Want to race your belt sander? Download your registration form and read all the specs and rules by clicking here. There are two classes of Belt Sanders for racing: the modified class and the stock class. Modified class is for any belt sander that has been built from scratch or has had modifications made to the way it operates. For those of you that believe belt sanders come straight out of the box, the stock class is for you. This makes things nice and easy, but we do recommend taking your belt sander out of the box before race night to make sure it truly works!
