As a result of being selected as the lucky winner, Kevin had his down payment and monthly payments on his 2017 Kodiak EPS SE reimbursed, and the rest of his loan paid off. Kevin also received Yamaha apparel and accessories as part of the winning prize package, but what happened next was really unexpected. Immediately after surprising Kevin of his prize win at Asselstine Country, he immediately forwarded the reimbursement cheque to Floyd Asselstine, dealer principal, as payment on a brand new Yamaha Raptor 90 ATV!
