Motorsports: Kauffman's career to end Saturday

Kauffman's career to end Saturday


Kauffman noted that records are made to be broken and that someday he believes his 129-career win mark might be surpassed.

"I did this because I enjoyed it," Kauffman added. "One thing led to another and it's been a lot of fun. It takes a lot of time and effort and money to do it this long, but it is something I've always enjoyed."

"Anytime you win a race, however big or small, it's all about the competition," he added. "It didn't matter if the race paid $100,000 or a few thousand to win, it's all about winning the race and that's what drives all of us racers."

The weekend's racing will bring to a close the 2013 point championship for the track. Selinsgrove's Blane Heimbach, who has five wins on the season, is looking for his first-ever 410 sprint car title. He leads defending champion Chad Layton of Harrisburg by 215 points.

Last year, Dale Blaney of Hartford, Ohio, became the first All Star driver to win an All Star-sanctioned event at Port Royal when he won the Night Before the 50 feature.

Doug Esh is the defending winner of the Tuscarora 50. It was his second win in the event.

Fred Rahmer is the one of three drivers -- Doug Wolfgang and Lance Dewease, the others -- to have won the event four times.

The racing card includes the late models tonight and the pro stocks on Saturday.

Racing each night is at 7.
