Eaton Corporation’s Electrical Business (Canadian Operations) In Association with the West Coast Pro Modified Association Presents “Fast and Furious on the Fraser”

BURLINGTON, ONTARIO (January 26, 2007) - Eaton Corporation's electrical business (Canadian Operations) has announced the return to Mission Raceway Park in Mission, British Columbia with the West Coast Pro Mod Association.

“Fast and Furious on the Fraser”, presented by Eaton’s electrical business, manufacturers of Cutler-Hammer and Powerware brand-products, will be held Saturday, June 30 and Sunday, July 1, 2007.

“All of us at Eaton are thrilled to bring the excitement of West Coast Pro Modified drag racing to the terrific fans in British Columbia,” said Paul Tlustos, Marketing Communications Manager for Eaton’s electrical business (Canadian Operations). “Eaton is also extremely pleased to work with and support the hard efforts of the West Coast Pro Modified Association to bring the best in Pro Modified racing to Mission Raceway once again,” he added.

“Our staff, distributors, and customers are thrilled to hear of our return to Mission Raceway,” he went on to say. “British Columbia is an important part of Eaton’s marketing efforts and this is a terrific way for us to reward customers loyal to the Cutler-Hammer and Powerware brands. It’s also a terrific way to introduce those not familiar with Eaton products to our business.”

Mission Raceway’s favorable sea level altitude, new track surface and serene setting nestled amongst Canada’s Rocky Mountains is considered one of North America’s premiere drag racing locations. Mission Raceway Park has been the scene of many astonishing Pro Modified runs including many driver personal ET’s and MPH bests.

“British Columbia is beautiful, the fans at Mission are great, and the sea level altitude makes for excellent performance,” said Carl Spiering, driver of the Eaton Pro Modified Supercharged 1967 Chevrolet Camaro. “We set our personal best performance at Mission last year with a 6.03-second, 235.91 mph pass setting low ET time the last time we competed there.”

“The West Coast Pro Mod Association’s Fast and Furious on the Fraser Presented by Eaton will feature a 16 car field of the baddest door cars on the planet. It’s also a great opportunity for teams to compete in a WCPMA event and test in advance of the IHRA’s eMax Nitro Jam™ Drag Racing Series the following weekend in Edmonton, Alberta,” explained Joe Delehay, WCPMA Board Director and defending 2006 WCPMA Champion.

Mission Raceway Park, located on the Fraser River east of Vancouver, is owned and operated by the British Columbia Custom Car Association, Canada's oldest rod and custom car club established in 1952.
