Ravenna Woman Claims First Truck$ & Buck$ Truck

Colleen McKeon

Colleen McKeon of Ravenna is the first winner of a 2024 Ford F-150 XLT 4x4 SuperCrew truck in the 29th edition of the Nebraska Lottery’s $2 Truck$ & Buck$ Scratch game.

McKeon purchased her winning Truck$ & Buck$ ticket at Fill-N-Chill #04 at 401 Grand Ave. in Ravenna. She was presented with her new truck at Fill-N-Chill on Monday, May 6 by Nebraska Lottery officials.

It was a quick stop for snacks on her way to see her dad that netted McKeon her big win.

“He loves chocolate stars and the only place I can get them is here,” she said. “So I grabbed two bags of chocolate stars and five Truck$ & Buck$.”

She held off on scratching the tickets for a little bit, finally scratching them off while having coffee out on her back deck.

The shock of winning was so big McKeon said she started having technical difficulties with her phone.

“When I hit the truck I was shaking,” she said. “I have the [Nebraska Lottery] app and I couldn’t even open it to check.”
