You might be wondering what we're talking about so we'll sum it up for you.

When you purchase drinks at Big Joe's you receive tickets. You might be wondering what on earth the tickets are for, right? They call ticket numbers and if yours is chosen, you can have a turtle represent you in a turtle race. Yes, we'll repeat that. Your ticket could earn a chance for you to be represented in a race.
