Persistent rain cancels Thursday action at Show-Me 100, with Gibson Tribute set for Friday night

WHEATLAND, MO. (May 26, 2022) – Thursday’s 9th Annual Cowboy Classic honoring the late Allen “Cowboy” Chancellor, longtime MLRA Owner/Promoter, has been canceled due to persistent morning showers that are forecast to last late into the evening.

The Friday-night portion of the Show-Me 100 Presented by ProtecttheHarvest.com, the Tribute to Don and Billie Gibson, as well as Saturday’s record $50,000-to-win program at Lucas Oil Speedway remains as scheduled.

The action on Friday will pay tribute to Don and Billie Gibson, former promoters of West Plains Motor Speedway and founders of the Show-Me 100. The activities will include a complete program of: Allstar Performance Time Trials, heat races, B-Mains and a 40-lap, $6,000-to-win, $600-to-start main event.

Drivers earn points on Friday for entering the event and attempting to compete, earning the fastest qualifying time in their group and for where they finish in the B-Main or A-Main; those points combined will determine the lineups for Saturday night’s $50,000-to-win, $2,000-to-start finale and B-Mains.

The Cedar Creek Beef Jerky USRA Modifieds will be featured as the support class both nights. Their activities on Friday will feature a complete program of: Heat races, B-Mains and a 20-lap, $750-to-win main event.
