Pamela Polenske of Randolph is the second winner of a silver 2020 Ford F-150 XLT 4x4 SuperCrew Flex Fuel truck in the 25th edition of the Nebraska Lottery’s $2 Truck$ & Buck$ Scratch game.

Polenske purchased her winning Truck$ & Buck$ ticket at Cardinal Express at 518 W Broadway in Randolph. When she scratched off her ticket, Polenske matched three “7” symbols in game six and won the truck.

Nebraska Lottery officials presented Polenske with her prize on Thursday, March 5 at Cardinal Express.

She said she’d been trying to win a truck, but when she scratched off the ticket and saw that she had, she couldn’t believe it.

“I did a double take,” Polenske said.
