Spiering makes quickest Pro Mod field in IHRA history, loses in first round at Rockingham Dragway

"THERE IS NO QUESTION WE CAN MAKE THE POWER, THIS G-FORCE CAMARO IS AN AWESOME RACE CAR."

ROCKINGHAM, North Carolina (October 22, 2006) -- Despite another strong qualifying effort, this time at the IHRA World Finals in Rockingham, North Carolina, the Eaton Electrical Supercharged Pro Modified Chevrolet Camaro driven by Carl Spiering suffered a first round loss.

Carl Spiering Motorsports "We've been able to qualify the Eaton Road Warrior at every event this year, but our track record in eliminations has been very disappointing," said Spiering. "There is no question we can make the power, this G-Force Camaro is an awesome race car."

Spiering, the 41-year old driver from Jordan Station, Ontario lost in the first round of eliminations at Rockingham Dragway in the Universal Technical Institute World Finals, the final event of the 11-race IHRA eMax Nitro Jam Drag Racing Series this year, to Eddie Ware from Marietta, GA and his 1967 Camaro.

"Although our race luck was not there this year we want to emphasize our success at being one of the very few teams to qualify at each event. Our ERD engine program has gone three consecutive seasons with no failures," said Spiering. "The good news, we continue to lead the chase for the 2007

Torco Race Fuels Pro Modified Shootout," he added. "We have those bragging rights over all other teams."

Carl Spiering Motorsports The Torco Race Fuels Pro Modified class points are based on a team's final qualifying spot at each national event. The top eight in points will have the opportunity to participate in the 2007 Torco Race Fuels Pro Modified Shootout, which will be held at the IHRA Northern Nationals in Martin, Michigan.
