Carl Spiering ready for IHRA Motor City Nationals

Innovative new transmission in Eaton Cutler-Hammer
Pro Modified provides renewed confidence

CarlJORDAN STATION, ONTARIO (May 22, 2008) - The Pro Modified drag racing team of Carl Spiering  Motorsports is planning to have a successful outing for the International Hot Rod Association’s Motor City Nationals at Milan Dragway in Michigan May 23 to 25.

The team recently competed with a new Bruno's Automotive BRT Converter Drive coupled to a Lenco transmission with a torque converter supplied by Coan Engineering, and the car met all expectations.

Carl Spiering, driver of the Eaton Cutler-Hammer sponsored 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, is quite excited about competing in the IHRA’s stout Torco Pro Modified field at Milan Dragway.

“We were able to get enough laps to know this is going to be a great combination,” noted Spiering. ““I’m confident this new set-up with our ERD 526-cubic inch Supercharged Hemi will be more competitive.”

Running in the rain-shorted Pro Modified Racing Association opener at Toronto Motorsports Park in Cayuga, Ontario last weekend, the Eaton Cutler-Hammer Team was able to post very competitive eighth-mile times in qualifying.  The event was postponed due to inclement weather, but Spiering set low elapsed time of the meet.

The Motor City Nationals is the third event in the 11-race Knoll-Gas Motorsports Nitro Jam schedule for 2008. For more information regarding this event, go to, or

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.
