Lucas Oil Speedway Show-Me 100 Weekend Up Next

BATAVIA, OH – In Wheatland, MO, a town with a population of under 400, lies an immaculate 3/8-mile oval facility known as “The Diamond of Race Tracks”. This weekend when the nation’s top dirt late model drivers invade Lucas Oil Speedway, the transient population greatly increases. On May 27th-29th the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and the Lucas Oil Midwest Latemodel Racing Association (MLRA) will co-sanction the 29th edition of the Lucas Oil Show-Me 100 presented by ProtectTheHarvest.com.
In 2020, a postponed event date saw Payton Looney become just the second driver from Missouri to win the Show-Me 100, picking up his biggest career win.
Thursday’s program will feature a $6,000-to-win, $600-to-start event, honoring the late Allen “Cowboy” Chancellor, longtime MLRA Owner/Promoter. The 5th Annual “Cowboy Classic” will include a full program of: Allstar Performance Time Trials, Heat Races, B-Mains, and a 45-lap main event.
The action on Friday, May 28th will pay tribute to Don and Billie Gibson, former promoters of West Plains Motor Speedway and founders of the Show-Me 100. The activities will include a complete program of: Allstar Performance Time Trials, Heat Races, B-Mains, and a 40-lap, $6,000-to-win, $600-to-start main event.
Drivers will earn points in each of the two preliminary nights; those points combined will determine the line-ups for Saturday night’s $30,000-to-win, $2,000-to-start finale.
The USRA Modifieds will be featured as the support class each night. Their activities on Thursday and Friday, May 27th-28th will feature a complete program of: Time Trials, Heat Races, B-Mains, and a 20-lap, $750-to-win main event each night.
On Saturday night, consolation events for the Lucas Oil Late Models and the USRA Modifieds will be held, plus the Midwest Sheet Metal Show-Me Challenge. The Lucas Oil Show-Me 100 main event will follow the Midwest Sheet Metal Show-Me Challenge on Saturday night. The USRA Modifieds will cap off the weekend action with their $1,500-to-win main event.
Tim McCreadie currently leads the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series point standings going into this weekend’s events. Hudson O’Neal trails McCreadie by just 65 points. Jonathan Davenport sits in third, while Tyler Erb and Ricky Thornton Jr are tied for fourth in series points.
