they call it pinks because its a diffrent version of the original show...if the only reason you dont like it is because it has pinks in it is kinda strange. the show is much better than the original but they still call it pinks because of marketing??? i mean cmon it is a pretty cool show although i do agree they cut to commericals in bad situations but entertaining non the less

ok the reason for pinks is to take pink slip racing off the streets and onto the dragstrip. that is the main purpose of the show or apparently you dont pay attention to local headlines in the paper saying teens killed in high speed crash. the reason this show was started was in the hope of attracting kids to the track instead of the street you wouldn't understand unless you've seen the results first hand.

The Pinks "concept" was bring everyday Joe's to the strip and race for each others cars... that quickly went out the window when everyone started acting like drama queens.

And now theres no way the average guy can even compete... unless he had 50k in his car.

The "new " show is nothing more than bracket racing.......

Not sure where you got your info but you can take a 16 sec Focus to FFW and run it in competioion all day long all weekend. I ran these events from 2002 to 2005 and loved it and there was MANY stock to wild Foci there running as well as 14 sec mustangs

All it takes is the want to go , cost of getting there and entry fee then take your stock Focus and have fun
