Donald Pope of Michigan City was one of four finalists in the “NASCAR Powerball® Playoff” that took place during the NASCAR Cup Series Championship Race on Nov. 5. Although he didn’t win the grand prize of $1 million, Pope still walked away with $10,000.
The “NASCAR Powerball® Playoff” promotion was a partnership between Powerball® and NASCAR in which 16 semi-finalists were drawn from a pool of entrants from 24 participating lotteries. The semi-finalists then went head-to-head in a series of drawings that coincided with the elimination rounds of the NASCAR Playoffs.
As one of the four finalists, Pope won a VIP trip for two to the NASCAR Championship Weekend in Phoenix, Arizona, and the chance to win $1 million.
The VIP trip experience included roundtrip airfare for two to Phoenix, three nights hotel accommodations, two Hospitality Club passes, two passes for VIP experiences at Phoenix Raceway during the NASCAR Championship Weekend including NASCAR Cup Series™ VIP access, NASCAR team hauler tour, pace car rides, Victory Lane access, welcome dinner and all meals, and ground transportation to scheduled events and activities.
From June 1-27, Indiana residents entered by visiting HoosierLottery.com/NASCAR and signing up or confirming their myLOTTERY membership. Once the promotion period ended, 35 names were drawn, with each receiving a $50 Hoosier Lottery Prize Pack and an entry in the multi-state lottery promotion for a chance to be one of 16 semi-finalists.
Powerball® Overall Odds 1 in 25. Promotional odds are dependent upon the number of entries received.
