WHEATLAND, MO. (May 21, 2022) - Due to heavy rain that already has fallen overnight and more in the forecast, Saturday night's Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series program at Lucas Oil Speedway has been canceled.

"We've already had a considerable amount of rain and the forecast throughout the rest of the day and into the evening is calling for more rain and cool temperatures," Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Danny Lorton said. "We'll now turn our attention to the Show-Me 100 and see everyone next week."

The next Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series program is set for Saturday, June 11 as KOLR Presents $5 Night at the Races. Grandstand prices will be $5 for all adults, seniors and youth. Kids 5 and under as always are free.

Meanwhile, the 30th annual Lucas Oil Show-Me 100-presented by
ProtectTheHarvest.com is set for next Thursday through Saturday. This crown jewel event for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and the Lucas Oil MLRA will pay a record $50,000 to the final-night winner out of a total purse over the three days of over $233,000 - a record total purse for the event.

The Lucas Oil Show-Me 100-presented by ProtectTheHarvest.com kicks off on Thursday with the "Cowboy Classic" for Late Models headlining the program, with a $6,000-to-win main event which also enables drivers to earn valuable points toward starting position into the Saturday-night main event.

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 for the Show-Me 100 main event on Saturday night.

The Cedar Creek Beef Jerky USRA Modifieds will run full programs each night, also earning points the first two nights toward the Saturday feature that will pay $1,500 to win.

The Saturday program will include B-Mains for the MLRA/LOLMDS cars that have not transferred into the feature event through a heat race. Following the B-Mains, there will be the 20-Lap Midwest Sheet Metal Show-Me Challenge for drivers that did not transfer into the 100-Lap feature event through the B-mains.

The winner of the Midwest Sheet Metal Show-Me Challenge will earn $2,500 or can forfeit the winner's purse and elect to start last in the Show-Me 100 feature event.

Big Show-Me 100 Pre-Race: The Nutrien Ag Solutions Pre-Race Ceremonies-presented by Missouri Division of Tourism will include introducing the Grand Marshal of the 30th annual Show-Me 100, country music star and RCA recording artist, Aaron Tippin.

As part of the opening ceremonies the Clinton High School Army JROTC color guard presents the colors as Tippin leads the spectator audience in the Pledge of Allegiance. Danny Terrell, an up-and-coming local country music artist will sing the National Anthem.

During the National Anthem the All Veterans Group Sky Dive Team-presented by the Missouri Division of Tourism will display the American Flag as they precisely land on track for the fans.
