Fireman's Angell Park
Sun Prairie, WI

Marcus | Brett | Dylan

Angell Park is owned by the fire department. They also have a midget car race every year. A midget car is just like a regular car except just littler, and it doesn't have any windows. They usually don't crash, but they do sometimes. Bob said they cost about $30,000. A lot of famous people come to drive in the cars, like Bob Marley. He was a pro racer for a team. - Marcus

At Angell Park in Sun Prairie there's a racetrack where they race midget cars. We met the owner of the place. He said some of the best Nascar racers have raced in midget cars at Angell Park. I remember he said that both Jeff Jordan and Tony Stewart have raced there. At Angell Park they also have the midget car hall of fame. They have little gold plates all over the wall. They all have a name and picture carved into them. The owner said that midget cars cost a lot of money, usually about $4,000. There is another kind of car called a quarter midget car that doesn't cost that much.

Angell Park is owned by the firemen in Belleville. The hall of fame goes back to 1984. The park was donated to the firemen in 1982. People raced horses in Angell Park in 1947, before it was donated to the firemen. Sometimes they have receptions upstairs in the bar. --Dylan
