The Lowdown Extra – Complete Rich Christensen Interview

Tonight on Speed Channel, Pinks All Out will air its event taped at the zMax Dragway in Charlotte, North Carolina at 8:00 PM. This is a big episode of All Out because it will feature the first televised four-wide drag race. If you recall, I interviewed Pinks All Out host Rich Christensen just a week-and-a-half before he went to Charlotte for the All Out show at zMax. We talked about the prospect of four-wide racing, changes made for this season of Pinks All Out, his Arm Drop Live drag race weekends, working for Speed Channel, and much more.
