The roar of unlimiteds racing on Lake Sammamish is music to the ears of many people who are fans of the sport of hyrdoplane racing.
And fans will get their ear full June 12-14 at Lake Sammamish State Park at the annual Tastin’ N Racin.
But for folks that like just music, Tastin’ N Racin offers that venue, too. Playing on the main stage will be Rail on June 13 and Randy Hansen on June 14. Hansen will do a tribute to Jimmy Hendrix.
For people who don’t like hydroplane racing or the hard music, there is food. Tastin’ N Racing annually has a variety of booths that sell tasty food.
In addition, there are arts and crafts from Northwest artisans, and a family fun area for children.
But back to the hydros.
The KZOK 102.5 Cup has its best selection of boats in recent years. Fans get the opportunity to view 1-litre, 2.5 stock, 5-litre and national modified hydros, flat-bottom runabouts, vintage hydros and grand prix hydros.
Racing action begins at 9 a.m. June 13 and continues through June 14. Read more
