What Is Pinks All Out All About?
For HPP readers unfamiliar with the television show, SPEED's PINKS All Out is a "reality" cable TV show that offers participants-some of whom have never drag raced a car before-the opportunity to be on a TV episode and win up to $25,000 in cash and prizes. Entries go through a first come, first serve registration process (or lottery selection) ushered by each host facility months prior to the individual episode shoot. According to SPEED, "As many as 6,000 racers have vied for the 500 spots offered in each episode."
The show's format involves narrowing the 500 qualifiers down to fields of 32 or 16 finalists, who are selected via a unique process. The entire field is asked to run 'All Out,' where multiple fields of closely grouped cars with similar elapsed times are selected. The group of cars the technical crew feels would comprise the best television show and closest racing is what makes up the final grouping for the show.
PINKS All Out first aired Thanksgiving Day 2006 to an estimated 2.5 million premiere week viewers on SPEED and is now shooting its fifth season. For further information, visit the PINKS All Out official website at www.speed.com/programs/pinks/.
Congratulations to Pontiac racer Doug Kistler of Emmaus, Pennsylvania, with an '84 Trans Am, who made the Top 16 at the Virginia Motorsports Park edition of PINKS All Out. The episode was scheduled to air in late August or early September 2010. Check SPEED for exact dates and times.
