John Schneider aka Bo Duke at Lucas Oil Speedway this Weekend
John Schneider said many people assume that his interest in fast cars began with his role as Bo Duke driving the General Lee on the iconic television program “Dukes of Hazzard.”
Festivities kick off Friday night as Schneider headlines a big concert at the dirt track, followed by the showing of his movie “Stand On It” on the track’s Jumbotron video board.
On Saturday night, Schneider and wife Alicia Allain will race their own B-Mods in the Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mod portion of the Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series program. Prior to singing the National Anthem that night, Schneider will talk about the meaning of the Anthem.
Sunday morning prior to the beginning of Day 2 of the KDBA Summer Shootout on Lake Lucas, Schneider will hold Cowboy Church services along with a pastor from Racers for Christ at Lake Lucas.
On Friday night, Schneider looks forward to bringing another of his passions to the fans, when he joins his band on stage in front of the main grandstand. Country stars Keith Burns of the band Trick Pony and Cody McCarver of the band Confederate Railroad also will be part of the show.
Following the concert, Schneider’s movie “Stand On It” will show on the track’s JumboTron video board. The film is a tribute to Smokey and the Bandit. Schneider said he’s in the final stages of editing for his next release, a sequel to Stand On It called “Poker Run.” That one is scheduled for release the day after Thanksgiving.
