Thunderstorms force cancellation of Lucas Oil Speedway Weekly Racing Series program
Wheatland, Missouri (May 19, 2018) - Lucas Oil Speedway's scheduled Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series program on Saturday night was cancelled after a heavy thunderstorm with rain and lightning, just before race time.
It was the second round of heavy rain on Saturday and that, plus the priority of safety for fans and drivers as a severe thunderstorm warning was issued, prompted the decision to call things off.
"We look forward to seeing everyone next week for three big days of the Show-Me 100," Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Dan Robinson said.
The 26th annual Show-Me 100 Presented by ProtecttheHarvest.com, featuring the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt/Lucas Oil MLRA Late Models and USRA Modifieds, is set for Thursday through Saturday.
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.
Saturday night's 100-lap Late Model feature will pay $30,000 to the winner. The final night will include two B-Mains and the Midwest Sheet Metal Show-Me Challenge plus the USRA Modified program's B-Mains and A-Main.
