Peterson Woman Wins Vets Bike

Peterson, IA (KICD)–A Peterson woman that plays the Iowa lottery, has been selected as the winner of a one-of-a-kind motorcycle custom painted by a well-known Iowa artist in a lottery promotion to support our state’s veterans and their families through the Iowa Veterans Trust Fund.

Tracy Schultz of Peterson was selected from nearly 97,000 entries in the Veterans Victory promotion with nonwinning tickets in the $1 “Ride to Riches” instant-scratch game.

The Iowa Lottery teamed up with artist Ray “Bubba” Sorensen II on the motorcycle project. Sorensen, the artist best known for his annual artwork on the huge “The Freedom Rock” boulder near Greenfield in western Iowa, took about five days to hand paint the motorcycle’s gas tank in early December. He weaved into his patriotic artwork an eagle’s head and the letters “USA” on the top of the tank; the motto, “All gave some, some gave all,” on the tank’s sides; and undulating red and white stripes representing an American flag blowing in the wind as the motorcycle drives down the road.

In keeping with an Iowa theme, the lottery purchased the one-of-a-kind Victory Boardwalk™ motorcycle from Victory® Motorcycles in Spirit Lake. The motorcycle package is valued at an estimated $31,000.

All proceeds from the sale of Ride to Riches tickets benefit the Iowa Veterans Trust Fund.
