Marne, MI -- Berlin Raceway will be invaded by residents of West Monroe, Louisiana later this summer when cast members of Duck Dynasty comes in to town for a visit to sign autographs and to be the Grand Marshalls of the August 3 event.
Duck Dynasty is a reality show that features the lives of the Robertson family and their business Duck Commander which makes products for duck hunters. They are as famous for their products as they are for their beards. Millions of people tune in each week watch Phil, Willie, Si, Jase and their family and friends live, work and play. Duck Dynasty debuted in March of 2012 and has been gaining steam ever since; season 4 is set to hit the airwaves later this summer.
“We are very excited that Duck Dynasty is coming to Berlin Raceway,” said Mike Bursley, General Manager. “They get hundreds of requests per week and the fact that they chose Berlin speaks to the fame of the race track. This is great news for Grand Rapids and we are thrilled to be bringing in such great role models. Additionally, we want to be able to use the facility as more than just a racetrack and brining in the Duck Dynasty crew is just the tip of the iceberg. With all of the renovations that have been made to the facility in the past and the ones that are on tap for the 2014 season, we hope to do more things like this in the future.”
