RIP Joe Hunt: Our Friends At 1320 Put Together A Great Tribute. God Speed My Friend.

Joe Hunt is one of those guys that totally lives street cars and drag racing. Completely. He’s one of us. There is no doubt that he was as hardcore as they come. I met him several years ago, when he and Joey Hykel were racing the Beater Bomb Mustang at the 1320Video Ice Cream Cruise race and I’ve run into both of them on several occasions over the years. Always fun to be around, and always talking smack, Joe was one of those guys you couldn’t help but laugh and smile around because he was always having a good time. Unfortunately on September 28th he died in an organized and sanctioned street race in Kansas, where he crashed his car doing what he loved. It was a sad, sad, day regardless.

Thankfully our friends at 1320Video have created this cool tribute video. Joe was very good friends with Kyle Loftis and the gang from 1320Video so there was nobody better to handle making something like this and we certainly appreciate it. Hopefully this gives you a taste of the Joe Hunt we knew even if you didn’t.

    Sympathies to the Hunt family and all his friends, but this is exactly why this is so WRONG!!! Did I do it back in the day? Yes. Did we have Pro Street cars with plates on ’em? NO! Stand down, haters! Just an old man’s (still alive) opinion…

      dude, it was a sanctioned race with police and emergency medical services present. At least get the facts before spouting off

        What, exactly, is an “organized and sanctioned street race”? Didn’t see any mention of police and emergency services, or why would it be a “street race”? I was referring to the stupid stuff in the montage, such as racing in traffic on the freeway and on the side streets in industrial areas. We had such an incident in an industrial park over the summer here in Houston that resulted in a death, and in the Camaro with the driver’s door torn off, you could clearly see an 8.0 cage in the car. Not exactly a “street” car; that was my point, Skippy.

          Organized and sanctioned means that it’s a race held yearly with permission from local law enforcement. It’s referred to as a “street race” because it’s held on closed off streets, just like the event hot rod hosts in Pontiac mi or wherever it is. My point is that you should do a little research before passing judgement on somebody. This was just a tragic racing accident, which can happen on any track
