30 mph, Nick Hogan? Nah, try 100+ mph.
Bollea speed put at 100 mph

He and a friend were driving at that speed in the August crash, a passenger told police.

CLEARWATER -- Nick Bollea and a friend were driving their cars around 100 mph moments before the Aug. 26 crash that left a passenger critically injured, according to Clearwater police documents released Tuesday.

Included in the 130 pages of documents was an interview with Barrett Lawrance, a close friend of Bollea's and the passenger in a silver Dodge Viper. Witnesses said the Viper was racing against the Toyota Supra driven by Bollea, son of celebrity wrestler Hulk Hogan.

Lawrance told police the Viper, driven by his friend Daniel Jacobs, was traveling around 100 mph at the time of the accident. The speed limit on Court Street where the car crashed is 40 mph.

Asked if Jacobs and Bollea were driving recklessly, Lawrance said: "This is how they always drive."

I have to add this, as to Bollea's Supra:

As compensation to Hogan for appearing at the company's grand opening, Ride Revolution added parts and made modifications to the Supra so that it had 544 horsepower and 476 pound-feet of torque. A base-level Toyota Supra has 220 horsepower and 215 pound-feet of torque.

This report comes to you live from Tampa Bay, where it's Hogan, Hogan and Hogan, 24/7.
