Along with the VIP NASCAR tickets, McGee was allowed to pick one of the drivers to win. He chose Kurt Busch and since Busch won, McGee gets $1 million.

McGee told a Texas media outlet that he wants to pay off his house and maybe start a scholarship program for college students who study agriculture.
