Pimp Your Power Tool for Drag Racing

There's still time to get your MAKE on and create a vehicle for the Power Tool Drag Races. Races will be held Saturday June 28 in Georgetown. The races are part of Artopia, an annual event for innovative art and emerging talent.

The Power Tool Drag Races races are organized by Hazard Factory. Motto: Don't run with scissors, commute.
