Two of my most recent stories on speedonthewater.com gave mention to the news that the 27th annual Lake of the Ozarks Shootout has a new presenting sponsor. Yet neither of those stories was actually about the popular event in Central Missouri. They both related to said sponsor—Performance Boat Center in Osage Beach, Mo.
One was on the merger of Performance Boat Center with Nauti Marine—the successful rigging and setup shop owned by world champion offshore racer David Scott, who is an eight-time Shootout Top Gun winner—and the other was a Forecast 2015 interview with Performance Boat Center’s Brett Manire.
“Whether it was a couple of banners or presenting a portion of the radio/TV broadcast, since opening Performance Boat Center we’ve always been a sponsor of some sort for the Shootout,” Manire said during a busy Monday afternoon.
