NORWALK, Ohio --

Josh Peake
The International Hot Rod Association is pleased to announce that Josh Peake and Jim Woods, two longtime faces within the IHRA, have been named division directors for Division 9 and Division 2 respectively.

The two veteran officials will take over their respective divisions effective immediately, with Peake servicing racers in the Carolinas in the popular Raiders Division and Woods taking over in the southeast in IHRA's Heat Wave Division.

"We are very excited to welcome Jim and Josh to the family," said IHRA Vice President Skooter Peaco. "I have had the pleasure of working with both of them for many years and they are definitely the right guys for the job. They will be taking over for a very talented individual in Satch Gragg, but we are certain that Jim and Josh will be up for the task and will help us continue to grow our sportsman programs throughout, not only the divisions they will occupy, but throughout the country."

Peake is a very familiar face to racers throughout the country, especially in Division 9 where he has served as a second-generation starter for many seasons. Following in the footsteps of his father, IHRA national event starter Clyde Peake, Josh is a welcome addition to the IHRA family as he takes over the most populous of all of the IHRA divisions.

Jim Woods
Woods, a veteran tech official who essentially wrote the book on Super Stock and Stock racing, will take over as division director in his backyard of the Heat Wave Division, servicing tracks in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina, among others.

The IHRA is thrilled to welcome these two talented individuals to the family as they take over two of the premier divisions in the country.
