By Lyndal Scranton – WHEATLAND, Missouri (May 2, 2018) – With just three weeks remaining until one of Late Model dirt racing’s crown jewel events rolls into Lucas Oil Speedway, fans are reminded that a limited number of three-day reserved seats remain for the 26th annual Show-Me 100 Presented by ProtecttheHarvest.com.
The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series major is set for May 24-26. Lucas Oil Speedway admissions director Nichole McMillan said the three-day passes, which include a prime-viewing location in the upper six rows of the front straightaway grandstand, are $100 apiece.
Should there be any reserved, three-day seating locations unsold they will go on sale each of the three race days as single-day reserved seats. They will be available to purchase from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. the day of the event with costs of $35 (May 24 and May 25) and $45 (May 26).
“So the best way to assure yourself a great seat each night is to take advantage of the three-day pass while they’re available,” Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Dan Robinson said. “We hope fans who are considering that will give Nichole a call as soon as possible.”
McMillan added that handicapped seating is limited and unless purchased as a three-day reserved will also be considered first-come, first-served each race day.
In addition to the Late Models, the Show-Me 100 will include Pitts Homes USRA Modified programs each night.
For the first time, the entire final-night of Show-Me 100 weekend, which will include two B-Mains and the Midwest Sheet Metal Show-Me Challenge plus the USRA Modified program’s B-Mains and A-Main, will air live on MAVTV Motorsports Network.
Winner of the 100-lap Show-Me 100, captured a year ago by Bobby Pierce, will earn $30,000. The USRA Modified 30-lap feature will see the winner taking home $1,200.
The first two nights of the Show-Me 100 weekend, on May 24 and May 25, will be available live on LucasOilRacing.TV on-demand and shown on a delayed basis later on MAVTV. Night one will be highlighted by the “Cowboy Classic” for the Late Models, a feature honoring the late Allen “Cowboy” Chancellor who was former owner of the MLRA.
Night two action will find the Late Model drivers chasing another $6,000-to-win feature, the “Tribute to Don and Billie Gibson” in honor of the former owners of West Plains Motor Speedway who founded the Show-Me 100 in 1993.
