Possible tornado damages Lucas Oil Speedway

Monday night storms ravaged Wheatland, Missouri, and caused significant damage to its local track: Lucas Oil Speedway. A possible tornado flipped over campers, relocated grandstands and tore through a new grandstand covering at its off-road course. The storm also caused structural damage to some of the track’s buildings. Of course, the storms didn’t just damage the racetrack: There are at least 11 reported injuries and damage throughout the area.

The extensive damage has caused Lucas Oil Speedway to postpone the upcoming “Show-Me 100.” According to a release from the track, tickets for the popular dirt late model race will be honored after the race is rescheduled. It’s hard to say when the race will take place or if this will be the only postponed event considering the significant damage to the track’s facilities.

Despite the damage, thankfully there are no reported fatalities as a result of the storms. Aside from the traditional TV coverage above, Twitter users posted videos and pictures of the damage to the track. You can check those out below.
