Spiering shook the tires hard allowing opponent Glen Kerunsky
to advance to the finals. Second generation Pro Modified racer
Scott Cannon went on to defeat Kerunsky in the finals.
“It was a great weekend for the Eaton Road Warrior,
the weather was beautiful, the conditions were great and the
track was breathtaking,” explained Carl Spiering. “Eaton
Electrical entertained over 375 guests this weekend and we
had a good time meeting all of the great people who were here
cheering us on. Even though we didn’t win the event
we gathered more data that will help us fine tune our IHRA
National Event setup. The more I drive the car the more I
feel that this Eaton Road Warrior Pro Modified Camaro is trick.
I love it.”
“We are in great shape for the IHRA race in Edmonton
this weekend,” added Spiering, from Jordan Station,
Ontario. Eaton has us doing some personal appearances this
week then it’s off to the track in Edmonton where we
plan to better our amazing performance.”
