Going for "IT"
Station, Ontario - Carl "Big Dog" Spiering
and his Eaton Cutler-Hammer 63 Corvette Pro Mod head back
to the track where he obtained his first career "Iron
Man". Budds Creek, Maryland will host the IHRA Torco
President's Cup this coming weekend September 23-25. Spiering,
who has been either winning or setting performance records
at all recent national event races, is looking to do the same
at Maryland International Raceway. Carl stated, "I love
this place. It's just one of those racetracks that feels good
to go to. I have always done well here and got my first national
event win here in 2003. I'm really looking forward to running
in the awesome conditions that this racetrack brings. At Epping
we were just starting to figure out what the Eaton Cutler-Hammer
hot rod really likes in "Good Air". I will have
more for them this weekend. I really want to get the national
Spiering is hot off of a 6.107 sec run at Epping two weeks
ago. That run was just .005 from equaling the present World
Record of 6.102 set by Al Billes at Rockingham in Oct of 2004.
A win and an ET record would put Spiering in contention for
a World Championship bid when all teams pull into the World
Finals at Rockingham in October. Crew Chief Terry Vince states,
"We are just taking things one day at a time right now.
I personally do not want to get caught up in thinking about
anything but the next task at hand. If it gets to that point,
we will think about it as a team at that point. We have had
a great year anyway you look at it and I'm proud of that".
Team Eaton Cutler-Hammer will be poised and ready for an assault
on the record book until the last pass of the year. The action
gets underway on Friday September 23, 2005 at Maryland International
Raceway. Stay tuned to carlspieringmotorsports.com and ihra.com
