The 15th annual Belt Sander Drag Racing event was held at McCurdy Park’s Larry Frank Grandstand on the 4th of July. There were three entries plus five members of the audience who had their name drawn to enter the Stock Race event with a race ready sander supplied by the 4th of July Commission. There were four modified entries and all decorated sanders were judged for “Best of Show” prizes.

Total retail value of the prizes was $246. Gold, silver and bronze medals were also awarded for top three places in each category. The winners were:
