Chadron Man Claims Second Truck$ & Buck$ Truck

Billy Broyles

Billy Broyles of Chadron is the second 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.

Broyles purchased his winning Truck$ & Buck$ ticket at Common Cents Food Store at 301 West Main St. in Chadron. He was presented with his new truck at Common Cents on Wednesday, May 29 by Nebraska Lottery officials.

Broyles said he usually sticks to Lotto games like Nebraska Pick 5, Powerball and Mega Millions, but something that day told him to get some Scratch tickets. After winning $45 on another ticket, Broyles decided to roll the dice.

“I bought 10 Truck$ tickets, which I never play,” he said. “It paid off because I won the truck!”

The win came at a great time, Broyles said, as his current car has bad shocks, rear brakes and wheel bearings. The new truck was an exciting prospect, he said.

“I couldn’t sleep,” he said. “I had to work at midnight and I couldn’t close my eyes.”

The 29th edition of the Nebraska Lottery’s popular $2 Truck$ & Buck$ Scratch game features the 2024 Ford F-150 XLT 4x4 SuperCrew truck as its top prize. Players have the opportunity to win one of eight Ford F-150 trucks as well as thousands of cash prizes. The truck prize is valued at $81,500, which includes $976 for costs associated with ownership and state and federal withholding paid by the Nebraska Lottery of $4,075 and $19,560, respectively. The odds of winning the top prize in Truck$ & Buck$ are 1 in 336,000, while the overall odds of winning any prize are 1 in 3.69.
