BIO-KLEEN Boasts Performance On and Off the Race Course
Since the Shootout’s early days, Bio-Kleen’s eco-friendly products have been essential to performance boating.
As boats race down the waterways this year, Shootout fans will be
“ooohing” and “ahhhing” over the glitter and shine. And while the effort
to make boats go fast is obvious, many don’t realize that it takes a
huge investment of time to have the boats looking their best on the race
course. One particular v-hull at the race has the answer to boaters’
cleaning needs emblazoned on the side: Bio-Kleen.
The American-made Bio-Kleen has a product for most any detailing or
cleaning job, whether cleaning the boat, trailer or accessories. For
professional or amateur boaters, the right product can be matched to
their needs for interior or exterior tasks, off-shore, fishing,
pontoons, aluminum, fiberglass or inflatable boats, jet skis or boat
covers. “We specialize in the marine industry,” said Bio-Kleen Marketing
Director Blake Bancroft, but he pointed out that with (over 100)
different kinds of non-toxic products, there are options available for
janitorial, motorcycle, auto, snowmobile, household, and recreational
vehicle needs as well.
The biodegradable products have been in existence since 1987 and are
guaranteed to outperform any leading brands. Bio-Kleen representatives
have been participating in the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout since the
inception of the races, according to Bancroft, not just as a company but
also as spectators and participants. Because of the company’s
involvement in the event, many boaters have discovered the quality of
Bancroft said Bio-Kleen’s 35-foot Cigarette boat races in the actual
Shootout, often winning its particular class. But racing isn’t where it
ends for Bio-Kleen. The staff also has a booth in Vendor Village at
Captain Ron’s, and they have their products and boat on display at the
kick-off party, located at the Laurie Fairgrounds. Towing the Bio-Kleen
boat behind an RV and displaying the products gives the company’s
representatives the chance to mingle with the other racers and fans,
while also displaying their product. In addition, Bancroft said the
Bio-Kleen boat participates in the poker run and Make-a-Wish Foundation
Wishing Ride. Look for the Bio-Kleen boat on the race course and the
company’s display at the Vendor Village and Shootout in the Park. For
