Never underestimate a Missourian's ability to overachieve when given a challenge. One of the best examples of this I've ever seen is a recent discovery of video on TikTok that shows a Missouri celebration featuring a 500 gallon fireball.

Somehow I did not see this when it was originally shared over the 4th of July weekend. This video based on the hashtags included happened at Lucas Oil Speedway as they celebrated our nation's birthday in a way that only Missourians could possibly achieve. Blow up everything in sight. This is impressive. Make sure your sound is turned up.

Kaboom. When I saw Dakota Newman mention on TikTok that this was a 500 gallon fireball, I thought it might be TikTok exaggeration. Nope. It's real and it's been done before. There's an event called Sky Wars which should be required attendance for anyone who likes explosions and/or fireworks.

That's called SuperNuke for a reason. Other than it not being radioactive (I think), it looks like a mushroom cloud on fire. It blew up real good.

It shows that Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Missouri knows how to party. Note to self: pay attention to their 4th of July celebration plans for 2022. It will likely be worth a road trip. Boom.
