LOTO Shootout Promises a Week of Fun & Speed

 

The Lake of the Ozarks Poker Run & Shootout—which kicks off tomorrow with an RC “Mini-Shootout” and “Run What Ya Brung” poker run—offers a badly needed shot in the arm for an industry hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic. Following this weekend’s action, Tuesday brings a Shootout Hall of Fame dinner and induction that honors five multi-talented individuals, including two Speedboat Magazine test-team drivers, Bob Teague and Myrick Coil.

For the eighth consecutive year, the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout Board of Directors is honoring a select group of inductees into the Shootout Hall of Fame. The 2020 inductees will be celebrated on Tuesday, Aug. 25, at the The Stables at Cannon Smoked Saloon in Sunrise Beach, MO. This year’s class includes:

Bob Teague, the world-champion marathon racer and owner/founder of Teague Custom Marine of Valencia, CA.

Myrick Coil, mechanic and shop foreman at Missouri’s renowned Performance Boat Center and multiple World Champion offshore boat racer.

Tiffany Maasen, wife of Poly Lift Boat Lifts co-owner Mark Maasen, volunteer and raiser of countless dollars to help needy children.

Brad Harrington, owner/throttleman of the 1990 Saber Cyclone Team Kansas, a frequent Shootout participant.

Tim Kowalski, owner of Bio-Kleen (Kalamazoo, MI), often seen in his 1993 Cigarette 35′ Café Racer, powered by twin 700-hp Sterling engines. Each of the Hall of Famers will have a plaque in their name added to the famous Bob Morgan Memorial Shootout Hall of Fame wall at the Lake of the Ozarks.

Here’s the full LOTO schedule:
