RAYMOND, Minn. — JT Engel of New Ulm won a $20,000 motorcycle after buying a $100 raffle ticket recently in Raymond, Minn.

The new Harley has a Milwaukee-8 engine that has four valves per cylinder, totaling eight valves, hence the name.

Engle say’s he purchased a raffle ticket from his brother-in-law via the Third Annual Balaton Veteran Run which was held in Balaton, MN on June 14. The run was started by Scott Thomasson and Jim Skral who were motivated when a good friend and Vietnam Veteran died as a result of cancers directly connected to the herbicide called Agent Orange. Money raised from the run is donated to the Eagle’s Healing Nest in Sauk Centre. The Nest is a non-profit organization committed to meeting the needs of our Veterans, service members and their families who suffer from the invisible wounds of war.

Engle is a member of the Flying Dutchmen Motorcycle Club in New Ulm.
