Winston Salem, NC (PressExposure) September 30, 2009 -- WOOOOOOO!!! Tracy Myers was excited to hear that his childhood hero, Ric Flair, was visiting his home town. So excited, in fact, that Myers has decided to recognize Flair with a Lifetime Achievement Award.
"The Nature Boy is a limo ridin', jet flyin', kiss stealin', wheelin' dealin' son of a gun...and he has provided so many folks in the Triad a lifetime of happiness. That's why I thought it would be appropriate to present Mr. Flair with a Lifetime Achievement Award right here in Winston-Salem," said Myers, owner of Frank Myers Auto Maxx.
The North Carolina Education Lottery recently unveiled a new scratch-off ticket featuring pro wrestler Ric Flair. "The Nature Boy" will be signing autographs promoting the new scratch-off ticket a few miles from Myers' car dealership at the Dixie Classic Fair in Winston-Salem, NC Saturday, October 10, 2009.
The new game featuring "The Nature Boy" was available beginning September 22 at lottery retail locations statewide. "Wooooooo!" is a $5 scratch-off ticket. The game features eight top prizes of $100,000 and over 500,000 prizes between $10 and $200. Players have 16 chances to win on each ticket, which corresponds with Flair's 16 championship belts.
"I simply hope that someone can get the message to Mr. Flair that we only want 10 minutes of his valuable time. I only think it's appropriate that we give something back to the man that has given us so much."
