`Truthfully, a worried mind and Belleville, Kansas should not go together’

National magazine columnist says he ‘can’t wait to go back’ to Belleville Midget Nationals, NCK Free Fair

By Patrick Sullivan Reprinted by permission from Sprint Car and Midget Magazine, Mooresville NC

I love Belleville, and have from the first time I visited some 35 years ago. I love everything about it--the fair, the town, the people, and the racing. Yes, after the 2016 race, it seemed as if the Belleville Midget Nationals was in peril. There was talk that the modern midget had outgrown the facility, and that the same technology that produced blinding speed also created a huge cleavage between the haves and have-nots, resulting in dwindling car counts.

It was truly a great season

By Fred Arnold Telescope sports

It all boiled down to two big pass plays late in the game. Midway through the fourth quarter it looked as though Pike Valley was going to pull off the improbable: defeat number one rated Hanover at home and earn a trip to the Class 1A football finals in Newton. But two long touchdown passes by Hanover during the final 12 minutes, one going for 47 yards and another for 57 yards saw the host team rally to down Pike Valley 36-24. It was the second straight year that the Panthers saw their state title hopes vanish at the hands of the Wildcats. "We gave up two big pass plays late in the game and that really hurt us," PVHS Coach Don Melby said." "Hanover played very well and made plays when they needed them.
