AWFS: National Championship Belt Sander Races

Santa Fe Springs, CA--Racers from all over the country are preparing for full-throttle fun at the 2011 National Championship Belt Sander Races set for July 21, 2011 at the AWFS®Fair in Las Vegas, Nevada. Coordinated by the Belt Sander Racing Association (BSRA), Accuride International, and the AWFS®Fair committee, the event will take place at 4:30 p.m. in the convention center’s Central Hall, booth #10300.

Competitors will vie for awards on a 75-foot wooden track complete with Christmas-tree starting signals. Accuride will present first, second, and third place awards, as well as a special Judge’s Award and recognition for the Best Design Theme.

“The competition is bound to be fierce, which makes the event a lot of fun. So pack your speediest track-burning sander and come get in on the action.” says BSRA president and Accuride Regional Sales Manager Jamie Goodwin. “There’s a limit to the number of racers, so be sure to reserve your spot at the starting line right away.”

The Belt Sander Races are one of the show’s most popular events, drawing close to a thousand people packing the stands to see the grit—and sometimes sanders—fly off the track.

The AWFS®Fair in Las Vegas combines the largest exhibition of woodworking hardware and machinery, board and panel products, upholstery material, wood components, supplies, services, and new technologies in North America with networking opportunities and a professional educational conference.
