The Robertson men got to live the dream of every rednecks. That is to drive a real race car in NASCAR.
On Wednesday, the Duck Commander sponsored a NASCAR race, and certainly, they raced, reported Newsy.com.
"This is awesome," Jase Robertson exclaimed as the men of the popular reality TV show "Duck Dynasty" raced on the track with their cars rumbling loud. "Every redneck's dream," Godwin Robertson beamed.
Because they were the sponsor of the event, the racing gods have allowed a few lucky Robertsons to drive a real live race car to a couple of laps, the report added.
The report said that Duck Commanded sponsored the NASCAR race, "so the guys decided whoever drove the fastest lap would get to be the race's Grand Marshal. You know, the one who says "Drivers, start your engines!"
Jase easily beat his brother Jep who was a little sheepish behind the wheel.
But it was Uncle Si who posted the fastest clock with a blistering 26 second. Uncle Si said his experience driving army vehicles in Vietnam game him the advantage as he let the other Robertson men, literally eat his dust.
For beating the rest of the Duck Dynasty, Uncle Si was given the honor to utter the most famous words in motor sports: "Drivers, start your engines," he yelled to the delight of the fans.
