Looking to "Rock" at the Rock
Ontario, Canada - Carl "Big Dog" Spiering and
his Eaton Cutler-Hammer 63 Corvette Pro Mod are looking forward
to IHRA World Finals presented by Bethesda Softworks in Rockingham,
North Carolina. Spiering, who has had a career season, loves
racing at Rockingham and wants to end his season on a high
note. He states, "The conditions at "The Rock"
are usually awesome and the performances are great as well.
Last year we ran a 6.12 sec-run and hopefully we can improve
on that. I know we have the team to contend for the World
Record, but those words are more easily said than done. It
will be a great event regardless. The Eaton Cutler-Hammer
team just needs to focus on one run at a time. If we do that
we will have a successful weekend".
Spiering heads into Rockingham 4th in National Points standings.
Less than one round of competition separates him from 3rd
place Jim Halsey. One has to wonder where the team would be
if they had not skipped the first three races of the season.
Crew Chief Terry Vince comments by stating, "Everything
happens for a reason. Our decision to stay home in the beginning
of the year was one made at the end of last year. We wanted
to get our racing operation to be able to compete on the level
we have. Obviously we accomplished what we set out to do,
so we as a team cannot dwell on that fact. This team has had
a great season and we look forward to Rockingham and improving
our program over the off-season".
After an uncharacteristic outing at Budds Creek, the team
is looking to have another performance like earlier in the
year at Toronto or Martin. Stay tuned to see if the "Big
Dog" barks at the World Finals.
