Carlisle Chevrolet Nationals to Perform ‘Bandit Jump’

What self-respecting car nut doesn’t love the classic film Smokey and the Bandit?

Well, to commemorate the 42nd anniversary of the release of the movie, and honor it’s recently passed star, Burt Reynolds, the Carlisle Chevrolet Nationals and Northeast Ohio Dukes will replicate something never seen before.

On June 22, a Bandit Trans Am will replicate the jump over a downed bridge as seen in the movie, courtesy of the professionals from Northeast Ohio Dukes. The “Bandit Jump” is set to happen at 1 p.m. sharp.

Carlisle Events is offering a VIP Family 4-Pack of tickets for just $69, including general parking, entry for 4 and entry into the coveted VIP jump zone for the best lines of sight, photos, video and more.  This package is the only way to enjoy VIP access to the jump.  VIP Packages are limited and will be sold on a first come first serve basis.

The jump is one of many great features coming to Carlisle and the Chevrolet Nationals.  Planned is a 60th Anniversary celebration of the El Camino, the 50th Birthday of the Blazer, the 50th birthday of the GTO Judge and much more.

In addition, Carlisle will host Hurst branded cars as part of a special Hurst Showcase.  The showcase includes Hurst specific showfield classes, a featured vehicle display under a tent, Hurst products and memorabilia on display, seminars, special guests and more.  

Joining the Hurst Showcase will be an all-new Chevy Trucks feature.  The Chevy/GMC Truck Madness comes to Carlisle and will celebrate all Chevy and GMC Trucks from 1947 to 1987.  This special judged event takes place June 21-22 and includes 21 new classes as part of a professionally judged showfield.  This includes special categories for classic Chevrolet Cameos, GMC, Suburbans, NAPCO Four-Wheel-Drive trucks and more!
