Go-karts: Family racing passion extends to 17-year-old Laura Long


Even though racing takes up her time, she is focused on the upcoming basketball season and going to college where she wants to be a nurse.

"I think we could have gone further last year," she said. "We lost to Shikellamy in the first round of districts as they just wanted it more than we did. I am really excited about this year and we want to win districts."

Long has been playing basketball since the seventh grade.

She is an avid hunter and when she can come back from college next season, she will race the go-kart when she can.

"I always want to win," she said.

That's the type of answer you'd expect from a family whose passion is racing at Selinsgrove.
