FEDERAL WAY, Wash. (AP) — The names of a dozen winners have been drawn in a Washington state car dealer's football promotion.

Jet Chevrolet in Federal Way, Wash., sponsored a raffle promising a dozen $35,000 winners if Seattle shut out New York in Sunday's NFL game. That's just what the Seahawks did, beating the Giants 23-0.

The winners' names were drawn Monday afternoon. Those present for the drawing celebrated and the others will be notified.

Dealership co-owner Jim Johnson told The News Tribune he didn't expect the shutout but he's glad it happened.

About 20 people who bought cars during the promotion were given 100 entries. Another 12 walk-ins also were allowed to enter.

Johnson has contacted the insurance company that backed his bet and the dealership expects to give $420,000 to the raffle winners.
