Carrie J Sixkiller
Powered by a 1993 "B-Nauti" Baja 24 Outlaw with a 525SC, Carrie has not won her class every year and that's okay. Winning is a bonus for her. Being part of something that helps so many people is the real win.
She has however won her class 12 times in the last 16 years with her best time on the 1 mile course of 79 mph. Last year she set her own personal record at 73 mph on the 3/4 mile course. That is something she has been fighting for while building a brand the empowers women in this sport.
Jim Davis of Go Fast Photos & Videos
One of Davis’ first experiences riding in a powerboat was when his father-in-law took him for a ride in a 26-foot American Offshore boat that went well over 100 mph.
“I couldn’t believe it, the power and I was hooked with boats,” he said. “When we got down to Lake of the Ozarks, I’d never seen boats like that before and I wanted other people to experience what I saw.”
Tony & Jaime Townsend of OPC
During last month’s Lake of the Ozarks Shootout in Central Missouri, Tony Townsend, an Iowa-based performance boater who has spent a good amount of time at Lake of the Ozarks as a teenager and over the past several years since his wife and two daughters picked up a second home at the lake, received a lot of attention for his newly formed Ozark Powerboat Club and its accompanying website and social media pages—all of which have an OPC acronym.
