In Sprint Cup race at Kansas Speedway on Sunday, Matt Kenseth was the winning driver. But one of the most popular figures yesterday didn't wear a racing helmet.
Tate Stevens, as an employee of the city of Belton two years ago, attended meetings at Kansas Speedway. Wearing a cowboy hat Stevens, now 38, appeared at the track as a professional country music performer.
In a life-changing experience, Stevens was the winner last year in season two of "The X Factor," a network television show singing competition.
After attending his first NASCAR race, Stevens performed before a sold-out crowd Sunday night at the Midland Theater.
