Have you heard of Pinks? It has apparently become the most watched weekly series on SPEED. Pinks has been called “the hottest car show on Television” with over 2 million visitors each week.
Pinks sets up Drag Racing matches in the setting of a 1950’s drag race. Contestants drag race to win the best 3 out of 5 races. The loser gets the “pink” slip. They’re casting for season four of the program now – so if you’d like to find out if you are the best drag racer in a competition go to the site and sign up. Maybe they’ll pick you for an episode.
If you love watching drag racing check out the Pinks Marathon on www.speedtv.com Nov 23, 2006. I haven’t seen the show yet but it sounds like an interesting concept. If you are a drag racing fan you should check it out.
Here’s my ride. Sorry it’s a bit dark, I took the video at 5 p.m. and it starts to get dark here at that time.
Yeah, it’s just a Ford Contour with major muffler and manifold problems. It’s not all that fast but with the muffler problem it certainly sounds like a drag racing car.
Here’s another video featuring our Contour. Chris and I got to drive on the Molson Indy race track here in Toronto when they were setting it up. This video isn’t very good because I took it with my new cell phone and then mucked up the editing. But you’ll get the idea if you watch it. Oh and I sound like I’m snapping at Chris at the beginning of the video- I wasn’t. He’d just told me to turn the camera on and I already had, my voice sounds loud and tinny since it was so close to the microphone around that time.
