With the entire group of DCB Performance Boats representatives—including her husband, Travis Richardson, and four other DCB customers who brought their M35 Widebody models to Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks—sitting upstairs at Camden on the Lake Resort eating breakfast on Friday, Summer Richardson went down to the docks, untied her boat, idled over to the gas dock and headed out for a few test runs up and down the lake.

It was Richardson’s first time at the lake and the Queen of the Desert—the title she earned in April after running 143 mph at the Desert Storm Poker Run Shootout in her DCB F32 catamaran with twin 1,050-hp engines from Teague Custom Marine—wanted to get a better feel for the waterway before running in the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout on Saturday.

For Richardson, who owns My Garage App with her husband and is the daughter of Don London (a past King of the Desert winner in his 38-foot Skater Powerboats catamaran and former drag boat racer), that was just another day of boating for the 29-year-old California girl who grew up around the sport and motorsports in general.
