After a long day on the job, there''s nothing like relaxing with an ice cold beer at Hazzard County''s finest drinking establishment, The Boar''s Nest, where Daisy waits tables.

They quickly find out, the hard way, that Daisy isn''t just a pretty face--she kicks ass like a Duke; and with Bo and Luke in the mix, that usually means a good old-fashioned knock-down, drag-out bar brawl. But it''s not all moonshine and farm girls these days---when Bo and Luke discover evidence that their neighbors'' properties are being unlawfully seized by crooked commissioner Boss Hogg, their only chance to protect their hometown is to put the ''pedal to the medal'' in a last-ditch scheme to save Hazzard County.
