    Steve Peace, in his third year of competition at the Power Tool Drag Races, fiddles with his racer, "Lady of St. Ludicrous." The tool is a Black & Decker aluminum sander fashioned with a nun puppet and a bong pipe. The racer lost two of its three races, but Peace said he "crushed some hapless sucker" in the third race. Peace, a marketing consultant in San Francisco, said, "Everyone in this city is simply trying to amuse themselves and we do this."
