Synopsis by Hal Erickson
In the first episode of a two-part story, Daisy (Catherine Bach) and Jesse (Denver Pyle) are astonished--a not a little disgusted--when Luke (Tom Wopat) and Bo (John Schneider) accept an offer from Mary Beth Carver (Lydia Cornell) to return to the NASCAR circuit. After all, Mary Beth's promoter father J.J. Carver (Ramon Bieri) is a mob-connected crook, and the Duke boys had previously vowed never to work for him again. What no one but Luke, Bo and the viewer knows is that the boys are working undercover on behalf of some Federal agents, who hope to get the goods on Carver and put him away for life--assuming, of course, that the Dukes will live long enough to see this happen!
