In front of a large crowd, 10 semifinalists in the Truck$ & Buck$ Second-Chance Giveaway gathered on June 11 at Haymarket Park in Lincoln to find out who would drive away with a 2016 Ford F-150 Flex Fuel truck.

After a series of elimination rounds, two finalists remained in the giveaway drawing. Stacy Cobb of Grand Island and Pamela Rowe of Omaha took turns selecting velvet pouches containing a key fob. Only one of the six fobs belonged to the Ford F-150. After four unsuccessful attempts, Rowe took another turn and selected a non-working fob, leaving Cobb to make the final attempt. With a cheer from the crowd the truck’s horn sounded, confirming that he was the Grand Prize winner.

The Truck$ & Buck$ Second-Chance Giveaway allowed players to submit $10 worth of non-winning $2 Scratch tickets for a chance to win a 2016 Ford F-150 Flex Fuel truck. Two preliminary drawings were held in March and May to select 10 semifinalists who competed in the final Grand Prize contest.

Cobb, the Grand Prize winner, received a 2016 Ford F-150 Flex Fuel truck, and a $100 gift card from the Nebraska Ethanol Board and Nebraska Corn Board. The truck prize includes a cash payment to the winner for costs associated with ownership, and state and federal withholding paid by the Nebraska Lottery.

  • Gregory Dager of Lincoln -$500
  • Kathie Jo Hoes of Grand Island - $500
