Previewing the Brakes Plus Jet Car Nationals

Weekend Preview: Brakes Plus Jet Car Nationals

By Ronnie Kohrt

Join Bandimere Speedway for a night of jets, freedom, fireworks and great racing (and did we say jets?) on Saturday July 3rd for the Brakes Plus Jet Car Nationals. 

Jets invade Bandimere Speedway for a night under the lights with an incredible show strapped to four wheels. Jet engines power jet cars to over 250+mph and create sonic waves as the afterburners kick in to pack a punch on Thunder Mountain! 

Along with jets, several of Bandimere Speedway's racing series including the Madcap Racing Engines Fast 16, Get Biofuel Quick 16 and Fineline Series hit the race track.

Preliminary eliminations is at 12:30 for the MagnaFuel Super Series and the Corvette Connection Shootout Invitational and Titan Fast 16 will also speed down the quarter-mile. A full mix of racing from index, to bracket, to the Jr. Dragster program hosted at Bandimere Speedway. 

Pre-race ceremonies begin at 6:00pm and take the event up to showtime at 7:00pm when jets fly down the quarter-mile and soon, fireworks. 

One of the largest in Jefferson County, Bandimere Speedway lights up the sky at 9:45pm to a fireworks show coordinated to music and is one of the best shows around, all built into your ticket.

Ed 'The Outlaw" Jones also makes his appearance to Bandimere Speedway with the Candyland Stage Coach and Jelly Bean machine. 

The wheel-stander packs a 20 foot flame out of the back window and will travel the quarter-mile on two-wheels for the crowd to see. You will not want to miss it.

Also included in the celebration will be a moment for those who have fought for our freedom and a troop salute, along with a Wounded Warrior presentation and special shout out to all branches of the military.

Along with a ton of Brakes Plus prizes to the event, Beepee, the cherished and loved Volkswagen will also run the turtle race this year in hopes to capture the win over the elusive dragster! 

Fireworks end the evening at the Brakes Plus Jet Car Nationals and boy do we have a show for you...
