NEW YORK -- An audience member at "The Jay Leno Show" is especially grateful this Thanksgiving. He won a new car.

Air Force Capt. Tung Ngo (TUNG' noh) was in the audience filled with men and women of the U.S. military when Leno called his name during Thursday's special holiday program. It was taped at NBC studios in Burbank, Calif., just hours before airtime.

Ngo won a 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid. He told Leno he was glad to get an upgrade from the 12-year-old car he drives.

The Lincoln, Neb., native is headed next week to a new assignment at Cape Canaveral, Fla.

His name was drawn from a bowl with names of Air Force audience members after that branch edged Army, Navy, Marine and Coast Guard rivals in several competitions during the show.
