Bob Bartek of Ithaca, Nebraska, has been selected as the grand prize winner of the "LEXION Driven to Win Giveaway" contest offered by CLAAS of America.

The prize, valued at more than $50,000, is the use of a new LEXION combine from CLAAS, which Bartek will receive for the 2014 harvest season.

"I've toured the CLAAS facilities in Omaha before, and I've seen their combines at work during their Adventures in the Field demonstrations. Of course, I entered my name in the contest for use of a LEXION," said Bartek.

"I know CLAAS has produced a long line of quality combines with a high level of craftsmanship, and I'm really looking forward to using one on my operation." Bartek grows corn and soybeans along with his brothers, Richard and Tim Bartek. They started farming with their father, Milo "Mike" Bartek, on the farm their grandfather purchased in the early 1920s.

They currently farm 4,700 acres, a combination of owned and rented ground. Bartek serves on the Saunders County Corn Growers Board of Directors and is a past board member of the Nebraska Soybean Board.

Bartek was notified at his farm by representatives from CLAAS of America and his local CLAAS dealer, Nebraska Harvest Center. "I'm really looking forward to using the LEXION combine." Bartek said. "This is great! We are really very appreciative!"
