SPOKANE, Wash.-- A Spokane will soon be zipping around town in a brand new sports car.
Eric Stites was the last of three to drive away with the car he won from Washington’s Lottery Muscle Car Scratch game.
Stites discovered he won when his mother called him at work. He forgot when the drawing was taking place, and was surprised when she told him the good news. Stites picked out a 2013 red Mustang GT Convertible. He plans to only take the car out in the summertime.
Stites bought the winning ticket at the Safeway Store at 1616 West Northwest Boulevard in Spokane.
After his win, he went back to buy an unscratched ticket with the Mustang artwork to keep as memorabilia. He occasionally plays Powerball when the Jackpot gets high, but his new Mustang was his biggest so far.
