A female race car driver made the headlines on October 20 in social media after she unexpectedly won a massive jackpot in a Las Vegas casino.
Christy Georges-Barnett, age 63, was elated after seeing she had turned her $25 bet into an incredible fortune worth over $1 million while gambling at Caesars Palace on the Las Vegas strip.
A bystander managed to catch the moment on video, which showed the new slot millionaire's hands on her head as she paced back and forth, before looking at the people around her and shouting, "It's a million dollars!"
She was seen hugging her husband and the video clip ends with a glimpse of the slot machine, confirming the win amount at $1,185,599.85.
Christy Georges-Barnett currently races USRA Dirt Mods and Super Trucks. She's also a 4-time Dirt Track Pro Stock Track champion and a 4-time Open Wheel Dirt Modified Track champion, among many other awards. She has also set many records throughout her career - over 35 championships; she has been named the fastest woman in NASCAR when she hit 208 mph at the Bonneville Salt Flats.
