Camaro Convertible Won by Thirteen-Year-Old Boy



Jacob Krause is likely the coolest 13-year-old in Nebraska. The eighth-grader won a brand new Camaro convertible, which was the grand prize, in the 15th annual United Way of Western Nebraska Rubber Duck Dash.

Krause bought a dozen ducks, a week before the race that saw 20,000 rubber ducks thrown into a local river in a race to a net at the bottom. Jacob's duck just happened to get to the bottom first. Because he is a minor, Jacob's parents had to accept the Camaro for him.

Because he lives in a rural part of Nebraska, Jacob will be able to get a permit next year, when he is 14, that allows him to drive into town to get to his high school.

In the meantime, the Camaro may spend most of the time in the garage. To keep the battery charged Jacob "might" just let his parents drive it. His older brother, Michael may also be lucky enough to act as a chauffeur. Or perhaps work out another sort of deal with Jacob.
I could lease it to him for $300 a month, the eighth-grader joked at a press conference where he took possession of the convertible.

The Camaro as a grand prize, helped draw close to $90,000 in profits for the fundraiser. Jacob is part of the TeamMates program at his school, this program is one of the many that benefits through this United Way fundraiser.

Good catch. The rims looked a little SSish, but you're absolutely right.

Wow enter a rubber duck race for a new Camaro interesting. Crazy that a 13 y.o. wins a new car lol. Good for him, hopefully he doesn't let it go to his head too much.
