Lake of the Ozarks Shootout 2012

The  Annual Lake of the Ozarks Shootout will be held at Captain Ron's  Bar & Grill August 18-26th.  The Lake of the Ozarks Shootout is the largest unsanctioned boat race in the Midwest and draws over 100 racers and 100,000 spectators and will benefit the Lake Area Rescue Teams and other local charities. 

Powerboat Magazine Readers have voted this race the #1 boat race/shootout in the country and has also been listed as one of the 8 "must see" boating events.  Official speeds in 2011 were clocked at 208 mph, a few claiming even faster speeds.  This year new radar guns may prove these claims to be true.  In 2011, Bill Tomlinson hit speeds of 208 on three different runs, Skater boats were flying at 191 mph and even the pontoons were racing at speeds of 107 mph. This will be a great year to check out the races and hopefully see some record-breaking speeds from the racers.
