Studmuffin Posted January 15, 2009 Report Share Posted January 15, 2009 This question was written on January 15, 2009.A few days ago I got to thinking about Dukesfest 2009. At the Atlanta Motor Speedway one, I was told that there would be an announcement after the cars were jumped in the stunt show.Well, no announcement.Then I checked the Dukesfest page and saw only stuff that related to last year's show in 2008, the 30th anniversary.Then I went to Cooter's Place website and did not see anything about the Dukesfest for this year, 2009. So, I e-mailed them and got a terse reply. Basically they said that they were no longer doing the Dukesfest and it was up to John from now on.Well, he's got my e-mail address and I did not get any type of letters to the fans announcing the situation with the 2009 Dukesfest.Then I checked HazzardNet.com and Dukesonline.com and saw some talk / arguments about there NOT being a Dukesfest 2009.Is it because some bad things happened at the June 2008 program? Could it be that John does not have the money? Not enough or no sponsors? Bad publicity for Dukes because of the "politically incorrect" Confederate battle flag on the roof of the General Lee car?So, does that mean that there will NOT be one for the current 2009 year? I have my hunch that we may have seen the 30th anniversary Dukesfest in June 2008 to be the last one EVER.Does anyone concur? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
