Farmer City Raceway Sidetrack: The Close-But-No-Cigar Ticket to Riches
FARMER CITY, Ill. -- As it has done at every racing event this season, the Farmer City Raceway held a 50/50 raffle to benefit a local charity.
On August 28, the 50/50 proceeds were given to the Blue Ridge High School cheerleading program. I bought a ticket, and for a split second thought a charitable donation would be sent to myself.
The winning number was 806262. As you can see (more or less) from the picture below, my ticket had the number 806263.
As Maxwell Smart would say, "Missed it by that much."
To see results from August 28's races, scroll down the Sports Thread. And if you cannot make it to the Farmer City Raceway on, but would still like to know the results from, September 4, follow the Thread as I post updates throughout the night, as I did on August 28.
