Valdosta man wins On Star giveaway

November 4, 2005

Adel - A South Georgia man is sporting around in a brand new car tonight.

Darren Chase won a new Pontiac SV-6 in an On Star promotion at Jerry Kelly in Adel. Thousands of people took part in the contest at different G-M dealerships across the county, but only a hand full won.

By simply pressing the on-star button, Chase became the new owner of a mini-van worth $31,000.

"At first I didn't believe it, I thought it was sort of a sales gimmick," said Chase. "Then the dealers said I really won so I thought it was cool!"

Chase won the vehicle at a convenient time, he and his wife are expecting their first child next month.
