EPPING, NH (September 10, 2006) -- Carl Spiering's day ended with a first round loss in the final day of eliminations Sunday at the International Hot Rod (IHRA) eMax Drag Racing Series Amalie Oil North American Nationals at New England Dragway in Epping, New Hampshire.

Spiering was eliminated from Pro Modified action by Danny Rowe from Rossville, GA in a 1963 Corvette.

"We are pleased how well we continue to qualify at each of the races, and like many others in the first round we misjudged how good the race track was," explained Spiering, from Jordan Station, Ontario. "I'm continuing to work on my starting line technique but lady luck has just not been our side."

The 41-year-old Spiering drove the Carl Spiering Motorsports Eaton Electrical Pro Modified Chevrolet Camaro to third position in Torco Race Fuels CompetitionPlus Pro Modified qualifying and continues to lead the Torco Race Fuels Pro Modified Shootout Point Standings.

"The Eaton Road Warrior is continuing its way east to Miramichi Dragway Park in Bellefond, New Brunswick as part of the Ultimate Power trip in Atlantic Canada," Spiering added. "When we finish the eastern tour we will run at home in Cayuga for the rain delayed IHRA Canadian Nationals."

The next International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) eMax Drag Racing Series event of the season the Fifth Annual Canadian Nationals will take place September 22-24 at Toronto Motorsports Park in Cayuga, Ontario.
