ROGERS, Ark. — Clay Wilson of Arkansas just picked up his new pickup at Northwest Arkansas Toyota in his hometown of Rogers.
Wilson won the Toyota All-Star Fan Favorite Angler Sweepstakes in September, in which the Top 14 fan finalists were paired with Bassmaster Elite Series pros who were competing in Toyota All-Star Week and the Evan Williams Bourbon Championship. The fan who was paired with the All-Star winner earned a brand-new 2014 Toyota Tundra valued at $35,000.
Wilson was paired with Hank Cherry, All-Star champ.
“My family and friends and I were all watching the weigh-in online, and when Dave Mercer said 17 pounds, we all went crazy,” Wilson said immediately after his win. “We had been watching the fish flop on the scales, and it was taking time to read the weights. When we heard, we all jumped up and went crazy. It was a whole lot of fun.”
Wilson's truck just came in this week, and he went to Northwest Arkansas Toyota to claim his prize.
By the look on his face, he's pretty excited about getting to drive his new loot off the lot.
