Book Nick Hogan » Nicholas Allan Bollea (born July 27, 1990), also known as Nick Hogan, is an American realitypersonality, best known as the son of semi-retired professional wrestler Hulk Hogan and for his appearances on the reality show Hogan Knows Best (and its spinoff, Brooke Knows Best) alongside his father, mother Linda, and older sibling Brooke.
Bollea earned a Formula D competition license in 2006 from Formula Drift, the only professional drifting series in North America, and competed in one of their competitions, the event in Atlanta on May 12, 2007. Bollea was active in the NOPI Drift series, qualified 10th at the Denver NOPI drift event of 2007, and placed third at their Pittsburgh event. Bollea occasionally attended amateur drifting competitions. Bollea attended two of Chris Tyler's drifting events in the Tampa Bay area. One of these was a drifting competition in DeSoto county the Friday prior to the crash of Nick's Toyota Supra. Bollea did not compete, but he did give drifting demonstrations between the runs of competitors. Bollea's celebrity status and enthusiasm for drifting attracted sponsors. He was briefly signed to Dodge, but company spokesman Todd Goyer said that he "is not a Dodge driver or a Mopar driver", and that his relationship with Dodge/Mopar ended two months prior to his 2007 crash. He was sponsored for the 2007 season by Polaroid, Mac Tools, BF Goodrich and Sparco. These companies are still listed on the NOPI website as sponsors of Nick's drift car, but Polaroid VP of marketing Cheryl Mau said, "We do not have a signed sponsorship agreement with Nick Hogan for the 2008 race season." Bollea had twoÂ Dodge Vipers with steering modified to enhance their drifting capability, but his last competition vehicle was a Nissan 350Z. John Graziano (the veteran Marine injured in the Supra crash) and Danny Jacobs (the driver of the silver Viper, seen with the Supra at the time of the crash) worked in Nick Bollea's pit crew during 2007 in St. Louis, Denver and Los Angeles. Barry Lawrence, the passenger in the aforementioned Viper, was also a member of Bollea's pit crew. Currently, Bollea better known these days as DJ Nick Hogan is on tour with world renowned Armani Exchange DJ PM. Signed to CEG Talent, based in NYC, the duo perform at venues across the United States and will be expanding to Global venues in the first quarter of 2011. In the last few month, Nick and PM have been featured together on multiple radio interviews and magazine articles. Nick has recently been seen on Good Morning America and Nightline discussing how he has gained an interest in music and plans on pursuing his career as a DJ and music executive. Recently, news has surfaced that Nick has teamed up with his DJ partner PM aka Pete Magma and the duo have opened Magma Records Corporation which is thought by many to be the most anticipated record label of the new generation. The future seems bright for this young reality star who seems to be fitting in nicely in the music world.
