RALEIGH, NC (June 22, 2024) – Twelve lucky winners had a memorable day at the Charlotte Motor Speedway when they got to compete in the Ultimate Dash Challenge Event on Saturday.

The winners entered their Ultimate Dash scratch-offs in a second-chance drawing for the chance to compete in the event. Participants had 90 seconds to race through a warehouse at the speedway collecting as much merchandise as possible.

Mary Voss of High Point, one of the twelve participants in the event, said she just bought a house a couple weeks ago so the Dash came at the perfect time.

“This is a life-changing experience for me,” she said. “I just got my new house and so my strategy was to pick out all things I knew I needed for the house.”

Voss said she felt blessed to be able to take part in the event.

“I feel like my life is a puzzle and everything is just falling into place for me right now,” she said.

One lucky winner, Joseph Tetreault of Wagram in Scotland County, got the chance to spin a big prize wheel after the Dash and won a prize of $170,000.

“I’m still pumped, it’s crazy,” he said after his big spin. “This was awesome.”

Tetreault said he plans to share his winnings with his family.

“I’ve got nine grandkids so I’m going to take care of them,” he said.
