Has Uncharacteristic Weekend
Creek, Maryland. - Carl "Big Dog" Spiering and his
Eaton Cutler-Hammer 63 Corvette Pro Mod had an uncharacteristic
weekend at the IHRA Torco Race Fuels Presidents Cup Nations
in Budds Creek, Maryland.
Spiering, who has most definitely been having the most successful
year of his career, struggled at the Budds Creek race. He
stated, "We were fighting gremlins in the clutch can.
The car was just really unhappy. I drove it to the edge and
just could not get it to go any better until we figured out
the problem after Saturday's night session. I left the same
set up in it for first round on Sunday and I thought it would
hold on, but it was just too aggressive. Like they say in
racing, everything changes in around six seconds". We'll
get it straightened out for Rockingham and be back on our
Spiering will head to Rockingham for the IHRA World Finals
presented by Bethesda Softworks 4th place in National Points,
less than one round out of 3rd place driver Jim Halsey. Crew
Chief Terry Vince states, "We love to race at Rockingham.
We did very well there last year and hopefully can do the
same again this year. Rockingham is always fast and we will
all be shooting at a New World Record, so it will be very
exciting. If the weather is right, it will go even lower.
You can bet on that".
The action gets underway on Friday, October 7 and continues
through until Sunday, October 9. Stay tuned to see if the
records are smashed once again.
