David Dopp is the lucky winner of a Maverick Convenience Store contest called “Joe Schmo to Lambo” where the grand prize was a lime green convertible Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster. Unfortunately, Dopp’s luck changed in just six short hours after receiving his prize, when he crashed the 640hp supercar spinning out on black ice.
Dopp now says he plans to sell the $380,000 ride, noting “I have bills more important than a Lamborghini. I’ve got a family to support.” The 34-year old is a father of 6 and a truck driver for Frito-Lay, and doesn’t feel the Lambo fits into his buget with the taxes and $7,000 yearly insurance quote. “That’s why rich people own them. The poor people like me don’t.”
On a joy ride with friends and family, Dopp crashed the car at about 45mph, jumping a curb and going through a fence. The resulting damage “isn’t super bad”, and includes some dents and scratches to the front and rear ends, a punctured oil pan and a few wheel dents. The brand new owner got off with no ticket, and promises to exercise more caution while driving.
In addition to the Murcielago, Dopp also won $5,000 worth of driving lessons from Miller Motorsports Park, which could certainly be put to good use, now.
