Three Lakes Shootout attracts racers Submitted: 06/23/2018
Three Lakes - Roads near Three Lakes typically limit drivers to 55 miles per hour.

Thankfully for the racers at the Three Lakes Shootout, there's no speed limit on the water.

Boat drivers took to Big Stone Lake Saturday to see how fast they could go in the Shootout's Radar Run.

Racers drove boats one at a time through a set course in front of a packed crowd.

The competition is an important part of drawing visitors to Three Lakes.

"We want to bring people into Three Lakes and see our chain of lakes, see how beautiful it is here, enjoy the Northwoods and hopefully they'll come back," said event volunteer Susan Kordula.

All money raised from the event went to support AmVets, the oldest national organization for military veterans and their families.
