Here is a nice truck!!

I checked it out this past weekend at the pinks all out ORP.
He was running low 10's without the bottle.
The truck made the 32 car field they picked but was knocked out early.

From the looks of the stands ,it doesn't look like they packed the house? I don't know what you guys thought of it, but as a racer I felt it was a carnival show . Lots of cool vehicles ,but not much as far racing goes.

Dan they said 15,000 in the stands both fri and sat. The show was postponed Saturday evening because of rain and tornado warnings. When they finished up Sunday the stands weren't near as full.
I bet Speed is disappointed with sundays turnout for filming.
As a spectator it was a fun weekend, but your right it's a show.

Dan,

You're right on the fans. The stands didn't have may spectators in them,.....UNTIL they called the the class of us 32 cars/trucks to run, then they packed the house.

It was unbelievable how many people were there.

As far as the racing,........it wasn't too bad. I've had worse,......and I've had better.


FWIW,.......I'm going to try to do another Pinks All Out event in Bristol this September if I can get a ticket.
