MECHANICSVILLE, MARYLAND (July 8th, 2019) – One of the fan favorite events returns to Maryland International Raceway ™ (MDIR) this Saturday, July 13th, 2019. The 41st Annual Jet Wars continues to impress while being the longest running event in the history of MDIR.

This year’s Jet Wars event brings three never-before-seen vehicles at MDIR. Both of the Jet Semi Trucks, Boneshaker and Homewrecker, are making their first ever appearance at MDIR. The Eastern Raider will also be making its first appearance to MDIR. Add in the returning Jet Funny cars, First Strike and Top Secret, along with the Jet Dragster, The Beast from the East, we are just scratching the surface of what this year’s Jet Wars could be.

While we do have three new vehicles coming to MDIR, two of them have had interesting paths to MDIR. The Homewrecker Jet Semi Truck was recently rebuilt from a nasty fire that happen just a few months ago. Jerry McCart and the McCart Jet Motorsports crew worked on the truck day and night to get the Homewrecker truck back to pristine condition. The team was able to get everything loaded and arrived a few days early for the event. This team deserves a lot of recognition for their ability to get this truck back fully operational in such a short amount of time.

The Eastern Raider is a new Jet Dragster out of the Hanna Motorsports camp. This machine will be piloted by Josh Graham. The Eastern Raider is replacing the Queen of Diamonds II, which was involved in an accident back in 2018. The Queen of Diamonds was not able to be repaired and the Eastern Raider was reborn. The name of the dragster may sound familiar as this dragster was previously part of the Hanna Motorsports jet team.

This year’s Jet Wars event will have plenty of Jet action. Plus, with the savings from the coupon, there are plenty of reasons to make your way down to The Creek for this year’s Jet Wars! The Jet and Thrill show kicks off at 7pm. Gates open at 11am. We hope to see you here!
