Notes: The 2018 Show-Me 100 Presented by ProtecttheHarvest.com marks the 26th renewal of the crown jewel event which began in 1993 at West Plains Motor Speedway. The event is co-sanctioned by the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and the Lucas Oil MLRA. … The three-day format introduced in 2016 featuring complete $6,000-to-win programs returns for the third time. Drivers earn points during each of the two preliminary nights, which will help set the top 18 starters for Saturday night's 100-lap finale. … Paying $6,000-to-win, Thursday’s Cowboy Classic headlines opening night, while honoring late Lucas Oil MLRA co-owner Allen “Cowboy” Chancellor. … Friday’s $6,000-to-win preliminary pays tribute to race founders Don and Billie Gibson, former owners of West Plains (Mo.) Motor Speedway. … The fifth annual Midwest Sheet Metal Show-Me Challenge for non-qualifiers pays $2,500-to-win; the winner can opt to pass on the purse and start the 100-lapper. … Twelve drivers have won the race, more than once; Scott Bloomquist’s five victories top the list, but he’s winless since the event moved to Wheatland from West Plains. … Bloomquist remains the lone driver to start every Show-Me 100; Wendell Wallace is next at 22 starts. … During the event’s West Plains era, Bloomquist not only won the Show-Me 100 five times but also finished among the top five in 13 out of 17 runnings. … Jimmy Owens has won half of the eight Show-Me 100s contested at Wheatland. Owens has been among the top five six times and led laps in six different features. … In five years since the Show-Me 100 introduced preliminary features, Thursday’s winner has gone on to finish among the top four in Saturday’s finale every time. … Springfield's Terry Phillips is the only Missouri driver to win the Show-Me, taking home honors in 1999. … USRA modifieds battle for $500-to-win features Thursday and Friday with $1,200-to-win on Saturday.
