Corvettes of Dallas to Sponsor the Quick 8 at PINKS All Out
Leading DFW Corvette retailer and performance tuner Corvettes of Dallas has stepped up to sponsor the Quick 8 competition during PINKS All Out, Saturday March 21 at Texas Motorplex in Ennis.
“The Corvettes of Dallas Quick 8” will feature the eight quickest race cars out of the field of more than 460 qualifiers vying for a spot in PINKS All Out and racing for over $18,000 in prize money.
The event, hosted by Rich Christensen, executive producer and creator of PINKS, is an entire day’s worth of on-track racing and off-track activities. Filmed for the highly-popular show on SPEED, the event invites more than 450 racers from across the southwest to run their cars “all out” during two time trial sessions, while the show’s technical advisors select the closest grouping of elapsed times to make up the PINKS All Out 16. In the process, PINKS will select the quickest eight racers to compete in the “Corvettes of Dallas Quick 8.”
Winner of the Quick 8 will receive a cash bonus and recognition as Corvettes of Dallas Quick 8 Champion.
To prepare for the March 21 event, Corvettes of Dallas located on Interstate 35 in Carrollton, is also offering a special PINKS All Out precision dyno offer to racers or anyone eager to improve the performance of their car…Race car or street car. From now until March 21, bring in your car and receive a 3 pull baseline dyno for $49 or reserve exclusive dyno time at the discounted rate of $80 per hour.
“If you have never had your car on a dyno, there is a huge gain to be had,” said Todd Fitzerman, owner of Corvettes of Dallas. Our performance tuners are racers and have been able to help car owners gain 2-3 tenths for both street car and race cars.”
“Corvettes of Dallas will be available for PINKS All Out entrants to bring in their rides in preparation of the event, however this DYNO special is available to ANYONE wanting to get the most out of their car,” Fitzerman added.
Four hundred racers signed up in the first four hours of registration for PINKS All Out, and 64 more spots are up for grabs at second chance qualifier races on Saturday March 7 and 14 at the Motorplex, located on Hwy. 287 in Ennis between I 35E and I 45.
