BYRON, Ga. —
The organizer of a planned Dukes of Hazzard reunion believes tens of thousands of fans could descend on a rural Georgia race track.
Chris Jennings says tickets have been sold in all 50 states and nine countries.
The Telegraph reports (http://bit.ly/14sHeR7) that the event is beginning to have the makings of a countrified Woodstock.
Jennings said he believes more than 60,000 will show up for the “Dukes of Hazzard” Georgia Reunion, Classic Car Show and Music Festival.
The reunion is set for Friday through Sunday in Byron. Organizers say it will feature seven of the original cast members, including Catherine Bach (Daisy Duke); John Schneider (Bo Duke); and Tom Wopat (Luke Duke); and James Best (Sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane).
The CBS show Dukes of Hazzard aired from 1979 to 1985.
