Louisville, Ky. (WHAS11) - The Great Balloon Race this year was neck-in-neck, with two balloons tossing grass-seed bags within inches of one another.

The RE/MAX balloon tossed the bag right on the target, and just moments later, the Jasper Mechanics balloon came within inches of the shot.

After careful measurements, Kentucky Derby Festival officials announced Jasper Engines & Transmissions piolted by Sean Askren as the winner.
