NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - It was a fun day by the river raising funds for The North Platte Area Sports Commission. Dusty Trails provided tanks for the eight teams making their way from Buffalo Bill Ranch to Cody Park. The event started with tank decorating and costume judging.

“Tanking is a great time anyway everybody has so much fun with it but boy you add costumes like that and get a bunch of people together... everyone has so much fun with it," said Dusty Trails owner Dusty Barner.

Everyone certainly did have fun with it and the Super Mario themed team won the $200 for best dressed.

As for the race itself, “Cool Runnings” took first place and the $200 for their record time of forty six minutes, fifteen seconds. “We have to win, there’s too much at stake," said team member Trevor Sewald. Some teams taking the race more seriously than others, but all involved had a great time.

Perhaps Dusty said it best: “We’re all just out here having fun, what a wonderful community. Everybody pulls together and just has a great time like this."
