LURAY, Oct. 1 — Cooter’s Place just west of Luray will host “Hazzard Run 2021” on Saturday, Oct. 2 and Sunday, Oct. 3 with activities planned both days from a “parade” of 75 cars winding through Page County’s three towns on Saturday, to special guests and a live concerts both days at the tourist attraction along Route 211.
The Page County portion of the “Hazzard Run” begins at Cooter’s Place at 10 a.m. when the Shenandoah Volunteer Fire Department will escort a line of 75 classic cars — including numerous orange Dodge Chargers known as “General Lee” — to the Town of Shenandoah.
After looping through Shenandoah, the convoy will head north on Route 340 and meet the Stanley Volunteer Fire Department at Page County High School. From there, Stanley volunteers will lead the caravan through their town and further north on Route 340 to Rex Burner’s.
The Luray Volunteer Fire Department will take the lead at that point and guide the group to the stoplight at Broad and Main in Downtown Luray, and then turn left onto West Main Street, joining Route 211 beyond the Singing Tower and continuing west back to Cooter’s Place.
Once back at Cooter’s, everyone will prepare for a live concert and an opportunity to meet the following special guests related to the popular 1980s CBS television hit “The Dukes of Hazzard”:
• Tom Wopat (Luke Duke)
• Ben Jones (Cooter Davenport)
• Dorothy Best (widow of the late James Best, who played “Roscoe P. Coletrain”)
• Chris Hensel (“Jeb Stuart Duke”)
• Tom Sarmento (Mechanic from Dukes of Hazzard)
