Kutztown, PA - Seth Spayd celebrated his 17th birthday on Wednesday by winning the All-Star Slingshot feature. But it was a nine-year-old who stole the crowd's hearts...and almost stole a victory.
Tanner VanDoren, just beginning his second full season of Slingshot competition, took off with the early lead and it wasn't long before defending track champion (and two-time National Slingshot Champion) Dylan Hoch sliced his way from 12th to second. Hoch pulled even with VanDoren but young Tanner held his ground, fending off Hoch's challenge.
Spayd, who started the race in 11th, shot past Hoch to snare the runner-up spot on the eighth revolution. VanDoren held him off, too, for two laps before Spayd muscled by and into the lead at the halfway point of the 20-lap feature.VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS
Spayd went on to win his second Action Track USA feature of the season, with VanDoren scoring an extremely popular runner-up finish over Hoch, Travis Bieber, and Lee Schantzenbach. Last week's winner, Marc Daniels, wound up sixth.
