Pinks

This afternoon on my KMOX show, I talked with Rich Christensen, host of the TV show "Pinks," in which guys drag race their custom vehicles, and the winner gets the other guy's car (the pink slip being the title paperwork they have to hand over).

I watched an episode of "Pinks" this weekend on the Speed Channel -- no, I didn't know there was such a channel until a couple of days ago, either -- and was immediately taken with the storyline of these two guys who have invested so much time, energy, and money in these vehicles, and then risked losing them in a best-of-five drag race format. Each show has new racers, new vehicles, and new storylines. I don't know why one of the major networks hasn't picked up this show yet.

Listen to the conversation here.

They'll tape two shows for the upcoming third season at Gateway Raceway here in St. Louis tonight, and another two tomorrow night, and the public is invited.
