RENTON, Wash.–Earlier this month, Ted Yan, a Boeing systems engineer, won our grand prize in the Drive for Innovation: a 2012 Chevrolet Volt.
Ted and his wife, Audrey, who just celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary, arrived this evening at Good Chevrolet outside Seattle to pick up his brand new ride. Yan has had some luck recently. Just after he learned he'd won the Volt, he got an engineering promotion at Boeing, where he works on the 787.

Next Drive for Innovation ride? How about a Corvette?
