MLRAShow-Me 100Lucas Oil Speedway

Wheatland, Missouri - May 20, 2014 - The Inaugural Cowboy Classic will kick off a huge weekend of racing this Memorial Day weekend at Lucas Oil Speedway. The opener for the 22nd Annual Lucas Oil Show Me 100 presented by ProtectTheHarvest.com will see the nation's best drivers contend for a $5,045 top prize, custom trophy and $200 merchandise certificate from PFI Western Store in Springfield, Missouri.

Last year Thursday night's kick-off event was won by Jimmy Owens, who also went on to capture his third straight Show Me 100 title two nights later. A chassis change for Owens this year will make the Thursday night program that much more important, as he looks to become the first driver to ever win four Show Me 100's in a row. His feat of three straight is matched only by five time race winner Scott Bloomquist, who reeled off consecutive wins from 2003-2005.

However, with the nation's best on hand there will certainly be no give me's. Haulers and teams from across the country have already started to ascend on the Diamond of Dirt Tracks for what will certainly be a weekend to remember.

Chad Simpson, on the heels of seven top five finishes in the first eight Lucas Oil MLRA shows, leads the standings. Al Humphrey Racing's Travis Dickes has been spot on most of the young season and sits second. Terry Phillips is just a few markers back of Dickes in third. Jeremy Payne and John Anderson round out the top five, in the latest series points rundown. Parity has been plentiful early on, as no driver has been a repeat winner yet this season.
