Wheatland, Missouri - Story by Trenton Berry Lucas Oil MLRA PR. The running of the 21st Annual Lucas Oil Show-Me 100 Presented byProtectTheHarvest.com has already received a huge boost for 2013 with the addition of the Midwest Sheet Metal Show-Me Challenge Non-Qualifiers Race and an increase of $10,000 to the A-Main purse, but it has just gotten even bigger! Lucas Oil Speedway Officials are pleased to announce the addition of a full Lucas Oil MLRAshow on Thursday night to kick off the Memorial Day weekend event in lieu of the traditional open practice session. "We are always trying to come up with ways to make the Show-Me 100 even better and more exciting," commented MLRA Series Director and Lucas Oil SpeedwayGeneral Manager, Dan Robinson. "The idea of actually racing on Thursday night has always intrigued us, and we felt like the time was right to add the show."
The race will be sanctioned by the Lucas Oil MLRA, with the 30-lap Main Event paying $5,000 to win and $500 to start. The tire rule for the race will be the same as the Show-Me 100, providing a valuable chance for the Late Model Drivers to dial in their set-ups prior to Friday's Show-Me 100 qualifying. It will be a full points race for Lucas Oil MLRA competitors. The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will be given two provisionals as well. "We are hopeful to put an interesting mix of competitors together for the event, in kind of a preview of the big show to come, later in the weekend," said Robinson.
The USRA Modifieds will also compete on Thursday at the Diamond of Dirt Tracks. The Modified race will be for USRA Points only, as no track points will be awarded. The Modified main event will pay $500 to win on Thursday night. "Our Modifieds always do a terrific job and it's nice to give them another chance to race in front of a big crowd," Robinson shared.
The Friday and Saturday portions of the 21st Annual event remain unchanged, a limited number of 2-day Reserved Seat Tickets are still available. To reserve a seat for Friday and Saturday call LaRay Hankins today at (417)282-5984. All tickets for Thursday's show will be General Admission only.
