KFDI's Tooker to try 'Hazzard'-ous stunt
Wichita will have its own "Dukes of Hazzard" this morning as KFDI personality Dan Tooker and his producer, Jonathan Watkins, attempt to jump a 1988 Grand Prix over a sand dune -- as though they were Bo and Luke Duke piloting the legendary General Lee.
"It's not a charity event," Watkins said. "It's just a stunt that grew out of a discussion about whether a car could still run after such a jump."
The jump will be live and on the air at 7:40 a.m. on 101.3 FM. The jump coincides with the opening of the new "Dukes of Hazzard" movie. Tooker will be driving and broadcasting at the same time.
The four-foot dune was built by the Wichita Jeeps Motorcycle Club in Valley Center with a 45-foot approach. The estimated speed will be 35 to 40 mph, and the trajectory will take them about 20 feet before they land, Watkins said.
"Neither one of us are qualified drivers, so I guess we're just insane," he said. "I hope we won't be broadcasting from a hospital room next week."
