K&F Show Summary: We are back for 2024! Unfortunately, the first show of the year for us will kick off with a memorial tribute to the late great Cale Yarborough. Cale passed away on Dec 31, 2023. He was an ironman in NASCAR certainly, but many of us met him initially due to his guest starring roles during Season 2 and Season 7 of the Dukes of Hazzard.
Instead of re-reviewing both of these episodes we decided to dedicate this episode to telling the life story of Cale himself. (Full links to both of his episodes are below, and we encourage you to listen to them as well.)
There will be facts here that some of you may know, but many of us didn’t. He was the first ever three-in-a-row NASCAR champion, a record only met (and then broken) by Jimmie Johnson. He won four Daytona 500’s, inclyding two back to back in 1983 and 1984. He pioneered CBS-TV’s use of the John Porter-Peter Larson in-car camera that could tilt and pan, footage of which was used in the Season 7 episode he appeared on during the Dukes.
He won the 1983 Daytona 500 in a backup car from a Hardees fast-good restaurant….after flipping his new-for-1983 Monte Carlo in qualifying at 204MPH. He taught himself how to fly an airplane. Possibly most famously, during the first ever flag-to-flag showing of the Daytona 500 on TV, he and the Bobby Allison got in a terrible fight after Cale and Donnie Allison (Bobby’s brother) wrecked for the win on the last lap.

Dukes Review: Somehow, within just a single year of this show starting, we went from being a more racy version of Smokey and the Bandit to a Saturday morning cartoon family fun spectacular. In this episode – NASCAR Royalty Cale Yarborough appears, only to test an illegal turbocharger for NASCAR in a white un-decaled General Lee. Even better, at one point the plot of the episode revolves around 3 General Lee – all being used on screen to cause confusion – all at the same time. The production quality is just like we like it too – crappy. There are painted over side-marker lights, scenes shot out of order, and it’s just so dumb that it’s fun….and that’s the way we like it too!

Bo and Luke completely and accidentally run into NASCAR superstar Cale Yarborough while he is testing a turbocharger for an upcoming NASCAR race. To suspend reality further, Cale’s test car is a white 1969 Dodge Charger wearing the 10-spoke Turbine style wheels that the General wears (which looks suspiciously like the car from the show we covered in Episode 17). Even zanier, is that upon meeting the Dukes he gives them the chance to test drive the car, fix his mechanical mistakes with it, and then fend off his mysterious NASCAR enemies The Jethro Brothers from stealing the unusable-in-NASCAR-but-they-want-it-anyway turbocharger for their own race car. To cap things off, the Dukes escape from Boss, Rosco, Enos, and the bad guys simultaneously by using the confusion tactics of having two other Chargers painted up like the General, thereby giving all bad guys a different one to chase. Hijinks ensue.
