BELLEVILLE, Kan. (Nov. 4) – The ticket window has swung open and race fans can now purchase their seat for the Belleville 100 and be a part of history at a one-of-a-kind event at a one-of-a-kind venue.


Race fans and competitors alike are already looking forward to next year when the nation’s top Modified drivers on dirt converge on the famed Belleville High Banks for the inaugural running of the Belleville 100.


A century in the making, the three-day celebration of speed and skill will be held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, July 2-4, 2010, at the “World’s Fastest Half-Mile Dirt Track.”


Tickets for next year's blockbuster event officially went on sale Sunday, and judging from the response from both competitors and fans since the format of the event was revealed in September, Belleville 100 officials expect a lot of seats to be “gobbled up” prior to the Thanksgiving holiday.


Next year on Friday, July 2, the Modifieds take on the Belleville High Banks with heat races, “B” mains and a 40-lap “A” main carrying a $5,000 top prize and $500 to start. The top-10 finishers will be locked into Saturday night’s thrilling finale.


Saturday, July 3, will feature another round of qualifying events, followed by a 15-lap non-qualifiers “A” main with drivers racing for $2,000 to win and $300 to start. The thrilling conclusion will be the 60-lap championship “A” main with 30 cars starting three-wide on the big half-mile clay oval with $10,000 earmarked for the winner and a minimum of $1,000 for each of the starters.


But that’s not all ... the pole sitter for Saturday’s championship ”A” main will have the option of starting dead last in the field and a whopping $100,000 paycheck if he/she can win from the 30th starting position.


Dozens of contingency prizes will also be awarded during the event, plus a Halfway Leader Award, Hard Charger Award, Hard Luck Award and more. Attendees can also look forward to a gigantic fireworks display to round out the Independence Day celebration.


Sunday, July 4, will include a dazzling auto thrill show and other entertainment suitable for a 100-year celebration of auto racing, including the Pig 100 — a not-so-light-hearted special event featuring real live pigs and a shot at $500 for one lucky participant. The Sunday date is also being held in reserve as a rain date for Friday or Saturday.


Only reserved seat tickets will be offered for the Belleville 100. Tickets are $33 per night in lots of three nights (single day tickets are not available). Family/Group ticket packages will also be available to the first 60 groups that order. Fans and/or businesses that purchase at least 10 tickets will be named a lap sponsor for Saturday’s 60-lapper, be listed in the souvenir program, receive mentions by the p.a. announcer and also get VIP access to drivers and infield prior to Saturday’s finale.


As if that wasn't enough, one name will be drawn from the first 1,000 ticket buyers to win a new high-definition big screen television.


Belleville 100 tickets make a nice Christmas gift or stocking stuffer for that racing friend or family member.
