Carl Spiering Motorsports Eaton Electrical Corvette in solid position after first day qualifying in Texas
SAN ANTONIO, TX (March 24, 2006) -- Carl Spiering holds down ninth position after two rounds of qualifying at the Amalie Oil Texas Nationals in the International Hot Rod (IHRA) eMax Drag Racing Series in San Antonio, Texas at San Antonio Raceway on Friday.
Driving the Carl Spiering Motorsports, www.carlspiering.com, Eaton Electrical Supercharged Pro Modified Chevrolet Corvette Spiering ran 6.148 seconds elapsed time at 233.32 miles per hour to sixth spot in the first round of qualifying for the Torco Race Fuels Pro Modified field under partly cloudy 73-degree skies.
Spiering aborted the second run of qualifying while up against Glen Kerunsky. Both drivers launched, shook the tires, headed toward the centerline, and shut down before they came into contact with each other.
"The Eaton Road Warrior was real smooth in the first run," said Spiering, who hails from Jordan Station, ON. "We found some extra horsepower in the Eaton Electrical Corvette over the winter and we tried for a better shot in the second round and shook the tires."
"The guys will go over the car tonight. This is a tuff league with great competitors but my guys are good, real good," Spiering added. "We'll be in good shape for next rounds on Saturday."
Pro Modified qualifying will continue on Saturday afternoon and Saturday night with the third and forth round before the final eliminations on Sunday.
