    We was pitted near them one night and we didn’t even make it to the end of hot laps before our entire team was in agreement that we wouldn’t make it to lunch time the first day before Johnathon would be laying in middle of the shop floor counting sheep if we had to deal with him

    So what some of you are saying is HTF is just Entertainment.

    I remember when the TV show Pawn Stars got exposed as scripted and fake, and that it was filmed on a “set”.

    Everybody's milage will vary on that topic. If you really want a person's attention you have mouth and they ears...they can say yes or no to your answer.

    I still say to this day that ole Bloomer's tshirt sales doubled the day he put up ropes around his pit area. He made his piece of real estate exclusive by doing that.

    I like the statement from page 1 of this thread:

    "Hunt The Front Super Dirt Series is Joshua & his lawyer wifes regional racing series. Just wasn't a reliable series in the South. Most of the Sat night races are $10-15K for winner."

    $10,000 to $15,000 to win on a Saturday night? Who would want to race for that paltry sum?

    EVERYBODY!!!!!!!!

    Post Two Loosely Connected Companies

    HTF appears to be two loosely connected companies—a racing series and an apparel company.

    The racing series looks to be primarily promoted by Joshua and Liz and seems to be on the way up. It does not appear Langenfelder had a thing to do with sponsoring the racing series.

    The rest of them run an apparel company that uses videos and racing/show cars to promote their brand. There is crossover between the two with one promoting and doing work with the other, especially with the podcasts.

    It also looks like Joshua managed to court Kubota over to help him pay the bills for purses, point funds, and personnel costs for his racing series. From there it looks like he did a nice job selling the quarter panels on the apparel company’s cars for more exposure. Both companies would have been far better off with Kubota and Langenfelder. Remember they still have the same number of mouths to feed.

    If some would watch the hour long video posted above, would have much better understanding of this situation.

    So much hate now. We all know where/who has encouraged it last 8ish years. Need to be outraged! Hate, hate, hate.

    Well I don't have an hour I wish to donate to HTF, so I'll just continue not caring about it either way. I'll watch the series videos but the shop/team videos bore me and thats about it. Moving on.

    Well, looks like Langenfelder already got himself a new driver. At least I don’t remember him being all over Gary Sthulers car in previous years
