HAMPTON, Ga., Oct. 26 (UPI) -- All of the major stars of the classic 1980s TV show, "The Dukes of Hazzard," are planning to attend the 10th Annual DukesFest in Hampton, Ga., next summer.

The Dukesfest and Hazzard County Fair is slated to take place in June at the Atlanta Motor Speedway, not far from Covington, the place where the television show was filmed.

The weekend will be produced by John and Elly Schneider and will feature appearances and autograph sessions from show cast members like Schneider (Bo Duke), Catherine Bach (Daisy Duke), Tom Wopat (Luke Duke), James Best (Sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane), Ben Jones (Cooter Davenport), Rick Hurst (Clettus Hogg) and Sonny Shroyer (Deputy Enos Strate).

About 200,000 people attend "DukesFest" each year.

"Atlanta Motor Speedway is the perfect venue for the 2008 DukesFest and Hazzard County Fair event," Schneider said in a statement. "It is a beautiful facility and after all, it is just miles from where the Dukes were born."

Scheduled for the weekend is a car show, featuring hundreds of world-famous 1969 "General Lee" Dodge Chargers, trucks and tractors, as well as a demolition derby, stunt shows, including an authentic "General Lee" jump, craft vendors, lawn-mower races and Daisy Dukes contests.
