We had the Speed Channel's Pinks All Out come to Seattle's Pacific Raceway this past weekend. There were some very fast and beautiful cars there. My friend, Jon, works for a race team, Total Performance Racing, here in Tacoma. Their race truck, sponsored by Indoor Gardening, ran a Pinks record fastest 6.61et at 221mph. This thing is so bad!
Here's a few images from Friday's time trials.

i like when they run the re-runs of the show when they did run for pinks.
the way the show played out, it was kind of like watching Texas Hold-Em poker on a dragstrip...
Some were holding back a little, some were hanging it all the way out.
Just like the old-school street drags that used to happen back behind Bell Helicopter in the "bottoms" in the 70s/80s... (dont know if they still race there or not, been 20yrs since I lived there).

That pickup is sweet. I want the Chevelle and I love the old Willys.

Dophoto, that car is a Dodge Challenger, you're thinking of the new Chev Camaro - different cars.
