• New Lake of the Ozarks Invitational Powerboat Race

    “This is how we Dew the Lake!” That’s the theme of the new Lake Race 2013 on Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks. It was announced last week during a press conference to recognize the event’s title sponsors, Mountain Dew and Formula Boats of Missouri. World champion offshore racer David Scott, who calls the lake his home away from home, was on hand at the Formula Boats dealer to show his support for the first Lake of the Ozarks invitational powerboat race, which takes place June 6-9 on the northeast portion of the lake near Bagnell Dam and the Lake Ozark Strip.

    Scott, who has been selected honorary chairperson of Lake Race 2013, was grateful to be asked to participate in the first-year event.

    World champion offshore racer David Scott is the honorary chairperson of Lake Race 2013, which is set to take place June 6-9 on Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks.
    “This race is shaping up to be the most spectator-friendly event I’ve ever been a part of—you’re going to be able to see the boats nonstop,” said Scott, referring to the 4.5-mile course that makes two turns in front of Bagnell Dam, which will be closed to traffic. “It should be a competitive course, too. It will be fast but challenging at the same time. I’m really excited about the race. I think it’s going to be fantastic for the lake and outstanding for everyone involved.”

    Lake Ozark Mayor Johnnie Fransezkos agreed. “This is one of the biggest events in our city’s history, and we are very excited that it will be free to the public,” the mayor exclaimed.

    The Bagnell Dam Strip Association (BDSA), a not-for-profit organization, is the organizing entity for the charitable event, which will feature great views of the race from several points on the lake as well as the race pits and a vendor village along the historic strip. The race also will be streamed live online and feature nearly 10 hours of coverage on local television.

      Awesome news! Exactly what the lake needed was some more affordable events to bring people back down to the lake. With the cost of everything constantly going up year after year I only make it to the lake for the Shoot out and Aquapalooza but you can bet that I have added one more event for this summer.

      Thank you!
