Kansas House Fire Victim Gets Some Unexpected Relief

Associated Press - August 30, 2013 7:30 pm

Just when she needed it most, a northwest Kansas woman who lost her home to a fire won the lottery prize of her dreams: a VIP race weekend at Kansas Speedway.

KAYS-AM reports Shelly Anderson’s two-story home near Plainville burned down earlier this week. Anderson and her son escaped through a second-floor window, but her boyfriend suffered multiple fractures getting out another window.

On Friday, Anderson learned she had won a VIP Racing Experience prize package in a Kansas Lottery drawing. It includes lodging, food and two tickets to the ARCA and NASCAR races Oct. 4-6 at the track in Kansas City, Kan.

Anderson and her boyfriend are enthusiastic NASCAR fans.

They’re also getting ample help in Plainville, where residents are putting on a benefit dinner for them Saturday night.

What a poor heading for a story. Evidently whoever wrote it never lose their home to a fire.

I agree. Talking about rubbing your face in it. Im sure a weekend spent with tens of thousands of backwoods redneck idiots watch cars make left hand turns for hours, will ease the sting of losing your house in a fire.
