(WMC-TV) - Action News 5 gave away a brand new car Friday night. Mary Clevenger is now the proud new owner of a 2014 gold Toyota Avalon.

There were more than 100 hopefuls who showed up looking to drive away with a beautiful car, but as the reverse drawing got under way our own Ron Childers sent them home one by one until a winner was left standing.

Barbara Smith was among nearly 200 hopefuls looking to win a brand new car. She was elated when she was told she was in the drawing.

But as the wheel spun around with drawing tickets, anticipation filled the room. Each participant hoped Ron Childers would not call their name, but one by one, he did call them.

As the numbers dwindled down to five, it was Mary Clevenger left standing. She just could not wait to put the icing on the cake of an eventful evening.

"[I'm going to go home and watch channel 5," she said.

She says she already owns several Toyota cars and she watches Action News 5 every night.
