Sponsors buying up laps for Belleville 100


BELLEVILLE, Kan. (April 28) – Since announcing the exciting and entertaining format of the Belleville 100, many race fans have jumped on board to be a part of the 60-lap main event on July 3 at the Belleville High Banks.


Individuals, companies and families have purchased lap sponsorships for the Saturday evening finale.


How can you sponsor a lap?


The purchase of 10 tickets for the three-day blockbuster event is all that is required. The cost is $990 for 10 tickets. The name of your choice is applied to any of the remaining laps which you choose. The name of your choice will be printed in the Belleville 100 souvenir program, listed on the ‘Sponsors’ page of the Belleville 100 website and acknowledged on the sound system during the races.


Furthermore, one name will be drawn from the first 1,000 ticket orders with the lucky recipient becoming the owner of a brand new big screen high-definition television.


To view a list of available laps and see which supporters have already sponsored laps, visit the ‘Sponsors’ page at www.belleville100.com.


Saturday’s championship ‘A’ main will consist of 30 cars featuring a three-wide start on the nation’s oldest and fast half-mile dirt oval located in Belleville, Kan. The main event will see the race red-flagged on lap 30 for a period of 10 minutes. This pit stop will take place on the front stretch in front of the grandstands.


Fans attending the historical Belleville 100 will witness the potential frantic actions and calculated adjustments which will be required to carry on for the remaining 30 laps of what promises to be a grueling race. Teams will be allowed to make any adjustments, tire changes and add fuel during the stoppage, but cars may not enter their own pit areas during this period.


Will the polesitter choose to start at the rear of the field and go for a $100,000 top prize, or will he or she be content to go for the win and a $10,000 payday from the inside of row one?


The Belleville High Banks is perhaps the most demanding dirt track in the country in terms of expecting the most of driver and equipment. Certainly it is the fastest half-mile dirt track in the country and most certainly can boast its #1 ranking in historical longevity.


While many aspects of the automobile and auto racing have changed since Belleville’s first auto race in 1910, two things haven’t changed: the test of the machine and the endurance of the driver.


In July 2010, machine and driver will be tested in a contest never before witnessed at “The World’s Fastest Half-Mile Dirt Track” or anywhere in the Great Plains as the celebration of 100 years of auto racing in Belleville and the advancement of the motor car will take place. Plan now to be a part of auto racing history by attending the Belleville 100 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, July 2-4.


Tickets can be purchased by calling 402-761-3676 or by checking out the ‘Tickets’ section at www.belleville100.com on the World Wide Web. Entry forms, rules and additional information can also be found on the Official Website of the Belleville 100.
