Speed On The Water ‘In The Lead’ Video Series Renewed For 2022

Focused on Tony Chiaramonte of DCB Performance Boats and Waves and Wheels’ founder Justin Wagner, the final two episodes of the inaugural Speed On The Water In The Lead video series powered by Mercury Racing with support from MYCO Trailers and Hamilton Marine Finance will air in November and December. Brad DiMaggio and Ryan Wenk of Scrapyard Media—a Michigan-based video production company—as well as speedonthewater.com co-publisher Jason Johnson were in Southern California last week capturing the footage for the Chiaramonte segment.

It was the final shoot of the year for the series.

Coming back next year, the Speed On The Water “In The Lead” video series told the story of Mystic Powerboats founder and multi-time Lake of the Ozarks Shootout champion John Cosker—one of seven episodes in the inaugural series (click image to watch the video).

But thanks to Mercury Racing’s renewed commitment to the series for 2022, we’ll all be at it again next year. And we couldn’t be happier about that. (MYCO also has already renewed its backing for next year’s series.)

In June, the Scrapyard Media and speedonthewater.com teams traveled to the Lake of the Ozarks to capture the story of Performance Boat Center founders Brett Manire and Mark Waddington (click image to watch the video).

Fans of the In The Lead series, which most recently aired its segment chronicling the visionary partnership between Performance Boat Center founders Mark Waddington and Brett Manire, will be pleased to know we’ll be producing long-format videos that tell the stories of six of the most compelling and influential figures in the high-performance powerboating world. As for who those subjects will be, we’re keeping that under wraps.

In addition to those six bi-monthly videos, we’ll be producing several shorter-format videos for a new series we’re dubbing “In The Know.” We’ll be releasing those brief segments throughout the year, as well as a handful of even shorter and more-playful videos unrelated to either series.

The first “In The Lead” series video told the remarkable story of Grant Bruggemann, a multi-time offshore racing world champion and the founder of Grant’s Signature Racing in Bradenton, Fla. Photo by Pete Boden copyright Shoot 2 Thrill Pix (click image to watch the video).
