MARTIN, MICHIGAN (August 4, 2007) – Carl Spiering driving the Eaton Supercharged Pro Modified Chevrolet Camaro secured fourth position during the final qualifying session at the Knoll Gas Motorsports Park’s IHRA Torco Racing Fuels Northern Nationals.

“We shook the tires in round one of qualifying on Friday, then red-lighted on an aborted run in the first round of the Torco’s Pro Mod Shootout against Dan Rowe,” said Spiering. “That really put us behind the eight ball, on the outside looking in with only one shot to make the field.”

“Things haven’t been going our way the last couple of weeks, added Spiering, I’m really proud of my Eaton Road Warrior guys, they rebounded like real pros putting us solidly in the show on the final attempt of qualifying with a 6.109-second, 234.41-mph lap.”

“We get another shot at Danny (Rowe) on Sunday,” explained Spiering, the 42-year old driver from Jordan Station, Ontario. “And I’ll be on my game he won’t get away with another one.”

The Carl Spiering Motorsports entry will face Danny Rowe’s 1963 Corvette from Rossville, GA in the first round of the final eliminations on Sunday starting at 11:00 a.m. EST.
