    'Pinks All Out' production halted
    ThatsRacin.com Report

    Tuesday, Dec. 07, 2010
    Charlotte-based Speed has shelved the "Pinks All Out" series, it was announced Tuesday.
    Production of new episodes of the grassroots drag racing program has been put on hold. There have been 43 episodes since the program's first, at the Texas Motorplex in 2006. "Pinks All Out" and "Pinks All Outtakes" were spun off from the original "Pinks," which began on Speed in 2005.
    Noting the program's success, Hunter Nickell, the Speed president, voiced his appreciation to fans, competitors, track managers, the producers and others.
    "However, after visiting 34 drag strips in four seasons of production ... the network feels the current show model needs further evaluation to determine what new direction we want to take the property,” Nickell said.
    Nickell said development would continue on programming with a focus on grassroots racing.

    Now if Speed would just get on the ball, and get rid of that game show where you guess at a car's quarter mile time, and the closest one gets points, and eventually money, get rid of Pimp My Ride (both because it is a bad show, and because the stuff they do is not anything a sane person would do to thier car) they would have done themselves (and us) a great deal of good.

    They should just add programs that concentrate on fixing and restoring cars; enough with the all NASCAR, all the time programming. Things like Two Guys Garage, the show they used to have on the cars of the muscle car era, and some of the shows like the ones that are on Spike's Powerblock. Maybe add in a couple of motorcycle shows like they used to have on Tuesdays ("Two Wheel Tuesdays"). Maybe some new episodes of My Classic Car, American Thunder, a new motorcycle show that concentrates on standard and sport bikes (not stunt riding). Shows that walk you through the history of the major car brands (GM/Ford/Chrysler/Jaguar0 and I don't mean "Design to Win' (which only concentrated on race winning, out of everybody's price range, cars).
