High Banks Hall of Fame and National Midget Auto Racing Museum

Midget auto racing is a specialized sport and Belleville is one of its shrines, home to the Belleville Midget Nationals at what the town claims is the "fastest half-mile dirt track in the world." By the way, "midget" refers to the size of the cars, not the drivers. [Luke Mahin, 05/24/2011]
