Maker Faire: Power tool drag racing

Make 632
Power Tool Drag Races makes it Maker Faire debut this weekend. There will be blown big-block belt sanders, nitro-burning funny saws, wheel-standing weed wackers along with big-time announcers. Come join the fun by entering your own custom power-tool dragster. You need to register before the event to enter. Follow the “builder’s database” link at

Saturday are the time trials. You will be assured at least 2 runs on Saturday. The goal is to get the best track time in your class. The top racers from each class will advance to Sunday, where we will have the usual formal tree eliminations. See for race rules and classes.

If you can’t enter, be sure to come sit in the stands and enjoy the show. May the best mod win!
