Guy Bucasas will call belt-sander races

Accuride and the Belt Sander Racing Association secured Guy Bucasas as the event announcer for the upcoming National Championship Belt Sander Races set for July 25 at the AWFS fair in Las Vegas.

The 2013 event marks the third time Bucasas will act as the announcer for the BSRA national championships, where he has become a crowd favorite known for his running commentary and lively banter. In addition to the national championships, Bucasas has announced several BSRA regional races held at Accuride distributor locations along the west coast.

“I have a lot of fun at these events,” Bucasas said in a statement. “And these races are so much more awesome in person — it’s like a circus — how could you not have fun? I even race my own sander. I like to tell people, if you want to see speed, action, and the epitome of belt-sander racing — do not look at my sander. Look at the one next to mine.”

The BSRA National Championship Races feature speed-obsessed competitors who race stock and modified-belt sanders down a 75-foot wooden track. The fastest and best-dressed sanders take home trophies and special awards presented by Accuride.

This year, the event will include a new competition, the Crash & Smash Demolition Derby. Participants with sacrificial sanders can register for the head-on “Crash” segment or the “Smash” segment, where sanders will careen into a post specially designed to cause sanders to break apart. Contestants will earn prizes, with the most spectacular crash taking home a trophy.
