The third place seller receives a $10 gift card, the second place seller receives a $15 gift card and the first place seller receives a $25 gift card. The drawings will take place in July!

Tristan Holmes wins 2017 Drive It Home Raffle
The winner of the 2017 Honda Pilot Elite, donated by Missouri Automobile Dealers Association, was selected at the Grand Prize Giveaway Event at the Zimmer Tailgate party before the last Mizzou home game on November 11.  After three people tried their keys unsuccessfully, this young man step up to take his turn. He only purchased one ticket (#106981) and was thankful to be an area finalist. He never expected to select the winning key and was surprised when the key worked! As we stood on the sidelines before he went on the football field for the announcement, he shared that he was not sure what he was going to do with a brand new vehicle, but he was definitely planning to purchase a lottery ticket on the way home! Congrats to Tristan Holmes, from Piedmont MO (SE Area) who was the winner of the 2017 Honda Pilot Elite!
