Watch Lake Race 2016 From a Boat or Jet Ski Rental

Lake Race weekend is here! The Lake of the Ozarks is home to this exciting invitational powerboat race, and the best way to watch all of the race day action is from one of our Lake of the Ozarks boat rentals. Fun activities will be going on Thursday through Sunday, and all of the races will take place on Saturday, June 5, 2016.

BomBay Boat Rental Co. wants to make sure you have the best seat in the house for all of the race day action. Our ski boats and tritoons can take you and all of your friends close to the race course, right next to the excitement. Jet ski rentals are the perfect way to maneuver in and out of all of those other boats and really get a great spot. 

No matter how you decide to do it, the main idea is to get out on the water and truly enjoy the Lake Race experience. Below you will find Lake TV's highlight video from last year's festivities. It was awesome, and we expect this year to be even better!

Festival of Speed4:00 - 9:00 pm

New this year, an entire section of Osage Beach Parkway, west of the Grand Glaize Bridge, will be closed off to host this street festival. It will feature speed boats, classic cars, motorcycles, and a vendor village. It should be a wonderful time for the entire family.

Lake Race Meet & Greet: 4:00 - 11:00 pm

The historic Bagnell Dam Strip will be closed to traffic beginning at 9:00 am Friday morning so the race boats can fill the street. Fans will be able to check out the boats up close, and even talk to the drivers. There will also be plenty of entertainment and a kids' zone.

Our philosophy is that you should be out on the water every day, but especially on this one! The race is exciting to watch from anywhere, but the very best viewing experience is from on the lake, right beside the course, which stretches from the 0 MM to the 3 MM.  

10:40 am - Opening ceremony at Beavers at the Dam
11:00 am - 5:00 pm - Races run until all heats are finished
7:00 pm - Awards ceremony

Sunday, June 5

The races may be over, but the fun isn't. There are two activities planned for today, one involving your feet, but the other is perfect for our Lake of the Ozarks boat rentals

7:00 am - Lake Race 5K Run: At 9:00 am, runners will start at Beavers at the Dam, travel below the Dam on Valley Road to JJ Twig's, then head up the Strip, back to Beavers. 

10:00 am - Props & Hoses Poker Run: $20 raffle tickets will be available at each participating location for a 50/50 drawing, which will take place at Redhead Yacht Club at 4:00 pm. 50% of the money will go to the winner, and the other half will benefit local firefighters.
