A Federal Way car dealership doled out $420,000 to 12 lucky customers on Friday.

Jet Chevrolet ran a promotion before the Seahawks beat the Giants in December that if the Seattle team shut out the New York team, 12 people would split $420,000 equally. Seahawks blew away the Giants 23-0 at Met Life Stadium in New Jersey.

Co-owners Jim and Dan Johnson cut the $35,000 checks on Friday for the 12 fans.

Luckily, Jet Chevrolet took out an insurance policy on the shutout money giveaway. Instead of the $420,000, the contest cost the dealership about $7,000.
