With a mere week remaining until the commencement of Shootout Offshore’s UIM/APBA/Powerboat P1-sanctioned National Championship Series races and all events preceding its two-day, multi-class runs, the countdown is officially on at the Lake of the Ozarks. Since 1993, offshore racing along our manmade reservoir has operated under a handful of alias names and sanctioning bodies; however, 2024 marks the very first year that the 36-year-strong Lake of the Ozarks Annual Shootout has taken this event under its wing.

Such an extraordinary transition demands an equally impressive presenting sponsorship. Therefore, the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout has announced its newly established partnership with XINSURANCE for its inaugural races on May 31 and June 1, 2024.

“As we approach this year’s Shootout Offshore race here at the Lake of the Ozarks, we want to grow this event into its former glory and it was only fitting to approach a national sponsor like XINSURANCE—a well-known name in the powerboating world and beyond—who has a passion for both offshore racing and giving back to local communities,” explained Shootout Executive Director Leah Martin.

XINSURANCE President and Chief Executive Officer Rick J. Lindsey’s present-day successes began humbly in the mailroom of his father’s insurance firm approximately fifty years ago. His business ventures have since evolved to shield a myriad of varying insurance policies and specialty risks across the United States of America and beyond. In a world where suing an insurance company for a fast and easy payout is commonplace, Lindsey has personally testified on behalf of a vast array of clientele against frivolous litigation. This, along with his tenacity for recreation and all-things sports, are what draw him into the world of high-performance boating, and events such as Shootout Offshore.

“The XINSURANCE team is excited to participate and compete in the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout and Shootout Offshore 2024 events,” Lindsey said. “The excitement of competitive racing fueled by teams and crews dedicated to high-level performance is inspiring to us all.”
