Only four weeks until Show-Me 100 weekend and some three-day passes remain

63ab3512-8a7c-4127-a793-918b48f1779eWheatland, Missouri (April 27, 2016) – The season’s biggest dirt-track weekend at Lucas Oil Speedway is only four weeks away and a select number of prime seats remain.

Three-day passes for the 24th annual Lucas Oil Show-Me 100 Presented by ProtecttheHarvest.com on May 26-28 guarantee a reserved, stadium-style seat with high backs and arm rests along the front straightaway.

“We’ve had a terrific response to the three-day passes, but fans still have time as we are just a month out from race weekend,” Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Dan Robinson said. “For one of the biggest dirt-track racing weekends in the country, the three-day pass is a great way for our fans to go. It takes away any of the worry about where you’re going to sit or how early you might have to get to the track to find the seat that you want.”

Three-day tickets are $95 and can be purchased by calling the Lucas Oil Speedway office at (417) 282-5984 or email anna@lucasoilspeedway.com for more information.

For the first time, the Show-Me 100 – co-sanctioned by the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and the Lucas Oil MLRA – will have Late Model feature races each of the three nights with $6,000-to-win features leading into Saturday’s $30,000-to-win, 100-lap main event.

The Thursday race is the “Cowboy Classic” in honor of Allen “Cowboy” Chancellor, former co-owner of the MLRA. The Friday feature will pay tribute to Don and Billie Gibson, former owners of West Plains Motor Speedway where the Show-Me 100 originated. Those two features will help set the first 18 starters in the Show-Me 100.

This year’s Show-Me 100 weekend is adding about $60,000 in total purse money, growing the total purse to about $170,000.

The first 18 starters in the 100-lap Show-Me 100 will be determined by average finish from the Thursday and Friday features. Previously, those positions were set through time trials and heats on a feature-less Friday.

For the fourth straight year, the Midwest Sheet Metal Last-Chance Challenge will precede the Show-Me 100. Sponsored by the Springfield, Missouri-based Midwest Sheet Metal, the non-qualifiers race will pay $2,500 to win or the winner has the option to start at the back of the field for a guaranteed $2,000.

Last year, Chris Simpson the Last-Chance Challenge, opted to start the feature and charged from 31st to 3rd.

The Late Models will be joined by the Pitts Homes USRA Modified division running full programs the first two nights, with their finishes setting lineups for the B Mains and Feature on Saturday.

Last year’s Show-Me 100, won by Jonathan Davenport, received the prestigious Racing Promotion Monthly Award for 2015 Outstanding Annual Short Track Event.

The Budweiser Weekly Championship Series at Lucas Oil Speedway resumes this Saturday night with $5 Night Presented by KOLR Channel 10. Gates open at 5 p.m. with hot laps at 7 and racing at 7:30.

A limited number of VIP Suites are available for the Saturday, April 30 program. Contact Anna Harnden at (417) 282-5984 or via email at anna@lucasoilspeedway.com.
