Seth Spayd Is Slingshot Kutztown Komet 100 Victor
by Barry Angstadt
A dramatic charge, topped off by a three-wide pass for the lead, propelled Tim Buckwalter to his fifth victory of the season in the USAC All Pro SpeedSTR main on Wednesday, July 26, at the JeffreyHogueRealtor.com Action Track USA on the Kutztown Fairgrounds.
The SpeedSTR winner was not as fortunate in the Hyper Racing 600 Sprint feature, as his torrid duel for the lead with Billy Pauch Jr. ended with Buckwalter pounding the homestretch wall in the waning laps. Pauch Jr. went on to win his second wingless 600 Sprint main of the year at the Berks County oval.
Shillington’s Seth Spayd became a three-time Slingshot winner by notching the triumph in the All Star Slingshots’ Kutztown Komet 100. The race annually pays tribute to the late, great Modified ace Freddy Adam, who was known throughout his career as the “Kutztown Komet.” Freddy’s widow, Mary Adam, presented the large trophy to Spayd along with members of the Reading Fairgrounds Racing Historical Society.
