Spiering ready for Grand Bend IHRA event
“There’s no excuses. I‘m going to be on my game plan”
JORDAN STATION, ONTARIO (July 19, 2007) – Carl Spiering his hoping his recent success will stay with him at the upcoming IHRA Mopar Canadian Nationals at the Grand Bend Motorplex in Grand Bend, Ontario July 20-22.
Driver of the Eaton Supercharged Chevrolet G-Force Race Cars Camaro, Spiering, of Jordan Station, ON, is running a limited schedule in this year’s International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) Knoll - Gas Nitro Jam Drag Racing Series in the tough and competitive Pro Modified class.
But at the recent Edmonton IHRA event, Spiering qualified the Eaton Road Warrior number two in the 21-car field with a 6.103-second, 234.37-mph run. And he got to the final but was beaten by a mere four feet.
“We were pleased with our performance in Edmonton,” stated the 42-year old Spiering. “Our ERD (Engine Research & Development) engine program has been very successful. We’ve got it where we want it, and we’re now going to concentrate on getting some winning laps with this hot rod.”
Spiering added he is confident even with the stout group of Pro Modifieds traditionally competing at Grand Bend; the team will do better than last year’s fifth qualifier and second round loss.
“We’ve got the equipment,” he said. “Right now there’s no excuses. I’m going to be on my game plan and drive my best.”
The IHRA Eighth Annual MOPAR Canadian Nationals presented by Castrol, the fifth event of the 11-race International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) Knoll - Gas Nitro Jam™ Drag Racing Series presented by Torco Racing Fuels, is scheduled for July 20-22 at the Grand Bend Motorplex.
