The need for speed helped us decide the third stop for our 'One of a Kind' Kansas road trip. We're in Belleville, a town of about 2,000 people. It's located in Republic County, not far from the Nebraska boarder.
On Facebook, Jenny 'Ahlvers' Russell posted Belleville is an awesome and historic place. It's home to the World's Fastest Half Mile Dirt Track which has hosted racing giants before they became famous. She went on to tell us about the Boyer Gallery of Animated Carvings and the the resurgence of downtown. Belleville has a town square with a historic courthouse and several small businesses.
Jenn, Mike and Merril arrived in town headed straight to the Highbanks Hall of Fame National Midget Auto Racing Museum. That's where the group tried on racing suits and saw race cars used on the dirt track. They're also visiting the historic Blair Theatre, which is operated by volunteers.
Tune in to our 4, 5, 6, 9 and 10 newscasts for coverage from Belleville. Also, head to our Facebook page and 'like' us if you like what we're doing. You can also chime in about your town and help us decide where to visit the rest of the week.
