I have lived in the Tri-Cities for almost 9 years and have gone to the races probably 6 times. Every time we went, we tried to fight on the Kennewick side for a good spot. Tons of people and lots of cement make for a short and hot day.

This year was my first year on the Pasco side, and we had a private tent that Townsquare Media provided for us. WOW is about all I can say. We had our own beach with lots of grass, catered food, the best view, and tons of shade.

My family had the best time all weekend and my daughter even has a favorite boat...the "O Boy! Orberto"! Although I think she just loves the name and the colors.
