merchandise in-store credit.
