Eagle Man Claims Second Truck$ & Buck$ Truck

2nd (of 5) Truck Winner

Rick Torres of Eagle is the second winner of a 2017 Ford F-150 XLT 4x4 SuperCrew Flex Fuel truck in the 22nd edition of Nebraska Lottery’s $2 Truck$ & Buck$ Scratch game.

Torres recently purchased his winning Truck$ & Buck$ ticket at U-Stop, 3280 Superior Street in Lincoln.

 Nebraska Lottery officials presented Torres with his prize on Friday, February 17, at U-Stop. He told Nebraska Lottery officials that he had stopped at the store while running errands and bought five Truck$ & Buck$ tickets. While he sat at a drive-thru to get lunch from himself and his wife, he scratched the first ticket to reveal he had won the Ford F-150 prize. “You know who is going to throw a fit?” he said. “My dog. She’s going to be sitting right up next to me in the front seat.”
