Back in late August, Nick Hogan, the son of everyone's fave wrastler Hulk Hogan, wrecked his dad's $50,000 Toyota Supra in Clearwater, Florida. While Hogan was wearing a seatbelt and emerged relatively OK, his passenger, friend John Graziano, was not and will likely need life long care for his injuries.
We haven't heard so much as a peep from Nick since the crash. It's very serious considering that the police know he was racing another car on city streets in the rain and ignoring traffic lights and signs. On top of that, the police are waiting for results from his drug tests to determine if he was also impaired while driving. So when Nick posted for the first time on his MySpace page since the accident, some were a little shocked at the contents (read them in full after the jump). Nick talks about losing his ride with Mopar in pro drifting, but sounds excited about his new title sponsor Polariod. Next season he'll apparently be fielding his own team with a pair of Nissan 350Zs. He finishes his post by asking for luck for the '08 season and to keep his friend, John Graziano, in your prayers.

What we're surprised by is not the fact that Nick will be drifting competitively again, although we think he's proven time and again that competitive racing of any form is not his strong suit. No, what surprises us is that his parents, the Hulkster himself, would let him get behind the wheel of a high-horsepower car again. We're also presuming the elder Hogan has bankrolled Nick's newest venture, since we've never known the young Hulk to be gainfully employed and have money of his own. Well, here's hoping that Nick confines his high-performance driving to the track this time.
