RAYTOWN, Mo. -- One student has a fresh set of wheels Thursday because he had good attendance in school.

Last August the Raytown School District said it would give away a car to a random student who meet certain attendance requirements.

More than 1,000 students were eligible this year.

The district chose J'Dan Peterson-Ward as the winner of the red Ford Focus.

In his words, he said it was "crazy."
