Hey Tony
If they do it like they did at the Grove, the first run Saturday will be off the tree and you will get time slip, the second run will be Rich with the arm drop and you won't get a slip.
See you this weekend.

Hmmmm So can someone riddle me this? (I"m asking cuz I'm going to run in Pinks All Out in September at Infineon, CA).... So basically you get a total of two runs before the selection process happens? One on a friday and one on a saturday???? One timeslip on friday and one arm drop no timeslip on saturday????

Wow seems like a whole lot of waiting around for ONE banzai pass..... I'm guessing those two passes better be pretty closely consistent if you're wanting to get picked huh????

Oh hold on nevermind i just got the test n tune day on friday seems like multiple passes right???? all with slips..... i just re-read the post...

You know how rumors go but, I heard they start looking at cars during the first round. Trying to get an idea of a tight group of 16. I think your second pass better be close to the first or you won't be in the show.

Exactly what Wayne Paul, ETown's Pink's All Out Coordinator told me.

See you Friday which is just to get a pit spot and tech in though there is an optional $35 T/T.

Yeah looks like the passes on saturday are the ones where you had better be consistent......

I think we're setting up my car to run 9.50's and hope for the best.... Hopefully at infineon they won't be able to stock a 16 car field of 9.0 cars or 8.50 cars.....

Knowing my luck that'll be the week they have an 8.50 Pinks All Out field... :D

You will get two passes on Saturday, but Friday I would guess it is up to the track on how many passes you can get in. At Maple Grove it was 2 passes on Friday.

Friday at E-Town will be a Test and Tune from 2 to 8.
Saturday, first pass with the tree, you get a time slip.
Second pass, Rich's arm drop, no slip.
Better make those two on Saturday fairly close together. Don't try to dial-into a number or you may be on the outside looking-in.

Good luck to all!

PINKS just filmed an episode here in St.Louis. At first I was skeptical about how well it would go but after we got there, got setup and ready to run we actually had a blast. Really, there just weren't any turds running as everything was 12.99 and faster so the cars were fun to watch.

We were numbered in groups of 50 so when your group wasn't running, there was time to cruise the vendor row, watch some passes, cruise the pits and fix any problems that might come up.

Since we have an "odd" car, we got called to the lanes with 20 or so other "odd" cars to make another pass for filming. I guess there going to use the footage to fill on the show or use it on Alloutakes. We got a slip on that pass too. The only one we didn't get a slip was the armdrop #2 on saturday.

We found out in Tucson...The Pinks crew is there on Friday TNT watching, if you have a 8/9 sec car at the TNT, you better have a 8/9 sec. car on sat or you just made the don't pick list. Also, if you jump the arm start, you won't get picked.
