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.
