Of all of the TV shows that I have on DVD, Tyler and Sam have really enjoyed The Dukes of Hazzard. There was a special feature on the season two DVD about an event called Dukesfest that takes place annually in Bristol, Tennessee. When we found out that this years event occurred on the weekend of Sam's birthday, we decided that we had to try it out.

We had an uneventful trip down, leaving home around 9:00 and arriving at our hotel in Bristol, Virginia around 10:00 at night. The following morning we got up and went to Bristol Motor Speedway, where the Dukesfest was held. While there we saw several General Lee's, including a few that were actually used on the show. We also got to see some drag racing, as well as the inside of the speedway. Although several former actors from the show were there, we didn't wait in the long lines that were there for them.
