Belt Sander Racing
Gordon Field House - Main Floor
Belt sander racing is an all-American sport created in the late 1980's in Washington state. Inspired by the sport, this exhibit involves two customized wired electric belt sanders propelling themselves, under their own power, down a wooden enclosed track. This track was customize built by Engineering House members to ensure this fun sport can be enjoyed by people safely indoors. Watch as our belt sanders race down the tracks and predict which one will win. Learn about the physics behind how belt sanders propel themselves forward and even find out how to safely make your own belt sander racer!
