When Shane’s wife Kristen Ashby arrived on the scene, she also jumped into the sport of drag racing in a big way. Drag racers at the higher levels have to test and license in their class to prove that they can handle the machine they want to run. Kristen became licensed in the Pro Stock Bike class and as far as we know, she is the only lady in Canada to ever have done so. Kristen runs a completely custom built Hayabusa styled Pro Stock bike with a 1755 CC Vance & Hines built engine. Pro Stock is not bracket racing, it is straight up, heads up drag racing. The Ashby’s raced in places like Denver, Indianapolis, Las Vegas and of course Medicine Hat. Kristen has made it down the 1/4 mile in 7.16 seconds at 184 mp/h and if that doesn’t amaze you, think about this, it wasn’t that long ago that extreme high performance cars were bragging about getting from 0-60 in 6 seconds while Kristen does zero to nearly 200 mp/h in slightly over seven seconds, and this is sitting on top of a motorbike, not siting in a car.


Shane’s son Brendan just graduated from high school with a Proficiency in Mechanics award for his work in Mechanics class and he has now started working in a local mechanic shop. I would say Brendan’s apprenticeship actually started at the age of eight when he started racing a junior dragster. This will be Brendan’s last year in the Junior Dragster, he is third in points and has made it to the finals twice this year, once taking the win and once as a runner up. Brendan is also racing his 90 Chev 1/2 ton with a tuned port 350. Things are really taking off for Brendan. A local collector keeps him as busy as he wants to be in the evenings by helping maintain the private collection and as his skills widen, others will be calling.
