Event Preview: Power Tool Drag Racing

We’re finalizing the details but are working to bring Power Tool Drag Racing to MakerFaireLou on September 28th! If you’re unfamiliar with it, this event is a bracket-style competition where power tools such as circular saws, belt sanders, or weed whackers race against each other until one is crowned champion. Other prizes are given out for ‘most creative’ and ‘crowd favorite’, and depending on judge discretion, ‘ugliest’ or ‘best wreck’.

This year Louisville will be the first leg of a ‘Triple Crown’ of tool racing, with other legs in Columbus and Cincinnati. Here’s a preview of what to expect:

Why not build your own? Track and racer specs are available at the Ohio Tool Racing site.
