PGA Pro Bubba Watson will drive The General Lee from "The Dukes of Hazzard" fame during a ceremonial parade lap as part of his duties as honorary race official at the SUBWAY Fresh Fit 500 on March 4 at Phoenix International Raceway.

Watson, who lives in Scottsdale, purchased The General Lee at the Barrett-Jackson Classic Car Auction in January.

"We are really excited to have Bubba join us for the SUBWAY Fresh Fit 500," said PIR president Bryan R. Sperber. "The fact that he's bringing The General Lee just takes it to a whole new level. I think the fans are going to be pumped to see them both."

Watson, who is known for his character and humility both on and off of the golf course, was excited to receive the invitation from Sperber to participate during the pre-race ceremony.
