For Chris Wagner and the team at WIA Marine Insurance in Lake Ozark, Mo., this week marks another great opportunity for them to intermingle with boaters, most of whom are clients or potential clients, as well as continue to help promote the lake and support the offshore race teams in town for the two-day, three-race Offshore at the Ozarks-Cat Edition set for this Friday and Saturday (October 2-3) on the popular Central Missouri waterway.

Presented by Performance Boat Center in Osage Beach and taking place at Camden on the Lake Resort in Lake Ozark, the first-year race is expecting upward of 15 to 20 teams for the two-class event.
“We’re going to be on hand for the meet and greet on Thursday evening at Camden on the Lake,” Wagner said. “We always support local events because we understand how much they mean to our community. To have a substantial boat race come to town—especially this late in the boating season—is pretty cool. We contributed a sizable donation to the event to make sure the race would happen and because we know the impact it has on the local community.”
Wagner said WIA is once again sponsoring the CR Racing team owned by Casey Boaz and Rob Unnerstall. WIA has been a sponsor of the team’s 32-foot Doug Wright Super Stock-class raceboat for several seasons and recently sponsored the team during the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout in late August.
“If anyone has any insurance questions for us, we’ll be there to answer them,” said Wagner, adding that WIA’s Christy Wright is excited to cheer on her husband, Mike, and his teammate Loren Peters in the LPC Super Stock-class raceboat. “We’re looking forward to seeing all the race teams and fans at the lake this week. We’ll have some giveaways at our booth as well.”
