Tonight the U.S. Powerball drawing is at a record-high $1.5 billion with a cash grand prize estimated at $930 million. You are extremely, extremely, extremely unlikely to win. But if you did, you know your first stop would be some sort of place where cars are sold. Or Craigslist.
The jackpot is currently at $50 million. Dale Earnhardt Jr. could, in fact, buy many, many stock cars, a boat and probably a pizza with that. (At least one.)
Paul White of Ham Lake, Minnesota is a lucky fellow. On August 7, he became one of three people nationwide to hit the Powerball jackpot, getting his share of $448 million split three ways. What he plans to do with that money should make any Jalopnik reader stand up and cheer.
There were two winners in the record $587.5 million Powerball drawing. One of them was from Missouri.
