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
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.
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.
