Troy gave away shirts and asked for different things to show him to win it. I got mine when he asked for the first person with 3 past run pins. I had 8. I never did get the first year pin or shirt.

 

Then he asked for the first person to show him a traffic ticket. The guy showed him this one...90 in a 55.
