Check out Pinks on SPEED. They're racing Yammis in Texas.

The show is dragged out too much, as XCR583 said, just line up and race. They try and get the audience at home into the fight to and I think that the real races are fun, but besides that, its boring.

what channel.?[/b]
SPEED

Is there any other channel?
Actually it was better when Nascar didn't own it (at least they seem to).
RIP Speedvision :thumbsup:

Anyway, back to PINKS. This was one of the finest PINKS I've seen. Good sportsmanship and close races.

I've seen the show before, but got annoyed at all the bickering and problems with vehicles trannys blowing, etc. But this show with the sleds didn't have any breakdowns and was enjoyable to watch. Both riders are from the TY website.

They do too much fighting, that's for sure. And when one guy loses by less than half a length... remind me again how the host thinks it's fair to suggest 5 lengths??? It's just to get the watchers emotional about what's going on. If ya can't race straight up... ya can't race. The idea behind racing is to see who's the fastest... not who can "outwit" the other. At least not when pinks are involved. Not in the real world. Even if they had to limit races to certain hp vs same hp for each race to make things interesting... a true race does not need sympathy from the competition for each and every race that takes place.

It's like a gun fight... except the guy with the smaller gun gets to fire closer than the guy with the larger gun, and they take turns firing at one another :D

Actually it's FOX that owns it. I can't wait till the coverage on ESPN starts this summer.

I'm sick of the Toyota cheerleading from DW :cussing: :bash: .

I don't normally watch pinks, because anytime I've glanced @ it, the "posses" around each driver seem like a bunch of idiots.

Just saw that episode last night!.. might fine episode I must say..my fav yet..dont watch much of pinks catch it once and a while.. usually get bored and watch some 2003 snow trax videos haha.. but this really was quite the episode and that VMAX really ran well against a sled that I THOUGHT had alot more horse power and speed.. APEX 150hp + (didnt say how much Nitrous) - maybe another 15-20 hp? ... that vmax is quite the sled.. I loved the Old School Vs Newschool (with mods)

I liked that episode too: it's interesting to know that without nitrous, the new Apex could not have won a single race against the ten year old stock VMAX. Coming from the words of the Apex racer. :D
