Trucker wins new truck

| 12/17/2003

Vicki Tibbett, a Florida trucker, won a truck giveaway Dec. 10 at the Dancing Eagle Casino in Casa Blanca, NM.

Tibbett was among 60 truckers who qualified for the drawing to win the 2003 International 9900i Sleeper Semi-Truck, valued at $135,000.

“This is worse than having a baby,” Tibbett exclaimed, as she and the runner up, Tom Nizlak, stood huddled together, waiting for the final name to be drawn. All of the qualifiers were hosted by Dancing Eagle Casino at a VIP dinner before the drawing and all qualifiers present won cash prizes.

Tibbett said winning the truck was a dream come true that would allow her to start her own business with her husband.

Located on I-40 at exit 108 in Casa Blanca, NM, Dancing Eagle Casino opened in 2000.
