Highbanks Hall of Fame
National Midget Auto Racing Museum

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The museum, with its arched facade to replicate the limestone grandstand at the Belleville High Banks, includes a gift shop and research area, but most of the space is dedicated to displays.  The building was constructed to allow for future expansion.

Most members of the High Banks Hall of Fame committee are people passionate about racing, and convinced Belleville's heritage of racing should be preserved. The High Banks has attracted the top names in auto racing throughout the last century.

Meetings are held at 7:30 PM the third Monday of every month at the new museum, and open to anyone interested in helping with the project.

The "Belleville High Banks" has brought exciting races to the "Crossroads of America" for over a century.   This track, famed as the "fastest 1/2 mile dirt track in the world," has brought the top drivers from all around the world to compete.  To recognize the long lasting tradition and prestige of various racing events held at the track, the "High Banks Hall of Fame and National Midget Auto Racing Museum" was built. We strive to honor and remember racing personalities, memorabilia, and display race cars that influenced the historic racing community.

The museum is located in the heart of North Central Kansas where the long lasting racing tradition continues each July.  The "Belleville Midget Nationals" continues each summer as one of the nations biggest and richest midget races in the country.  Past, current and future racing stars use the "Belleville Midget Nationals" as a stepping stone to our nations top racing circuits like the Sprint Cup and the IRL.  The museum features a "National Midget Auto Racing Museum" to honor the greatest midget drivers in racing history.  The museum will pay tribute to the famous track and the legends that made it what it is today.

We'd like to know what you think about our museum and web site. Please e-mail  your comments and suggestions  to highbanksmuseum@nckcn.com,   so we can share your thoughts with our           committee members and other visitors. We will get back to you if you have any questions. We appreciate your feedback. Thank you for visiting!
