  • Hosted by Beavers at the Dam, the Offshore Super Series is coming back to the Lake of the Ozarks in 2013. The speed and power of offshore boat racing will hit the Lake June 7-9.
    With National and World Champion, as well as world record holder, Dave Scott, an offshore racing legend, as the honorary chairperson, the Lake of the Ozarks Invitational Offshore Super Series will be a world-class racing event attracting teams, support operations and thousands of spectators from the area and beyond.
    And it will come with a new twist this time.
    Working with the City of Lake Ozark, the Missouri Department of Transportation and Ameren Missouri, the event committee is excited to announce that Bagnell Dam will be closed to traffic to allow fans to view the races from the Dam.
    The goal is to generate significant new tourism revenue to the Lake of the Ozark economy at a time before the traditional summer vacation season. The race committee is working to meet all race event financial commitments through sponsorships and designate the remaining funds for local charities as well as beautification projects in the Historic Bagnell Dam Strip area.
    Sponsorships will be available to help fund the various aspects of the event. Volunteers and in-kind donations will be appreciated in order to generate the most revenue for charitable donations.
    Editor's Note: The Offshore Super Series committee clarified Dec. 13 that plans to close the Dam for the race are tentative. The OSS race committee is currently working with officials from Ameren Missouri, the Missouri Department of Transportation, and the City of Lake Ozark on a plan to allow spectators onto the dam in order to view the race.
