We did go to the quarter finals inSlant6 racing and to the semi finals in Sportsman racing. Wendy Pines is now our points leader...making 4 West coast racers challenged for the win and the National Championship. We are ready!!

click to read Post review.
We couldn't have planned a more exciting finale if we had tried. The East coast is OUT...It is all up to the top 5 contenders on the West Coast...to be decided at THIS Redding Race. Going into the race Wendy Pine is #1...but she goes out the first round..as did Richard Berkjlund who was #2, #3 racer Andrew Howard unable to attend this race, #5 contender CJ Stoakes also OUT......PJ wins Rd1, then Rd 2...she needs to win Rd3 to tie Wendy....but not to be....
Wendy Pine is new National Champion, PJ comes in #2. 2nd. First women to ever rank in the top 10 nationally.
What an awesome racing year!! Thanks to all the Slant6ers', fans, friends, and wonderful husband, and crew chief, Edd Jesiolowski we will be back...........

2011 was an amazing year for us: follow our travels and share the experience ..
RACE #2 AND #3... SACRAMENTO RACEWAY, SACRAMENTO,CA. MAY 5 & 6, 2012
We started our season at Sacramento without our RedDemon.....borrowing a car to make the race and salvage some points. Edd put in plugs, points, etc..and we were off to the races! It was a long....and exciting weekend.
A NHRA National event with over 350 cars participating. We won Saturday giving us 41 points,...Sunday, we went out first round, for 1 point.
SLANT 6 DRAG RACING SERIES (Killer Bees Racing) 2012
Saturday race: PJ-Winner,
Runner up: Allen Dutra
Our season has got off to a slow start , BUT, we don't "Give up, Give In, OR lose Faith"! We were unable to make the Woodburn Race on June 23 & 24 . Crew Chief, Edd Jesiolowski continues to work out the problems and has added some impressive new features to the "Demon".We are currently #6 in points for the Western States Killer Bees...and plan to improve that position in the next 2 races at SAMOA DRAGSTRIP, EUREKA, CA on July 14 & 15.
RACE #4 AND #5... WOODBURN DRAGSTRIP, WOODBURN, OR. JUNE 23 & 24, 2012
SUNDAY WAS THE INLINER/SLANT6 RACE.WE TOOK FIRST,BUT NO POINTS.
Slant6 & Inliner.
RACE #6 AND #7...SAMOA DRAGSTRIP, EUREKA, CA. JULY 14, & 15, 2012
Edd worked on the Demon way into the night...but we were able to make it to Samoa Dragstrip, hook up with old friends, and enjoy a dinner at theSamoa Cookhouse on Friday night. Next day we made a couple runs but not adjusted to the new improvements in the car and "no seat time" so far this year. We did win one round. Sunday was much better. Car definitely ran great! We will call this one a "Test and tune" and head for Medford next month. Aric Erickson from Chico won both days. Buddy and National Champion, Wendy Pine and PJ came away tied in the points at 54 each. Not bad under the circumstances...but it won't win any championships!
A little "R&R" with food!
New "Air Shifter". Sounds like a gun going off
as you go down the strip.
SCROLL DOWN FOR 2011/2012 RACE RESULTS..........................
RACE #8 AND #9...WOODBURN DRAGSTRIP, WOODBURN,OR. AUG.11 & 12, 2012
It was "hot..hot..hot" at Woodburn..including the weather, the CARS, and the RACERS!!..but as always, ..good times! A fellow Slant 6 Racer from Virginia (Lou Madson) joined the "Killer Bees" for a weekend of
racing AND raced away with a win on Sunday.WE WON THE SATURDAY RACE...AND WENT A COUPLE ROUNDS
ON SUNDAY GIVING US 106 IN POINTS AND placing us in the #2 SPOT IN THE NATIONAL POINTS CHASE.
directly to Medford for the next 2 day race before returning to California.

BEAUTIFUL WEATHER..PARKED UNDER THE TREES WITH A LITTLE "BREEZE". Unfortunately..our year didn't end as we planned. We went out 1st round both days. Having only attended 1/2 of the scheduled races this year.. WE FEEL LUCKY TO END UP #4 IN THE WESTERN STATES KILLER BEES SLANT SIX POINTS RACE FOR 2012 AND ..... #5 IN THE NATIONAL POINTS.
TOP 10 "kILLER BEES" POINTS LEADERS FOR 2012

FIRST RACE: Las Vegas Race (Mopars at the strip) March 24th, 2013..
The winds were 50/60 mph at the STRIP, but calmed down on Sunday
for the Slant6 Race. The DEMON ran great and we came home with the
"RUNNER UP TROPHY". We only got a couple runs at Sacramento the
weekend before...so need a few more TnT before the May Redding, CA race.
VIVA' LAS VEGAS!!--First Slant 6 race of the year Mar. 24,2013
Slant 6 Race #2 and #3 @ Redding Dragstrip, Redding Ca. May 4 & 5, 2013
We were to anxious to get to Redding for a 2 day race to see what the "Demon" could do this year! It was very windy Saturday...kinda like VEGAS! We had a very small turnout of Slant 6 Killer Bee racers which was a little disappointing...so we decided to try our luck in the "PRO" series race...along with out Slant 6 Race. I Don't know if we will do that again....it is kind of like being on a "merry go round". Everything goes so fast and if you are winning rounds (which we were)...there is not much time for the car to cool down. The Demon ran so close to its' numbers that it was hard to believe. We got some good lights and finished 2nd (Runner Up) in the Slant 6 series....which technically places us Number one in the Nation in points......until more races are run. We REALLY enjoyed participating in the PRO race .....as we were the WINNER!!!!
June 2 & 3 ,2013
Pro series race-Redding Dragstrip,Ca
We needed to get a couple test & tunes to get ready for the Woodburn Slant 6 Race in June...so we raced the PRO series in Redding. PJ's lights were awesome! The Demon ran the numbers all weekend, we went to the semi finals but lost with a .005 red light!
NO RACING THIS WEEKEND JUNE 14, 2013...SO WE TOOK THE DEMON TO IT'S FIRST BIG CAR SHOW.......AND....WON
"BEST MODIFIED/STOCK" AWARD!
The crowds loved hearing the engine and seeing all the extras and the workmanship that Edd puts in his cars.
..OOPS!!!!! Blew up the engine on the starting line at Samoa Dragstrip @ Eureka, Ca...........THAT ENDS OUR SEASON FOR THIS YEAR!!! We will be back with new engine..;new attitude...and a "new adventure".
