Pinks All Out - Norwalk, Ohio - Aug 2010
A great time, but got there at 11 am and was wiped out by 4:30. Final 16
wasn't until after dusk. Glad I went ...but I've seen faster and more interesting race cars at
other events. Lots of people because ...it's on TV, I guess.
PINKS ALL OUT FINALS 7-11-09 131 Dragway Martin, MI
PINKS! ALL OUT! was held at 131 Dragway in Martin, Mi Saturday July 11,
From Steve Kaminski, the Grand Rapids Press...
Bill Bennett lost to John Bodenstadt of Atwood, Ohio, and his 1996 Ford Mustang in a best-of-three
series of match races.
"Pinks All Out" officials said 464 drivers from as far as Colorado, Florida
and New York registered for Saturday's races.
About 430 of them competed. The show's staff studied the times from the two
qualifying sessions and found the group of 32 drivers closest in elapsed
The most competitive bracket was the 10.3- to 10.5-second range. Show host
Rich Christensen called all drivers to the top of the dragstrip and
announced the car numbers of the drivers who made the cut.
The drivers then squared of in single-elimination passes. The 16 winning
drivers advanced and reported to staging lanes, where in-car cameras were
installed and drivers were equipped with microphones.
Wayland's Roger Jackey, Middleville's Tony Whitehead and Scott Dronkers,
Allegan's Allen Bruischart and Portage's Louie Hall made the All Out 16.
Bruischart and Hall were eliminated in the round of 16, and Dronkers
defeated Whitehead in All Out 8.
"I almost crapped my pants," Dronkers said of learning he had been selected
for the top 32. "It's great. It's unbelievable. I watch the show all the
time, so this is a dream come true."
"I race a couple of times a month, and I have been doing it for 20-some
years, but this has been my best moment so far. This is going to be on TV.
How do you beat that?"
Jackey was beaten in the All Out 8 by Sturgis' Doug Hopkins, but he still
had a good time.
"I have been drag racing on and off for 20 years. I just do it for fun,"
Jackey said. "I try to watch the show as much as I can, and I thought if
they ever came to Martin, I would try to get in.
The show will air 8 p.m. Sept. 24 on Speed TV.
PINKS All Out Las Vegas BSR Interview
Brotherhood Of Street Racers Interview on PINKS All Out Las Vegas
If we do nothing than nothing happens. Everyone needs to get involved.
This is an e-mail from S. Pullin the Executive Producer of PINKS to the
mayor of Los Angeles:
Oct 21 2007
Recently we shot an episode of our hit show PINKS ALL OUT on SPEED Channel,
in Las Vegas. This particular episode had a very positive outcome for the
Los Angeles based Brotherhood of Street Racers. The theme of the show
centers around the fact that there are no tracks in Los Angeles for racers
and they either race on the street or must travel long distance to a track.
In this case several racers came to our show in Las Vegas to compete for
the $10,000 prize. In a stroke of pure serendipity, two of them made it
into the final out of 350 racers and Kenny Long a local racer won. Several
LA Based racers were interviewed and I have also put them into the show.
The message that people should race on the track and not the streets is
throughout the show from racers, Rich Christensen the host and others.
About eight references. As the show ends, the two Brotherhood members make
a passionate plea to get the Brotherhood Raceway track re-opened. All of
this makes for a very compelling and I think entertaining show that will be
viewed by millions of people.
This ALL OUT show will air on national television on Thanksgiving evening
in Prime Time after a 20 hour PINKS marathon on Speed Channel. We did this
last year on the same day for the ALL OUT premiere which received the
highest ratings in the history of the network for any one hour show. This
time we anticipate the audience could be larger, reaching over 3 million
people in one airing. It will then go into regular rotation like our other
shows which typically run about 100 times each per year and are distributed
widely all over South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, Jet Blue and
military networks around the world. We have now made 10 ALL OUT's which
were shot in front of very large audiences, up to 33,000 in Detroit making
us the second largest event in Drag racing. We are contracted to make 10
new shows next year around the country. Season Five of PINKS begins airing
I have no power to re-open the Brotherhood Raceway or any other track
around Los Angeles, I can only make television that draws attention to the
situation in this city and many others around the country. I have
personally been a supporter of the Brotherhood's efforts for several years.
It is a shameful situation that the city that created drag racing has
turned its back on this group of racers. There is obviously a serious lack
of political will and leadership in this city that I find particularly
disturbing. Tell me what else I can do to help this cause. Too many
innocent people are dying on our streets. I would like to personally
present a copy of this show to the Mayor of Los Angeles and encourage him
to watch the show, see what we are doing around the country with our show
that is having a tremendous impact to take racing off the streets and onto
the track. It is my understanding that he has the power to re-open the
Terminal Island track. If any of you could be instrumental in making this
meeting happen I would be very grateful.
Hopefully this will encourage the city leaders to take serious steps to
re-open Brotherhood Raceway.
