MARSHFIELD — As part of a sweepstakes hosted by Chevrolet in 2014 across 11 Midwest states, a Marshfield man has won the grand prize award of a brand-new vehicle of his choice. Of the more than 112,000 entries accepted at promotional events and Chevrolet dealerships across the region, local farmer Justin Hamus’ sweepstakes entry was randomly selected as the winner.
Hamus and his fiancee Jaime Lorbeck chose a 2015 Chevrolet Equinox, which they picked up at Wheelers Chevrolet GMC in Marshfield today.
“We went with something we wouldn’t normally buy ourselves,” Lorbeck said. “We’re very excited about it. How often do you win a car?”
Lorbeck’s son Colton convinced Hamus to enter the sweepstakes.
“He wasn’t going to enter the contest, and my son talked him into it.”
