SPEED Places PINKS All Out Production on Hiatus SPEED announces today that grassroots drag racing television show, PINKS All Out, is taking a hiatus from producing new episodes for 2011.
The most recent episode shot at Firebird International Raceway, which premieres in February, represents the 43rd produced since its inception at the Texas Motorplex during Labor Day Weekend of 2006. The PINKS property has been on SPEED since July of 2005, starting with PINKS, and extending to PINKS All Out and PINKS All Outtakes.
“PINKS All Out has been one of the most successful television shows in network history,” said Hunter Nickell, SPEED President. “SPEED would like to thank all the dedicated fans, grassroots racers, track management, the on-air team, Pullin Television and its production crew, SPEED affiliates and all the show’s sponsors over the past four seasons for their support - we couldn’t be more thankful to everyone who’s been associated with the show.
“However, after visiting 34 drag strips in four seasons of production throughout the United States, the network feels the current show model needs further evaluation to determine what new direction we want to take the property,” Nickell continued. “The PINKS brand has equity within the drag racing community – especially at the grassroots level. It’s our hope to continue developing quality grassroots motor sports programming out of what everyone has built with PINKS. It’s a process we are currently undertaking.”
