Notes: The 2021 Show-Me 100 Presented by ProtecttheHarvest.com marks the 29th renewal of the crown jewel event which began in 1993 at West Plains Motor Speedway. … The event returns to its three-day format for the first time since 2018. … The 2019 event was cancelled by windstorm damage and the 2020 race was held in July as a one-day affair following its postponement because of the Covid-19 pandemic. … The three-day format introduced in 2016 featuring complete $6,000-to-win programs returns for the fourth time. … Drivers earn points during each of the two preliminary nights, which will help set the top 18 starters for Saturday’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 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. … Thirteen drivers have won the race. ... Scott Bloomquist’s six victories top the list. Bloomquist’s 2018 win was his first since the event moved to Wheatland from West Plains. … Bloomquist missed the 2020 race after switching national tours, snapping his streak of 26 consecutive feature starts. … Wendell Wallace has 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 four of the 10 Show-Me 100s contested at Wheatland. Owens has been among the top five six times and led laps in seven different features. … In six years of preliminary features (there were no preliminary features in 2020), Thursday’s winner has gone on to finish among the top four in Saturday’s finale each year. … Springfield’s Terry Phillips (1999) and Republic’s Payton Looney are the only home-state Show-Me 100 winners. … Country music star Lee Greenwood is the event's grand marshal and will seing the national anthem and "God Bless the U.S.A." in prerace ceremonies. ...
