Duck Dynasty Night at Berlin Raceway
Berlin Raceway officials conjured up a special paint scheme for Duck Dynasty Night in Marne, Michigan.
Duck Dynasty star Willie Robertson: “This car is awesome. It looks really good. They did a great job wrapping it. I’m impressed. I wasn’t expecting that.”
When Duck Dynasty Season 3 wrapped up on the A&E network in April, about 9.6 million viewers tuned in, making it the year’s No. 1 nonfiction cable TV series.
Willie Robertson, the CEO of Duck Commander, the duckcalling business that serves as the centerpiece for this series, is not surprised by what has happened, given that, despite all the beards on all the male family members, the show is very clean-cut.
“I think it’s the family values in the show,” Willie Robertson said prior to making an appearance at Berlin Raceway on Saturday for Duck Dynasty Night.
“It’s funny, it’s well done, and if you put those things together, I’m thinking America was really wanting that.
“We kind of stood out in the crowd, and a lot of people have been watching that, that’s for sure.”
The show, however, is not just about Willie Robertson. His brother, Jase, is a key figure, as are his father, Phil, and Uncle Si. Willie Robertson’s wife, Korie, and his mother, Miss Kay, help keep the house in order while the boys are busy doing what they do on the weekly series.
There will be a new addition or this season, which premieres August 14. Younger brother Alan, the preacher at the church where the Robertsons are members, will be joining his bearded brothers on a semi-regular basis.
“Al is really funny as well, and hopefully he will be on the show more,” Willie Robertson said.
“People will get to see our beardless brother.”
By the time Willie and Korie Robertson and Justin Martin, one of Duck Commander’s more popular employees who is often the butt of jokes because of his girth, began signing autographs on Saturday, hundreds of people were lined up under the Berlin Raceway grandstands to meet the beards.
