Dukes Of Hazzard - John Schneider Quit Racing After Pal's High-speed Crash

Dukes Of Hazzard star John Schneider quit racing cars after watching a pal flip a Bmw at 150 miles (241.4 kilometres) per hour.

The actor took his love of racing from the screen to the track after he became a Tv star on the beloved 1980s series - but a scare prompted him to walk away from the fast-paced sport.

He tells BlogTalkRadio.com, "I loved racing 10 years ago and then one day I was in a race and I saw the people behind me make a mistake and a beautiful 12 cylinder Bmw went upside down at 150 miles an hour in a desert, and, from that moment on, I honestly lost my nerve.

"I was hauling the car myself and prepping the car myself, four people look at your tyres and then you're doing 160 in the desert. I finished that race and I didn't realise I lost my nerve until it came time to do the next race and I was hauling my car with a friend and I got about halfway and thought, 'You know, let's go play golf!'"
