Default Street outlaws Rumor

Don’t know how true rumors are , but rumor is that its going to be Canceled, in favor of the No Prep Drags. Its been on air for 7 years.

They got away from their roots, I mean come on 2000-3000 hp gutted cars, trying to go down street.

We just might not see those CV-1’s on Big Chief car after all.

No Prep Kings is a real deal ,just like Pinks All Out was except there is no index to break out of like Pinks All Out had. Pinks catered more to the "little guy" racers.
The No Prep Kings purse is bigger because those racers have huge money invested in their cars.The cars gotta eat.
You have runners that are not limited to one glory pass a night. They actually are able to go multiple rounds in a single day (ummm just like real everyday track drag racing). Patched up stuff is going to hang for too long.
There aren't a lot of convoluted rules and arguing over who gets to call out who on "the list" ,that in and of itself is refreshing!
Very straight forward deal You pony up the money, tow out to the race, buy in,try to make the cut of 16 or 32. If you get in the show you draw opponents & lanes by pure chance each round but 1st round call outs are allowed if both parties agree.
The start is old school pro-Stage & instant green. No arm drop flinch or questionable flashlight techniques.If you snooze or jump the beams yer done.
The track is actually a track with safety features. No curbs, grass ,trees ,light poles ,ditches etc. There are people there that are trained to put out fires and that can cut you out of the car if need be.

If the street racers wanna get in on the show there could be a match race format where participants race best out of three to win.
That used to really put butts in the seats back in the '60s & '70s .
Booked in match racers racing for big $$$$.
Fuel Dragsters, Funny Cars , Fuel Coupes,Fuel Roadsters, Fuel Altereds , A/FX cars,Gassers , stockers and even motorcycles all match raced.
There were some serious grudge matches going on.
The "LIST" was called "The Drag News Standard 1320 Record List" and it was nation wide.

I watch no prep, it's okay, I just feel those cars are all race cars, 100K+ cars.
I am a street race guy. Even an un prepped track hooks better than the street. (Not OKC street that looks like a race track)
I love cash days vidieo's. Real cars nothing fancy, getting down a street. The fastest/most expensive car does not win all the time.
No prep is an easy prediction. There are 3 top cars, Birdman, Fireball, Megladon. If one of them does not break, they will win.

I gotta agree with you there.
Most of the top cars there are fully capable of running in the sixes @ 200+ and would probably be able to qualify/compete in the NHRA top sportsman class.

Even with the amount of cars they have for just the No Prep Kings event I believe they could run a second competition at the same event for slower "street legal" cars.
Where you draw the line or how you group them would be the struggle and of course rules would have to be adopted.As always ET will govern the safety equipment requirements. An ET index system would eventually be arrived at.The Competition would be with cars similar to the pinks all out format but using the instant green start system instead of the arm drop.
That would fill in the dead time between the no prep rounds.
It would end up being a second show aired at a different time slot. Kind of the same way the NHRA LODRS sportsman classes get covered on TV by Fox Sports.

NHRA manages to run multiple classes at national events. All types of different classes qualifying & competing over three days (fri,sat,sun with thurs the move in day).
Even NHRA has scaled back the amount of track prep they do now during an event.
the fuel racers had to re-do their power/clutch management programming because they can't throw as much power at the track surface as they could in the past.
This has resulted in tighter racing and some interesting upset victories.

Pinks all out was awesome. I went when they had it here, it was packed just as much as a nhra national race.That whole event was your everyday guy with his everyday race car..

Pinks ALL OUT was great.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pinks
When Pinks All Out left the air Street Outlaws came along on Discovery and the rest is history.
The All Out show got screwed over when when the suits at FOX Sports bought the Speed Channel and proceeded to kill off all the great programming that made the speed channel so great.They tanked it on purpose and owned the naming rights to the Pinks All Out series. That whole FOX deal left a big void in actual motorsports coverage on TV. Most of the shows appearing on Velocity,now newly re-branded as "Motor Trend TV", are all reality drama car builder shows with some "do it your self" mechanic shows like "All Girls Garage" thrown in to keep it honest(?).
MOTOR TREND TV is now airing some programs , Gas Monkey,Misfit & even some re-run episodes of Street Outlaws that also currently appear on the Discovery Channel.
Count's Customs is staying on the history channel for now.

Don't know if Christensen has got the full rights to the PINKS ALL OUT franchise back and if he was able to pitch the concept to the people at Motor Trend TV .That deal would have had to happened a year ago .But if FOX sports has any involvement with Velocity/MT-TV probably not. SEE UPDATE
The last try at recording air-able Pinks All Out episodes was 2016 or 2017 .The event was called "PINKS WEEK" don't know if it succeeded or not.
I think the weather screwed up the event.
The old link to the Pinks Week site I bookmarked then now re-directs to a porno site in the Netherlands.Pinks, Blown , Stroked & Bored there have nothing to do with anything related to automotive & racing! LOL

UPDATE:
The show is coming back.
2014 Dragzine interview with Rick Christensen
https://www.dragzine.com/news/rich-c...pinks-all-out/
Took 'em a little while to get back on their feet.
Looks like The show has been Re-named "ALL OUT LIVE" and will be airing on MAV TV ,REVIN TV , You Tube Channel & ROKU
https://www.facebook.com/alloutlive/
https://alloutlive.com/


MAV TV actually features coverage of real motor racing events from countries around the world and their feature shows like
Performance TV, CHOP CUT REBUILD, FULL CUSTOM GARAGE, My Classic Car are the real deal. You are actually going to learn something from watching them.
After the FOX/SPEED debacle The Dave Despain Show moved to MAV TV.
