A stop for gas propelled an Aurora man to Missouri Lottery winner status in mid-September. Sydney Scott, 22, won $88,000 on a “Power 8s” Scratchers ticket he bought at Rapid Roberts, 2019 S. Elliott Ave., in Aurora.

 “I was pretty excited,” Scott said, adding that he plans to use the windfall to buy a truck.

The masonry laborer and father-of-one also intends to share the wealth with his family.

“My three-year-old daughter wants a four-wheeler,” he shared. “She’ll probably get that, and my girlfriend needs a new car.

Power 8s,” a $5 game with a top prize of $88,000, officially started on June 30.
