Why did'nt this car make Pinks All-Out?

I was looking for racing video's on youtube when I stumbled upon this one.

Why in the hell did this car not make the field? I know the show is more about a good show than good racing, and that they are very biased towards FWD sport compacts & imports, but come on man!!!

They picked a low 10 sec class.
RLZ is a well known Honda shop here in NC and they build some nasty ass cars.

They said they wld try to have an srt in every class.. guess it didn't plan out..

All the 10, 11, 12 sec and faster srts should try and plan to be in one.. invade that shit and rep fwd.. if atleast 15 go, some one shld end in the class they pic..

problem is their "fields" are in general never low enough for the majority of SRT-4's to make it in. plus getting tickets is damn near impossible. ask kevin what happened the last time he tried... think it was on-line entry opened at 12am and the 400 slots were filled by 12:04.

there's not enough 10s neons in any one place to make the statistics likely unfortunately. it's just a fact that right now 10s neons aren't as reliable as 10s "muscle cars" simply because they have many more years (decades in most cases) of parts development time behind the car classes themselves. if you want to do 10s on the cheap grab an 80s mustang and you're there no brainer style. once you cross into 10s on a 4cyl that's not a totally gutted race car you wind up breaking shit far more often.

my only chance at a PAO race would be if they picked a low 12s maybe a high 11s class as I might be in that category within a year... IF I do more work on the car for more 1/4 mile racing.

Aspsrt05 and I were in the one at zmax last year. IMHO its very overrated. They interviewed corey for pinks all outtakes but it didn't make the final cut. I got interviewed for the local news down there which was kinda cool even tho it was only like a 2 min interview. It was a fun experience although I probably won't ever go back to another. In 2 days u only get 4 passes if u don't make the field and Rich is a major douche to 4 cyl guys that are not running in the 9s. And over all its very unorganized.

Just another TDS tuned car in the 11s

Here in Indy, I didnt get a ticket in the intital sale, but they had a last chance race, said just win a round, your in, I won a round on a double breakout, then had too many winners, eliminated those who broke out---so much for going all out, lol. I didnt go, but those that did told me up to 50 cars showed up that couldnt run the minimum of 12.99, that sucks they took away from those that can.
