Seahawks Shutout Means Payout for Car Dealer

Posted: Updated:

FEDERAL WAY, WA - The co-owner of Jet Chevrolet in Federal Way is contacting the insurance company that backed his bet on a Seahawks shutout.

The dealership sponsored a raffle with a dozen $35,000 winners if Seattle shut out New York in Sunday's game.  He didn't expect the 23-0 victory over the Giants but he's glad it happened.

About 20 people who bought cars during the promotion were given 100 entries, and another 12 walk-ins also were allowed to enter.

The dealership expects to give $420,000 to the raffle winners, thanks to the Seahawks' stingy defense.
