Each year, the Shootout brings a huge turnout to the Lake Area and it brings some really fast top speeds. Ron Duggan, owner of Captain Ron’s, says beginning next year we may not see quite as high of top speeds because they’ll be shortening the track to three-quarters of a mile instead of the full mile. He says they’re doing this with one goal in mind.
Duggan also says, because of the increase of people at the Shootout, the nearby docks are getting damaged by the wake. They will be looking into what they can do to fix that issue, as well.
