Kofoot adds the club is thrilled over all of the interest the contest generates each year...Kofoot03 

"We can't believe all of the publicity that's happened. We had t.v. stations there last night, you people were down there, and all kinds of activity down by the Dry Dock where the car was sitting and everything turned out well."

As we reported previously, the club will use the proceeds from the contest for various community projects, including updating equipment at Shelby's Playground at Elinor Bedell State Park.
