Power Tool Drag Racing: Columbus, Ohio

drag_racing.jpgIf you live in Columbus, Ohio, or even if you live within a thousand miles of Columbus, Ohio, you should go to the Power Tool Drag Races this weekend. They're being held at the Columbus Idea Foundry from 4 to 6. If you want to enter your own dragster, you still have time because registration ends this Friday. If you don't have the time, but want to enter next year, they're holding a workshop on how to make your own tools into drag racers. How cool is that?

This is the first annual Columbus race and we hope that all of you who are able to go make it out for the event. It looks like a lot of fun, and the more people who show, the better the chance of it becoming an institution. Just think, someday you can tell your grandkids, "I was at the very first Columbus Power Tool Drag Race..."

Prizes for the event are being supplied by the great Ohio Power Tool and other sponsors include C.H. Hanson and Skil. There is more information on the Drag Races at the official site (http://www.powertooldragracescolumbus.com/).

In the spirit of the races, we'll send a tool to the first person who correctly identifies the movie that the above image came from. Just leave it in the comments.

I love that the correct answer came in at 9:37 am. Morning coffee and a little Death Race 2000. It's good to know that the Tool Snob readership is not only more intelligent than the average bird, but that they're also aware of the high points of our cultural experience. Randy, I'll be in touch to get your address to send something on.

Jay, glad you liked the post. It's funny, but Jason Statham was in the remake of Death Race 2000. So you're sort of right too. I'd consider sending you something, but you practically live in a tool superstore.

Looks like Death Race 2000 to me (the original). Having said that I haven't seen the movie in near 30 years so I may well be wrong.

Awesome Post, it shaping up to be a fun event and I’ll send you some pictures after the race. I also think we should officially change the store name to “The Great Ohio Power Tool”. No clue what movie that’s from but if Jason Statham was acting in the 70’s it looks like something he would of made, along with 4 sequels.
