Focus shifts to Linda as street racing DVD surfaces

Looks like the old “apple doesn’t fall far from the tree” saying rings true for the Hogan (Bollea) household. Since Nick’s infamous August crash, RIDES-Mag.com has been bringing you the latest updates on the investigation, as well as victim John Graziano’s condition. In doing so, much of the feedback we’ve received from readers has pointed the finger at parents Hulk and Linda for turning a blind eye to Nick’s questionable driving practices. Now, a DVD has emerged showing that street racing may not have just been ignored by the parents, but actually encouraged- or at the very least glorified, specifically by Linda.

As first reported by ABC Action News of Tampa Bay, a street racing DVD, titled Vehicular Lunatics has surfaced, which features the entire Hogan foursome on camera, with Linda professing her love for racing (and doing some herself).

In the 2005 compilation, Linda is seen driving with daughter Brooke, who asks two men in an adjacent car if they want to race. The two then take off at unknown speeds. Later, in a DVD extra, Linda describes her love for street racing in these exact words: “Oh, I love it. I love it. The rush, the speed on the road, stereo blasting, heart-pounding, racing in between all the cars, dodging the cops. It’s awesome.”

In an interview with ABC Action News’ Matthew Schwartz, Linda (and Nick) denies ever making the comment- but the video doesn’t lie. This one keeps gettin’ deeper… Hulk may know best, but apparently his family ain’t listening!
