Port Royal Speedway The Only Place To See Super Sprints And Super Lates Every Saturday Night

Kenny Jacobs Visits Port Royal Speedway For Kauffman Farewell Tribute Races Saturday,

Ohio veteran will meet and greet fans with friend Keith Kauffman before the show


Port Royal – A pair of good old sprint car friends, Keith Kauffman of Mifflintown and Kenny Jacobs of Holmesville, OH., will come together at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night for the oval’s Keith Kauffman Farewell Tribute Night.

Kauffman and Jacobs will meet and greet fans and sign autographs behind the grandstand on Saturday night from approximately 5:15 – 5:45 pm.

The duo became good and close friends over the last 25 years dating back to the 1980s when Jacobs first came to the area to pilot the potent Weikert’s Livestock No. 29 sprint car and over the years the pair went on to compete together on the road at various times while racing with both the World of Outlaws and All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints.

While Kauffman became the winningest driver in history at Port Royal during his career with 128 sprint wins and 13 track titles, Jacobs went on to become the most successful driver in All Stars history, piling up some 98 victories with the circuit.

Jacobs will make the special trip to Port Royal for the event to not only see his old friend but to help celebrate the Farewell Tribute races and event for Kauffman.

Kauffman declared this season his farewell tour and as such the track that he made his name at and called home on Saturday’s for nearly his entire career when racing in the area will honor the legend with a pair of special races for both the Aumiller’s Insurance 410 Sprints and the Gray’s Auto and Towing Late Models.
