Nebraska Lottery September Update
TRUCK ROARS TO LIFE FOR GIVEAWAY WINNER
In front of a large
crowd, 15 semifinalists in the Truck$ & Buck$ Second-Chance Giveaway gathered on
August 26 at the Nebraska State Fair in Grand Island to find out who would drive away
with a 2012 Ford F-150 XLT 4x4 SuperCrew Flex Fuel truck and a tailgate grill
After a series of elimination rounds, two finalists remained in the giveaway drawing.
Paul Wathen of Hastings and Wayne Bockman of Grand Island took turns selecting keys from
a covered container. Only one of the six keys in the container would start the Ford
F-150. Wathen and Bockman each made an attempt to start the truck, but the truck remained
silent. After drawing another key, Wathen attempted to start the truck again. With a roar
the F-150 started, surprising both the crowd and the truck’s new owner.
Wathen, the Grand Prize winner, received a 2012 Ford F-150 XLT 4x4 SuperCrew Flex Fuel
truck with a tailgate grill package, and a $100 gift card from the Nebraska Ethanol
Board. The truck prize is valued at $47,000, which includes a cash payment to the winner
for costs associated with ownership and state and federal withholding paid by the
Five second-tier winners received $1,000 cash:
- Matthew Ortega of Grand Island;
- John Baden of Seward;
- Daniel Rasmussen of Omaha;
- Ivan Durham of Hershey; and
- Wayne Bockman of Grand Island.
