CarlCarl Spiering to test at South Georgia Motorsports Park

Valdosta kick-starts 2008 Eaton Ultimate Power Trip VII

JORDAN STATION, ONTARIO (March 6, 2008) – Carl Spiering will participate at this week’s Ninth Annual CSR Eastern Spring Test Nationals presented by Torco's hosted by South Georgia Motorsports Park in Valdosta, Georgia.

“I’m looking forward to getting the new season started and we’re hoping for a strong performance at Valdosta,” said Spiering. “Then we’re on our way to the Gatornationals.”

The early-season testing will be the debut of the new Eaton Cutler-Hammer Tim McAmis Race Cars-manufactured 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Pro Modified.

“Our new McAmis Corvette is one nice hot-rod and we proved at the end of last season that we have the power to run fast,” explained the 43 year-old Spiering.

Spiering’s entry is powered by an ERD (Engine Research & Development) 526-cubic inch Supercharged Hemi, built and maintained at the ERD facility in Jordan Station, Ontario, Canada.

“The strategy is to work out the little challenges of a new car, but I’m confident that won’t take long. I’ve got a great team, a great sponsor and the best equipment anyone could ask for,” he said. “Sounds simple I know, but it’s like the old saying about surrounding yourself with good people.”

Eaton Corporation's electrical business (Canadian Operations) will provide the primary sponsorship of drag racing veteran Carl Spiering for the seventh consecutive year.

The Carl Spiering Motorsports Team, will compete at selected International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) events in Torco’s Pro Modified category, National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) events in the JEGS ProMod Challenge Series, and Pro Modified Racing Association (PMRA) events and venues, which will serve the marketing needs of Eaton's electrical business.
