After 25 events, the Show-Me 100 has only been won by 1 driver from Missouri
WHEATLAND, Missouri (May 2018) – With the 26th annual Show-Me 100 Presented by ProtecttheHarvest.com only a couple of days away, here are 12 things to watch this weekend whether you’re headed to Lucas Oil Speedway or viewing on LucasOilRacing.TV or MAVTV Motorsports Network:
1 – This is the third year that full programs will be held each of the first two nights. Not only will the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series/Lucas Oil MLRA feature winners collect $6,000 Thursday and Friday, those are vitally important as the finishing order will help determine the starting field for Saturday’s $30,000-to-win, 100-lap main event.
2 – A dozen drivers have won the Show-Me 100 more than once, but nobody has more victories than Scott Bloomquist (5). The 54-year-old dirt Late Model legend from Mooresburg, Tennessee, also is the only driver to have started all 25 previous Show-Me 100 features. All five of his wins came prior to 2010, when the race was held at West Plains Motor Speedway.
3 – No one has prospered more at Lucas Oil Speedway than Jimmy Owens of Newport, Tennessee. Owens has captured four of the eight Show-Me 100s held in Wheatland with wins in 2011, 2012, 2013 and the thriller in 2016 when he took command on lap 91 after Bloomquist lost a wheel and Bobby Pierce had a flat after the trio battled for the lead.
