Lucas Oil Speedway Update

WHEATLAND, MO. (May 22, 2021) – Following an accumulation of rain over several days, Saturday night’s Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series program at Lucas Oil Speedway has been canceled due to wet conditions.

“We’ve had so much rain this week and with clouds and the possibility of more rain later in the day, we’ve decided to cancel,” Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Danny Lorton said. “We wanted to make the call early in the day so those driving several hours would know.”

The Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mods, as part of the Titans B-Mod Series, had been scheduled to run a $1,000-to-win main event.

“We’ll now turn our attention toward the Show-Me 100 coming up next week and get ready for that,” Lorton said.

Show-Me 100 next: The 29th annual Show-Me 100 Presented by ProtecttheHarvest.com is next on the schedule with action set Thursday through Saturday, featuring the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and Lucas Oil MLRA, at Lucas Oil Speedway.

Action kicks off on Thursday with the “Cowboy Classic” for Late Models headlining the program, with a $6,000-to-win, $600-to-start main event which also enables drivers to earn valuable points toward starting position into the night-night main event. The Cedar Creek Beef Jerky USRA Modifieds run a full program with the feature winner earning $750.

The “Tribute to Don and Billie Gibson” on Friday also will see a $6,000-to-win feature with more points earned for the starting lineup the next night. USRA Modifieds compete for a $750-to-win feature with more points collected toward the final-night main event.

The Saturday-night program includes B Mains, the Midwest Sheet Metal Show-Me Challenge and the 100-lap, $30,000-to-win main event along with a $1,500-to-win USRA Modified feature.

The final night will be even bigger after the recent announcement that three-time CMA and ACM Country Music Male Vocalist of the Year, Grammy Award winner and American Patriot Lee Greenwood will serve as Grand Marshall for the action on May 29.

Greenwood will sing the National Anthem during opening ceremonies and also his iconic song “God Bless the USA,” after driver introductions just prior to the green flag falling to begin the 100-lap feature.
