- Points format for USRA Modifieds, Order of Events set for Show-Me 100 weekend at Lucas Oil Speedway
WHEATLAND, MO. (May 24, 2022) - While the Late Models take center stage for the 30th annual Show-Me 100 Presented by ProtecttheHarvest.com, the Cedar Creek Beef Jerky USRA Modifieds also will be running for prestige and extra cash this weekend. The format for the Modified portion of the program has been announced and, like the Late Models, the Modified drivers will collect points based upon their finishes in Thursday and Friday programs that will lock in the first 16 starting positions in Saturday's feature. Here is a breakdown of how the points-earned formula will work Thursday and Friday for the Modifieds: A-Main points awarded as follows: 1st 200 points, 2nd 180, 3rd 170, 4th 160, 5th 155, 6th 150, 7th 145, 8th 140, 9th 135, 10th 130, 11th 115, 14th 110, 15th 105, 16th 100, 17th 95, 18th 90, 19th 85, 20th 80, 21st-through-24th 75. To receive A-main points, drivers must start the event. B-Main points awarded as follows to the B-Main non-transfers: 1st non-transfer 70, 2nd 65, 3rd 60, 4th 55, 5th 50, 6th 45, 7th 40, 8th 35, 9th 30, 10th-through-26th 25. To receive B-main points, drivers must start the event. The starting grid for the 30-lap USRA Modified feature on Saturday will see the most-combined points starting on the pole, the second most outside of row one and etc., through the 16th-most points starting 16th. Ties in overall points will be broken: First by highest overall individual points night total for each tied driver and second highest overall individual finish for each tied driver. All combined points for "non-transferring" drivers will be split into B-Mains on Saturday based on combined points. The top four from each of the 12-lap B-Mains will transfer to the A-Main. Lap counts for Thursday and Friday will be 8 laps for heats with the top 16 in passing points transferring to the A-Main; B-mains will be 12 laps with top four transferring to A-main and 20 laps for the A-mains on Thursday and Friday. All three nights of the event also will see the Modified drivers earning both USRA National and Lucas Oil Speedway track points. Each driver receives 50 "participant points" as long as the driver competes in at least a heat race or a B-main.

Spectator gates will open at 5:00 P.M. with racing at 7:00. PAS 5-22-21=91r Win=1674-3.jpg Brody Roa taking a swig of the victory chocolate milk after winning last year's "Salute to Indy." Doug Allen photo. The "Salute to Indy," which is a tip of the hat to the Indianapolis 500, dates to 1948 when Dempsey Wilson captured the inaugural running of the now prestigious race. From 1948 through 1990, the race was contested in all but five years. After legendary Ascot Park closed in 1990, it was put on ice until The PAS hosted it in 1996. Since its rebirth in the Inland Empire, the famed race has taken place each year except for 2008 when it was canceled by rain, and 2020 when it was wiped out by COVID. While this weekend's event comes 74-years after the race was initially held, it will be the 71st running. You may be wondering how that can be as the race did not take place 12-times since its introduction. The answer is a simple one. Some years in the 1970s and 1980s, Ascot held multiple races over Memorial Day weekend and each race was called the "Salute to Indy". In 1971, 1978, 1981, 1982, and 1983, there were two "Salute to Indy" races. In 1980, three editions of the race took place on the revered grounds located at 190th and Vermont in Gardena, California. Over the years, National Sprint Car Hall of Famers Dean Thompson and Bubby Jones recorded the most "Salute to Indy" wins with five victories each. However, all of Thompson's wins came in years when the race was held multiple times. In addition, three of Jones's five triumphs took place when the race was held more than one time per year. Only two drivers have won the race four times. One is National Sprint Car Hall of Famer Billy Wilkerson and the other is nine-time USAC/CRA Sprint Car champion Damion Gardner of Concord, California. Unlike Thompson and Jones, Wilkerson and Gardner's triumphs all came when the race was only run one time per year. Wilkerson's victories came at Ascot in 1968, 69,' 72' and 73.' Gardner's triumphs came in 2003, 04,' 14,' and 17' and all were at The PAS. A win on Saturday by Gardner would tie him with Thompson and Jones for the most wins in "Salute to Indy" history. In addition to Gardner, three other past winners of the "Salute to Indy" will be in action on Saturday. One is defending race champion Brody Roa of Garden Grove, California. Besides Gardner and his arch-rival Roa, two other past winners, Yorba Linda's Matt Mitchell, and "the Big Game Hunter," Austin Williams, of Corona, California, will be racing on Saturday. Mitchell sipped the traditional chocolate milk that PAS winners get at the "Salute to Indy," in 2011 and 2013. Williams did likewise when he crossed the finish line first in 2016 and 2018. Saturday will be the 25th edition of the "Salute to Indy" at The PAS. As mentioned earlier, it was not held in 2008 due to rain, and in 2020 when COVID intervened. Other years in the race's long history that it did not take place were 1950, 1951, 1960, 1965, 1970, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, and 1995. Saturday's show will include qualifying, 10-lap heat races, a 12-lap B Main event, and a 30-lap A Main for the USAC/CRA drivers. The IMCA Modifieds will contest heat races, a B Main if needed, and a 20-lap main event. The Senior Sprint Cars, for drivers 40-years-old and over, will contest an eight-lap heat race and a 20-lap main event. Adult tickets for Saturday's "Salute to Indy," are $30.00. Seniors 65 and over get in for $25.00. For kids 6-12, it is just $5.00. Children 5 and under are free. Parking on the fairgrounds is $10.00.
