NPCC raffle car heads to new home

le mans winner
Wednesday, November 15, 2023

Robert Smith, of Culbertson, receives the keys to the 2023 North Platte Community College raffle car from automotive instructor Bryan Herrick Wednesday morning. Smith won the drawing for the 1972 Pontiac Le Mans Sport in September but was not present for the announcement.

The Le Mans is the 18th raffle vehicle produced by the college’s Transportation Division. It was restored by students in the Automotive Technology and Auto Body Technology programs.

A total of 5,959 tickets were sold this year. Proceeds will go toward scholarships for students in the college’s transportation programs and to help offset the cost of producing the next raffle car project.
