Hershey Man Claims Second Truck$ & Buck$ Truck

Mitchell Allen

Mitchell Allen of Hershey is the second winner of a 2023 Ford F-150 XLT 4x4 Crew Cab Flex Fuel truck in the 28th edition of the Nebraska Lottery’s $2 Truck$ & Buck$ Scratch game.

Allen purchased his winning Truck$ & Buck$ ticket at Gary’s Super Foods at 1921 West A St. in North Platte.

Allen’s been a Truck$ & Buck$ player for a few years and joked that a win wasn’t completely unexpected.

“Finally,” he said, laughing. “It’s great, I was pretty excited.”

He played a few Truck$ & Buck$ tickets at Gary’s Super Foods while shopping for groceries but wasn’t having much luck. After taking his groceries out to the car, he decided to grab one more just for good measure. It wound up being the winner.

Allen picked up his truck at Gary’s Super Foods on July 11, which just happened to be his fifth wedding anniversary.

“It’s beautiful,” he said. “I couldn’t ask for anything more.”
