About This Event

Join us for two days of State Championship BBQ and Racing in Wheatland, MO!

Championship barbecue will be on the schedule along with championship racing in just a few weeks at Lucas Oil Speedway.

The inaugural Red White Blue & Que Presented by Lucas Oil Speedway is set for July 8-9. The Kansas City Barbecue Society-sanctioned competition will bring some of the nation’s top barbecue teams to south-central Missouri - and raise funds for a worthy cause.

In conjunction with the July 8 Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series program - Veterans & Military Appreciation Night Presented by the Springfield News-Leader Media Group - proceeds from the Red White Blue & Que will go to The Warriors Journey. An online resource for military warriors and their families, visit for more information on the organization and the ways it offers help to military veterans and their families.

All veterans and active military, with ID, will be admitted free to the races. And fans attending the July 8 program will have the opportunity to sample barbecue from the competing teams on the Lucas Oil Speedway midway for $5, from 5-7 p.m., and vote for their favorite to determine “People’s Choice” winner.

The barbecue teams will compete in the KCBS competition on July 9 with a prize fund of $5,000 on the line. Red White Blue & Que is a points event and a qualifying event for the American Royal World Championships and Jack Daniels Invitational, two of barbecue’s majors later in the year.

Team entry spots remain available. For more information on Red White Blue & Que or to download an entry form visit Contest organizer Michelle Higgins can be reached at or by calling (417) 682-1568.

Red White Blue & Que also a part of the Ozarks BBQ Alliance Chase, a five-competition series with a $2,000 prize fund up for grabs for teams entering at least three events. It began earlier this year at Smoke on the Border in Gravette, Ark., and continues with the Willard Freedom Feast (June 23-24), Red White Blue & Que, Rockin’ Apples in Appleton City (Aug. 23-24) and Boats and Bones in Kimberling City, Mo. (Sept. 16-17).

All veterans and military personnel will be admitted free to the July 8 races.
