"We mainly stopped at the gas station for a drink and a snack," he said.
Plemmons said he was at the counter when he made the impulse decision to buy a $5 Cash Payout scratch-off ticket.
"I honestly don't even know why I got one," Plemmons said. "I just thought, 'Why not.'"
Plemmons scratched off a $200,000 prize.
"I couldn't believe it when I won," Plemmons said. "This is only the third lottery ticket I've ever bought."
The winner said his prize money will go into savings.
