Tiny racer wins the big prize
For a year, Scott Bloomquist Racing has been collecting raffle tickets. On Saturday, the team spun the cage and pulled out the winning tickets.
One ticket was sold for $20 or six for $100.
The grand prize was a brand new Team Zero Race Cars machine. The chassis comes with a front and rear suspension, rear end, fuel cell body and interior.
The first ticket drawn was for the race car. Denise Littleton is the owner of the winning ticket. The team tried to call them with no answer at first.
“Let me tell you this, if Denise does not claim her prize in 10 days we’re going to roll again. Don’t run her off the road or do anything stupid. Cheers to Denise.”
Denise purchased just a single ticket. She bought it at 2:00pm on Friday, one of the last tickets sold on the deadline day.
The team called the winning ticket holder once again and they were able to get the family on the phone. Denise explained that her 15 year old son would be the one to race the car.
“Let me tell you something buddy. I heard you like racing and you race cars a little bit,” Bloomquist stated on the phone.
The kid already had a late model. However, they recently discovered a bunch of issues with it as they pulled it into their garage following a late season crash.
“You talked your mom into buying one ticket for this race car yesterday. Well, guess what. You ever heard of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate factory? You got the golden ticket today, you are the winner of this race car.”
Brody Littleton will be the driver of the new car. He currently pilots a mini late model.
“I know you’re only 15 but you got a hell of a future ahead of you cause you got a hell of a race car to get started in racing.”
The kid began to cry with joy on the other end of the phone.
“You’re going to make me cry buddy,” Bloomquist’s daughter wiped a tear from Scott’s eye.
“Why don’t you tell your mom and sisters to quit that mall shopping shit and come on down. Bring them all up here and have a look at this beautiful car you just won.”
The family then jumped in the car to come check out their prize at the dirt late model shop in Mooresburg, TN.
Bloomquist also spoke a little on the upcoming 2021 season.
“I can feel my leg and foot again. Just in the last couple of races I can feel a big difference. It’s on. We’re back,” Bloomquist concluded.
