SANTE FE SPRINGS, CALIF. ?Accuride International and the Belt Sander Racing Association (BSRA) are planning for full-throttle fun at a belt sander race set for September 15, 2011, at the McKillican Vancouver Grand Event. The planned festivities will be held from 1 pm to 4 pm at 20233-100A Avenue, Langley, British Columbia. The Vancouver Grand Event will celebrate the grand opening of McKillican’s new showroom; and, will feature representatives from a host of key suppliers who will answer questions and offer expert advice.

Meanwhile, race entrants will vie for trophies with souped-up and stock belt sanders designed to roar down a 75-foot wooden track. Complete with Christmas-tree starting signals, the sawdust—and sanders—really flies on this track, as racers aggressively compete for the fastest times. In addition to first, second, and third place trophies, a special Judge’s Award will be presented. 
Racers are encouraged to register right away to reserve a space in the competition. To learn more about the BSRA, or to register for the event, visit For more information about the McKillican Vancouver Grand Event, contact Dean Favaro by e-mail at
