Belleville, KS — (July 9, 2014) — The 37th annual Belleville Midget Nationals on July 31-Aug. 2 at the Belleville High Banks is now three weeks away!

The United States Auto Club (USAC), along with The Belleville High Banks Race Committee will again serve as sanctioning organization .

The USAC Honda National Midget Dirt Series will again be the focal point of one of midget racing’s crown jewel events. Action kicks off on Thursday July 31 for the midgets with the always exciting qualifications around the 1/2-mile high banked clay oval, preliminary races and a 25-lap midget feature race. The USAC Silver Crown Series will hold a practice session during the evening, in preparation for Friday Nights events.

“The Hustle on the High Banks” on Friday Night Aug. 1, will feature a 50-lap feature for the USAC Silver Crown Cars.
