Nebraska man claims lottery grand prize at fair

Nebraska LotteryNebraska Lottery: Nebraska man claims lottery grand prize at fair

A Hershey, Nebraska, man drove away with $72,000 in prizes during the Nebraska Lottery's Getaway Giveaway game show Sunday at the Nebraska State Fair.

Twenty-five semi-finalists, selected from more than 41,295 entries, took part in the contest at State Fair Park.

Through a series of elimination rounds, the field of 25 was narrowed until two contestants remained.

In the end, Mike Summers of Hershey won the grand prize, driving home with a 2006 Toyota Tundra 4X4 Double Cab truck, a 2006 Fun Finder X210 travel trailer and a 2006 Yamaha VX110 WaveRunner personal water craft. Summers also received $100 worth of E-10 unleaded courtesy of the Nebraska Ethanol Coalition.

He squared off against Richard Arnold of Sidney.

In the final elimination round, they took turns drawing keys from a blind box and attempting to start the engine of the Tundra. Arnold went first, followed by Summers.

After two rounds of keys, the contest came down to two final keys. Summers's key started the truck, and he won the grand prize.
