AKRON -- Kallie Myers overcame a scary crash Saturday to race to victory at the All-American Soap Box Derby.
Myers, a 17-year-old from St. Clairsville, Ohio, in her final year of eligibility, won the Super Stock Division.
Two 12-year-olds also were crowned world champions: Maddie Minch, of Strongsville, Ohio, in the Masters Division and Alexander Khachigian of Vallejo, Calif., in Stock.
The youngest winner was 10-year-old Logan Maves, of Madison, Wis., in Rally Stock. Nick Zimmerman, 14, of Cloverdale, Ind., won the Rally Super Stock title and Freddy Atchison, a muscular 14-year-old who enjoys wrestling, was the Rally Masters winner.
Each champion received a $5,000 scholarship. The international field for the 75th edition of the race featured more than 500 boys and girls.
