Epic Carnival | Where Sports and Pop Culture Collide: 10 of the best General Lee jumps of all-time

10 of the best General Lee jumps of all-time

So I saw this General Lee toy in the store the other day and it got me to wondering if there were any good clips online of the ole General doing some of its trademark jumps. Turns out (of course) there were. It also turns out that there are thousands of people who will turn out for an event called Dukesfest each year and that hundreds of people own their versions of the General Lee. Even more amazing is the number of people, who despite knowing that the Dukes of Hazzard was a TV show with stunt people doing the jumps, are willing to take their cars out and do a little jumping of their own. Some are successful, many are not. The 'or not' category is well-represented here. Enjoy!

At Atlanta Motor Speedway...


The General doesn't always land cleanly...


At the 2007 Dukesfest...
There must have been 100 General Lees there.



Missed it by that much...


Success at the '06 Dukesfest...
Much better video too.



Didn't quite make it...


Ohhh, so close...


A 'supposed' world record General Lee jump...


And he sticks the landing... literally.


The final jump of the real one.

what a impressive jump, since my childhood when I saw "Hazzard Dukes" I remember the famous "General Lee", for that reason this post, was one of the best in the world.
