I recently found this site while whick seaching for double elimination rules...http://www.nebsra.org/winners.htm

NEBSRA = New England Belt Sander Racing Association...

And some people thought we were a little bit different and had too much time on our hands !

I wonder if "This Old House" is a sponsor ???

I did a quick search. This Old House did air a show with the belt sander race at the end of "The Nantucket House" program #1618

Here is some of the description...

"Finally, a belt-sander race at Bruce Killen's shop caps off the Nantucket project with accusations of equipment-tampering and race-rigging—"
