LAKE OF THE OZARKS, MO – The largest and longest-running unsanctioned powerboat race in the country, the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout, returns to Central Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks this weekend on Saturday, Aug. 27 and Sunday, Aug. 28.
The high-speed, action-packed main event, which has been hailed as one of the “must-see boating events in the country” by Boating Magazine, takes place at Captain Ron’s Bar and Grill in Sunrise Beach with powerboats racing individually to see who can log the fastest speed to be crowned the overall “Top Gun” for 2022.
The reigning Shootout champion is American Ethanol, which has won the Top Gun title the last seven years running with a winning speed of 193 miles per hour in 2021.
All proceeds raised from the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout and its corresponding events are donated to eight Lake-area fire and rescue departments and numerous charitable organizations around the Lake of the Ozarks. In 2021, the Shootout raised $445,000 for nearly 40 different local charities.
