BRANSON, Mo – The City of Branson was voted the best race site of 2022 by Powerboat Nationals staff and race teams after racing four times in 2022 on Lake Taneycomo.

Powerboat Nationals is an entertaining event filled with the world’s fastest inshore powerboats that turn Lake Taneycomo into a thrilling track as pilots maintain top speeds to race each other for the win. There are over 25 teams in Powerboat Nationals who travel throughout the United States competing in different cities and sites. They voted Branson as the best.

“The hospitality and support from the City of Branson, the Chamber and CVB, Branson Landing plus the many shows, attractions, outdoor adventure and spectators are unmatched,” said Powerboat Nationals Managing Director, Dan Bunting. “We look forward to returning to Branson in 2023 and for many years to come,” Bunting said.

The award was presented to Mayor Larry Milton and Samantha Gutting, Senior Vice President/Chief Sales Officer for the Branson Chamber and CVB at an awards banquet that was held at Missouri Ridge Distillery in Branson, Missouri.
