Moonshine & Thunder - The Junior Johnson Story

Moonshine & Thunder - The Junior Johnson Story

Play, Comedy/Drama, Drama
A North Carolina story of Moonshine & NASCAR, Moonshine & Thunder - The Junior Johnson Story, is a multi-media outdoor drama that uses both film and live actors to tell the story. The show begins with Junior Johnson as a boy and shows how his growing up years steeped in mountain tradition, were influenced by fast cars and running liquor. The play takes attendees through the beginnings of The North Wilkesboro Speedway - from cow pasture to race track - and Junior's evolution from out running the law to out running everything on that track. The production ends with Johnson's first big win in Daytona. Peppered with Wilkes County stories, Moonshine and NASCAR history, the show offers vintage automobiles, footage from the North Wilkesboro Speedway & Darlington, and tells personal stories from Junior Johnson himself. The story is written by Karen Reynolds. Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. each evening and the gate begins Will Call and selling tickets at 6:30 p.m. Bleu Moon Productions will have soft drinks, chips, popcorn and candy for sale beginning at 6:30 p.m. each evening.
