Festus Auto Worker Claims Fourth Harley-Davidson® Motorcycle
An employee at the DaimlerChrysler assembly plant in Fenton became the fourth Missouri Lottery player to claim a new 2006 Harley-Davidson®Fat Boy® vivid black motorcycle from the "Harley-Davidson®" Scratchers game. William Edward "Ed" Byerley, 42, of Festus said his wife, Donna, bought only one Scratchers ticket on July 7 while buying gasoline at Convenient Food Mart, 1199 Scenic Drive in Herculaneum, the day before they left for a vacation in Florida.
"I didn’t want to go on vacation," said Byerley, recalling his feelings after they found out they won a motorcycle. "I tried to get her to go, and I was going to stay home."
Byerley said he and Donna, who works at St. Louis University, think they will keep the motorcycle. He said they used to have one "before we had kids." The Byerleys are the parents of two teenagers.
In addition to the motorcycle, the Lottery will pay the withholding taxes on Byerley’s 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.
The "Harley-Davidson" game and the promotion officially started May 27. By buying a $5 "Harley Davidson" Scratchers ticket, Lottery players have a chance to instantly win up to $100,000 in cash or one of 10 2006 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy vivid black motorcycles plus $250 cash and a $250 Genuine Harley-Davidson Merchandise in-store credit.
