FINAL TRIPS AWARDED IN SPEEDWAY PROMOTION
Two Missourians’ names were drawn Thursday from among 39,000 entries as the trip winners in the third and final drawing of the Missouri Lottery’s "Speedway Getaway" promotion. Jonna Coons of Hannibal and Terry Elkins of St. Charles can each choose between a trip for two to any national stock car race during the 2002 or 2003 racing season or $5,000 cash. The Lottery will also pay the withholding taxes on either prize they choose.
Jonna Coons, 35, said she will probably take the cash, since she is expecting her second child in September. She said between her and her father, they have previously won trips to Florida and Hawaii through various Missouri Lottery promotions.
"We won a trip to Orlando, and it was wonderful," said Coons, who is an office manager for Wright Furniture in Hannibal.
Terry Elkins’ wife, Donna, said they aren’t sure if they will take the trip or the cash. They are big racing fans, and they have been to two professional stock car races.
Elkins, 48, is a maintenance manager for a plastics manufacturing plant in St. Louis.
In addition to awarding the first two grand prizes, the Lottery also selected 350 players as winners of racing prize packages that feature one of six drivers: Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jeff Burton, Matt Kenseth, Mark Martin, Elliott Sadler and Bill Elliott. The prize packages include an official uniform jacket, a limited-edition photo plaque, an official T-shirt and an official cap. (See complete list of winners at www.molottery.com.)
"Fast Tracks," offers players 12 chances to win up to $100,000 on a single ticket. The Scratchers game offers six different ticket designs featuring each of the race-car drivers.
