Race museum hopes highway opening, vintage nationals, new book boost numbers

By Deb Hadachek

Don McChesney expects 80 to 100 classic race cars in Belleville in late July for the semiannual Vintage Nationals, an event he hopes breathes new interest into the Belleville High Banks Hall of Fame/National Midget Auto Racing Museum, US81 and 12th ST.

The Belleville Vintage Nationals will run July 28-29, in conjunction with the Colorado Vintage Oval Racers and the Kansas Antique Racers Invite. The event invites vintage open wheel cars pre-1990 to exhibit and take a lap on the famous Belleville High Banks half-mile dirt track.
