Presenting the NCEL 200 Grand Marshal and Honorary Starter

1:17 PM


The winners selected at random in the NCEL 200 Race Package Drawing have come forward. George McCall and Mike Beach will get a VIP experience that will drop them in the middle of Charlotte Motor Speedway to be a part of the action.

George McCall, a retired mechanic from Fayetteville, was selected as the Grand Marshal of the NCEL 200 Camping World Truck Series race. As part of his prize, he will deliver the most famous words in racing: “Drivers, start your engines!”

“This is a once in a lifetime experience,” McCall said. “This will be the first race I’ve ever been to. I can’t even comprehend how big this is. I’m just overwhelmed and so excited.”

Mike Beach, an HVAC mechanic from Morganton, will be the race’s Honorary Starter and will drop the green flag from atop the crow’s nest to get the race underway.

“This sounds like it’s going to be a lot of fun,” Beach said. “I’m going to take my stepmom with me. We’re really excited.”

The VIP experience includes pit passes, a behind-the-scenes tour and a bird’s eye view of the race from a suite high above the speedway. The winners will also receive VISA gift cards, hotel accommodations on the night of the NCEL 200 and a ticket package to the NCEL 200 Camping World Truck Series race, NASCAR Sprint Cup Series All-Star race, NASCAR Nationwide Series History 300 race and the Sprint Cup Series Coca Cola 600 race.

Ten more winners were randomly selected for the NASCAR race ticket package at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Each will receive a pair of tickets to the NCEL 200 Camping World Truck Series race, NASCAR Sprint Cup Series All-Star race, NASCAR Nationwide Series History 300 race and the Sprint Cup Series Coca Cola 600 race. Winners will be posted when all ticket packages have been claimed.

If you’re attending any of the races listed above, make sure to stop by our booth at the Avenue of Flags to buy tickets and win fun lottery merchandise.

We’ll see you on the blacktop!

Today I entered my Cash-5 and Powerball tickets for points, and was told that they were not eligible. I checked and re-checked and re-entered, but they were still not accepted.

@ NEESEE - We think that folks should only play the lottery for fun, knowing that it takes a lot of luck to win. Otherwise, we know that there are many things more important in life than entertainment... and we wish you and everyone, whether they play the lottery or not, the very best!

I am please to see the winners. I pray that they will have a wonder time at the races each time they attend. I wish I can be a winner in one of these games. I am playing them each day. I put my points in each morning from the tickets that I play each day and night. You have to play if you want to be a winner. I would like to thank the North Carolina Lottery for giveing us a second chance to win with the ticket that we buy each day. I feel that it is a way that the lottery gives back to the public. Keep that GOOD Work UP. SMILE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU. Felix MOrton.
