Tire dealer Terry Baker, of Foree Tire Distributors in Denver, is driving away with a $70,000 Superformance MKIII car that he won in Yokohama’s Beat the Odds blackjack tournament at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
Scott McClain from S&S Tire in Lexington, Ky., finished second and claimed $5,000 in cash. Third place went to Jeff Weightman of Tire Works Total Car Care in Las Vegas, who collected $1,000 in cash. More than 30 Yokohama tire dealers participated in the Nov. 4 event, which took place in the Yokohama booth.
Baker was overjoyed and completely surprised that he won the car, which is fitted with Yokohama S.drive tires.
“This is a really cool car,” Baker declares. “I can’t wait to drive it around Denver. My wife didn’t believe me when I called her and told her I won. She thought I was kidding.”
McClain said winning $5,000 feels “really great.” Weightman says quite happy as well with his prowess at the card table. “I did much better than last year.”
