“This one is shaping up to be huge,” says Ben Jones, who played “Cooter” on the show and is producing the big shindig along with his wife, Alma Viator. “This morning we’re announcing our musical lineup for the festival, and we are excited to welcome 90’s hitmakers Confederate Railroad, America’s longest running band – the award-winning country group Exile, and the Saturday night headliner… five-time Grammy winner Wynonna & The Big Noise.”
“This is a celebration of sorts,” Jones says. “It’s a celebration of the spirit and fun of living in the Heartland of America, with great music, fast cars, and the cast of our show. It’s about people who love their families and who still have pride in America and in our way of life. When all our fans get together, it is something to behold. It becomes Hazzard County. We’ve already got almost two hundred General Lees rolling in, and folks will be coming in from all over the United States and from several foreign nations.”
“The Speedway is also a perfect place for our Dukes Stunt Show, which culminates, of course, with a big jump by the General. Folks will be able to ride the track in a General Lee, and the stunt guys will also be giving rides in “drift cars”.
