Christensen and the SPEED crew come to Bristol after a remarkable debut event in 2007. More than 400 racers registered to compete in that race and the grandstands were packed with spectators eager to see the action live.
With the chance to find themselves on television, many curious spectators visited Bristol Dragway to see what the excitement was about. After seeing the event, many of those visitors were transformed in to die-hard PINKS fans.
Each event combines a large-scale television production with the sights, sounds and atmosphere of a live drag racing experience. It's a full Saturday worth of entertainment, including two time trial sessions, a final 16-car shootout and a full roster of drag racing exhibitions.
When not in the stands, fans can experience the SPEED Mobile Theatre, purchase officially licensed PINKS ALL OUT merchandise, enjoy a merchant's midway and take in a variety of family oriented activities. Fridays of event weekend are reserved for racer registration and a pre-event test and tune session.
The hour-long program currently airs on Thursday nights at 8 p.m. ET as part of the network's ‘Big Block Thursday.' Season Four is expected to premiere in July of 2010.
