Newton Falls man wins $5,000 in gas

NEWTON FALLS — A village man is among 14 people across the U.S. who won $5,000 in gas through Sunoco’s annual Free Fuel 5000 contest.

Larry Greathouse, a retired truck driver, was presented the gift card Wednesday at the Sunoco station on Milton Boulevard in Newton Falls. Greathouse, a fan of NASCAR, also was given two tickets to a 2017 NASCAR race by Sunoco, the official fuel of the racing league.

With the money, Greathouse and his wife are planning a trip to see their two sons, who live in Texas and in Tennessee, according to a release from Sunoco.
