Like father like daughter?
Seneca Rautenberg will find out Saturday night.
The daughter of the late Dick Rautenberg, whose name is synonymous with dirt track racing in this corner of the country, will put on a driving suit and helmet and roll out onto the track when Cocopah Speedway presents its Championship Night program, which includes the finale in a series of three Powder Puff races in 2013.
And it won’t be just any car that Rautenberg will be driving in the Power Puff event. She will be strapped into the Buick Regal her father, better known as “Deacon Dick” Rautenberg, drove to his 500th career win in 1999 at then-Yuma Speedway in the Pro-Stock Division.
