I don't have but a few pics. Tom will have a lot.
he is flying home today.

The production company had a helicopter, a cable camera that ran the length of the track and could travel at 100mph.
64 hand held, and 2 jibbs cranes, 24 station cameras.

They picked 64 cars.
They ran in pairs down to 32
The 32 ran in 4's down to 8 (winner taking 1000.00)
the they ran pairs down to the winner.

Doug Herbert made a 1/4 mile pass at 3.85 302.85 mph

Tyrone Graham, A parts guy at Tommy Johnson's Motorsports Warehouse was quick 8 winner,
He ran a 7.62 at 178.00mph 55 Chevy! A home Boy here in Newton, NC


I can now say I have participated in a Pinks all out event.
It was quite a adventure & experience.

that would suck if Rich was asked to leave.

I used to hate him because he acts like a jackass mosttimes, but when I was at pinks all out and heard his story I couldnt help but empathize with him. he deserves what he has - he pitched over 200 shows to the networks over a 15 year period until someone said yes. it was like a second job for him calling networks and pitching shows.

it would suck if they kept his idea without keeping him.
