Van Man Gets Lucky in Truck Lotto

It's not exactly the million dollar jackpot, but Larry Johnson of Van says a new Ford super cab will do just fine.

Larry is the second East Texan to win the new Buck and Trucks II scratch game, sponsored by the Texas Lottery Commission. Twelve Texans have won the Ford F-150 since the game started in January.

"I just happened to stop at the convenient store to get a Coke," recalls Johnson. "And a guy leaning over the counter was looking at lottery tickets, and I said, 'Well, what the hell, I'll get me one. I walked outside, scratched it and couldn't believe it."

Three red trucks are still up for grabs.
