CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. -

Hundreds of teenagers lined up at the Wyatt Johnson Automotive Group in Clarksville to try their luck.

Wyatt Johnson partnered with Clarksville-Montgomery County Schools and Premier Medical to give away gift cards, t-shirts and 15 laptops to local students.

More than 300 people showed up for the grand prize: a brand new car.

It was a reward celebration for Advance Placement (AP) students in Clarksville-Montgomery County Schools.

"It assimilates a bunch of bright, intelligent, motivated kids," said Bill Powers, general manager of Wyatt Johnson. "Not only did they take advanced placement courses, but they passed the exams. And for that, they should be rewarded."

Each of the students drew a key from a bucket and used it to try and open the door of a Mazda 2.

Then. the ten finalists drew an ignition key from the bucket.

Nathan Roy, who just graduated from West Creek High School, drew the right key.

"I was really not expecting to win anything at all," Roy said. "It's interesting because I was the last one to come up for the first round, and I opened the door. Then I was the first one to come up, and the car just starts."

Roy got to choose one of three available cars: a Toyota Yaris, Mazda 2 or a Hyundai Accent.

Roy told Nashville's News 2 he plans to take the rest of the weekend to think about the decision.
