Tieton is a bit out of the norm for Gittreville. After an earlier, wonderful event at the nearby Wilridge Winery, a handful of us started racing on Tieton’s streets in 2013. In subsequent years, we opened the event up to all those interested in coming and — cars came from as far away as New Zealand. The event grew into a three day bacchanal with the original city street racing joined by epic Gordon Bennett road runs south of town, events in the Campbell Orchards to the north as well as Driving Tests, Drag Races and Concours d’Elegance.

Tieton, Monaco of the Yakima Valley!

The magnitude of being responsible for such a grand event eventually overwhelmed the core group. Safety, liability and administrative issues escalated incrementally each year to the point where it was decided to suspend the 2020 event.

Then COVID.
