A retiree from Lawson recently found out that a Powerball ticket he put above the visor in his truck is worth $100,000. Dennis Wright, 76, said his wife, Mary Jean, got the winning numbers from Ampride in Excelsior Springs, after seeing a sign that announced a $100,000 ticket was sold there for the Feb. 24 drawing. He checked some tickets he left in his truck and discovered he held the big winner. Wright, who worked at a steel company for 35 years before retiring 11 years ago, said they might buy additional cattle for their farm with the windfall. He said they also might buy a computer with the winnings. Wright used a combination of numbers that he received on a Quick Pick ticket a long time ago. The winning numbers were: 31, 34, 39, 42 and 49. To date, 517 tickets worth $100,000 have been sold in Missouri since Powerball began nine years ago.
