WOODBRIDGE, Va. – A winning lottery ticket was purchased in Woodbridge, and an area man is now $100,000 richer.

More in a press release from the Virginia Lottery:

“It feels good. I’m excited. I’m ecstatic.”

That’s how David Clark described his feelings as he claimed the $100,000 top prize in the Virginia Lottery’s Cash 5 game.  The Lorton man matched all five numbers in the March 30 Cash 5 night drawing.

He bought the winning ticket at Handy Dandy Market, 13316 Occoquan Road in Woodbridge.

The winning numbers for that drawing were 2-9-19-23-28. Mr. Clark said he selected numbers that had once been suggested to him by his father.

The personal trainer said he plans to invest his winnings.

Cash 5 drawings are held daily at 1:59 p.m. And 11 p.m. The chances of winning the $100,000 top prize are 1 in 278,256.

Clark is the second area man to claim lottery winnings in a week. Last week, a woman from Dumfries also claimed her prize.
