After Luke is injured during the qualifying jump for the derby, Boss Hogg hires Professor Crandall (Walker Edmiston) to hypnotize Luke into believing that the General Lee is no longer roadworthy the next time it breaks down, so that he will get rid of the General Lee, no matter who tries to stop him.
