Some real good freinds and I attended the SPEED channel's "PINKS All-out" event at the Texas Motorplex September 2nd which was a pilot being filmed all day for a new series. It was $10 to race with 2 passes guaranteed since there was an expected 300 racers to attend. There were 16 cars to be chosen with the winner of each race recieving $1,000 cash and the overall winner to collect $10,000.
We arrived at the speedway at 7:15
AM to find a very long line of real nice street cars and intense trailer
cars park on the side of the highway and finally got through the gates
by 8:45 AM. I must say this, I have never seen so many well built
beautiful cars gathered at a track together. Everything from a fully
blacked out twin turbo Viper to a couple twin turbo Vettes to a...
well, the list can go on and on! Even our Turbo Dodge internet buddy,
Wallace (A.K.A. Mopar2ya), drove up from Kansas with his Spirit R/T
running a 114 MPH in 14 sec due to a large traction issue. Apparently,
the engine and turbo in that ride was not anything to mock.
At first, I as well as others did
not understand the premise of the show since this was the first time,
but PNKS "ALL OUT" is a great show to watch and this is
an excellent event for family and friends to attend with alot of vendor
booths featuring Brodix heads and many more play toys to look at.
Thanks to SPEED Channel for providing all it's great programming for
us crazy gear heads. And thanks to Rich for the arm drop since it
was the first time I got to experience what my Dad told me about all
