Evers’ Blitz Earns him Toyota Bonus Bucks Payout

Longtime Toyota owner and Bonus Bucks member Edwin Evers was once a college football defensive back, and the 63 bass catch fest he put on the scales Sunday during the REDCREST Championship Round was an all-out blitz that netted not only a $300,000 first-place prize but also $7,500 in Toyota Bonus Bucks.

The numbers on the paychecks are solidly quantified, but Evers has actually lost count of the number of Toyota Tundras he’s purchased over the years. Comically, he’s pretty certain he’s bought five, but he says it might be six.

Whatever the case, aside from all the Bonus Bucks money he’s won over the years, he’s also grateful for the horsepower, safety, and stopping power his Tundras provide.

“What I love most about a Toyota Tundra is what I call “the go and the stop” – that 381- horsepower engine has a ton of towing power, but a Tundra also has huge oversized brakes to stop 4,000 pounds of boat and motor, plus no tellin’ how much weight in fishing tackle and other equipment I’m carrying,” says Evers.
