One of the most popular boating destinations in the United States is hosting its first offshore powerboat race in some time. The 2014 Lake Race will be held on Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks (LOTO in performance boating circles) on the weekend of June 6-8, but the festival starts June 1. The weekend kicks off on Thursday, June 5, with the Lake Race Props and Hoses Poker Run to benefit the local fire and rescue. On Friday, the hardware will be on display at the street party. On Saturday, the boats will be testing, and Sunday, June 8, is race day. For more info, visit www.lakerace.com.
