A Fort Leonard Wood Soldier is driving a new 2013 Dodge Charger that he won in a contest at Chicken Bones Party Bar & Grill.
Job Ramirez, a 12 year veteran from Washington who is stationed at Fort Leonard Wood, won the free car by a simple roll of the dice in a contest held at the local nightlife sports and party venue.
"I started walking away from the table [after I rolled]," Ramirez said. "I didn't think I won. My friend stopped me and started yelling and grabbing me."
The contest was a dice roll game played with six dice. A single side of the dice was marked the logo of Chicken Bones Party Bar & Grill, the contest sponsor. The car was delivered from co-sponsor Lindsay Chrysler Dodge of St. Robert, Missouri.
"Next thing I heard, the [dice supervisors] were asking everyone to back away from the table."
The odds of a successful roll for the grand prize is a very remote one in 46,656. As for Ramirez, he says he usually has no luck at all.
"I never win anything. I call into radio station contests every day and the number is always busy," Ramirez joked. "That, by far, was one of the best $11 bar tabs I've ever had!"
