Bo and Luke have left Hazzard to fulfill a lifelong dream of racing on the NASCAR Circuit. Boss Hogg is so happy about it that he unleashes his ultimate secret weapon: the Mean Green Machine. It is a monstrous vehicle which is part of Boss Hogg's plan to rob the Bank of Capitol City. But the robbery of the Bank of Capitol City is just a test run of the Mean Green Machine. Boss's actual plan for the Mean Green Machine is much bigger than a bank robbery. Boss and two men that he hired, Josh Scroggins (William Russ) and Hatfield (Mitch Carter), have a money printing press hidden away, and they have the right paper to print money on, but they need engraving plates to print the money with. An armored truck that will be passing through Hazzard County has U.S. Mint plates in it that will print $100 dollar bills, and Boss plans to have Scroggins and Hatfield use the Mean Green Machine to hijack the armored truck so that they can get the plates. But Boss is unaware that Bo and Luke's cousins Coy and Vance have returned to Hazzard after a six-year absence, to help Jesse and Daisy run the Duke farm.
