WHEATLAND, Missouri – It’s time to start thinking about tickets for one of dirt-track racing’s crown-jewel events, the 26th annual Show-Me 100 Presented by ProtecttheHarvest.com May 24-26 at Lucas Oil Speedway.
Fans who purchased three-day passes for stadium-style reserved seats at last year’s Show-Me 100 have until Jan. 31 to renew those seats. Beginning on Feb. 1, three-day reserved seats and general admission tickets to the Show-Me 100 – plus other events during the 2018 season – will go on sale.
“We just want to make those fans who purchased reserved seats last year aware of the deadline, if they want those same seats again,” Lucas Oil Speedway admissions director Nichole McMillan said. “We expect a rush on tickets once they become available to the general public, so please contact us before the end of January if you want to renew.”
The three-day passes are $100 and offer the comfort of the high-back, stadium-style seats and prime viewing on the top few rows of the front straightaway. Fans can contact the speedway office at (417) 282-5984 or contact McMillan via email at Nichole@LucasOilSpeedway.com.
The 26th annual Show-Me 100 weekend features the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, co-sanctioned by the Lucas Oil MLRA, plus USRA Modifieds. Action kicks off on May 24 with the “Cowboy Classic” 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 “Tribute to Don and Billie Gibson” on May 25 also will see a $6,000-to-win feature with more points earned for the starting lineup the next night. Full USRA Modified programs also are scheduled each night.
