Jamie and the Hancock Racing crew made their Radial vs. the World debut at Lights Out V at South Georgia Motorsports Park in Cecil, Georgia this past February.
Jamie Hancock has attended two races this year with the Hancock Racing Pro Mod Corvette and is putting up some fantastic numbers for a nitrous car, well for any car, running right in the thick of the Radial vs. the World class at Lights Out V and the Outlaw Street Car Reunion at Memphis just last weekend, recording the quickest time for a nitrous radial car with a 4.164 at 177.3 MPH. All this is which a car that has not seen the track since 2010. Jamie also won the 2007 ADRL Pro Nitrous Championship with this car making him the youngest professional drag racing champion at the time.

I caught up with Troy Pirez Jr. at his Seffner, Florida shop recently to catch up on what’s been going on with his Innovative Racecraft business and get the “scoop” on his new Lexan scoops. Troy Jr. has been in business well over a year now and made the move back to Seffner recently after working with Joe Irwin at Fast Forward Race Engines in New Port Richey, Florida.
What started as an after school side business then part time while working at Fast Forward has matured into something that requires full attention in a short time.
