Hands-down an undisputed style master and shaper, Tyler Hatzikian’s childhood passion was race cars. As a child, Tyler’s reward for finishing all of his chores around the house was going to the track with his dad – the sooner he finished, the sooner he’d get to go watch his idols put 650 horsepower from a 1200 pound bare-bones sprint car into the dirt. For comparison, NASCAR race cars have roughly the same horsepower, but almost 3-times the weight – needless to say these sprint cars are a bit trimmer on body fat, and have the speed and torque to show for it.
