The 41-year-old Spiering crashed the Carl Spiering Motorsports Eaton Electrical Pro Modified Chevrolet Corvette in the quarterfinals at the Amalie Oil Texas Nationals at San Antonio Raceway March 26 in Texas. The Camaro will be replacing the Corvette:

"A 200 mph trip into the wall is not my idea of how to begin the season. We had some terrible luck and got beat up pretty bad in San Antonio. I will be fine and the Eaton Electrical team will rebound stronger than ever."

Spiering was taken to hospital after the incident and released the same night with broken ribs, bumps, and bruises:

"We had big corporate plans for the introduction of the new Camaro with Eaton. The situation at Texas changed all of those plans and we immediately started to get the new Eaton Road Warrior ready for the next race."

Eaton Electrical has given us the necessary backing to do this right and we thank them for it and all our other associate sponsors who have all contributed to our success in the past and continue to support us, giving the effort all the tools to create a great team."

With a serious passion for fast machines in any type of competition, Carl Spiering is quickly becoming one of the hottest Pro Modified racers on the drag race circuit: "We are looking forward to starting the new season. Our car is better, our people are better, the attitudes are better, everything is just better."
