Randy Belding of Pella is one of 20 finalists in Walmart’s “Get on the Shelf” contest. Belding’s story began ten years ago, while putting together a toy racetrack for his son Jay. Belding says they had a lot more fun figuring out how to make it work than actually watching the car go through the loops, which led him to create, Blu Track, a design your own track system, offering an infinite number of outcomes for designers. Belding is currently one of four finalists in the “Made in the U.S.A.” category for the contest. The final winner of Walmart’s competition will have their product sold on the Walmart website, and have extra marketing support.
