RACE #1 LAS VEGAS ,MARCH 24,2013
Racing in Vegas is always a challenge due to the weather
conditions. This year..we had 50/60 mph wind gusts which caused the track to close down early on Saturday.'.....making "dial in" on Sunday a guessing game. However..Crew
Chief Edd, .....did a good job dialing the Demon and it ran consistant..giving us a 'RUNNER UP WINNER"!

RACE #2 & #3 REDDING,CA MAY 4,5,2013
Race #2 at Redding Dragstrip....was a little windy . The track had a few problems with the lights...and it was a long day...But very enjoyable. Not many KillerBees showed by for this race...but we filled our racing rounds by also participating in the PRO series, for the first time. We were "Runner Up" in the Slant 6 Killer Bee series giving us the lead for NATIONAL POINTS.
Racing in the Pro Race was a "new experience" for PJ. The Demon ran its numbers all day long...and PJ got enough good lights to give us the WIN in the PRO 's that day.
Sundays race was cancelled due to rain.
WE BLEW UP THE ENGINE AT THE STARTING LINE AT SAMOA DRAGSTRIP IN EUREKA,CA
WE WILL BE BACK WITH A "NEW ENGINE"!
