SAN ANTONIO -- It was anything but a routine weekend for Funny Car racer Peter Gallen.

After opening the San Antonio Nitro Jam with a blistering shot right out of the box Friday night, Gallen’s weekend got progressively worse. First, too much power on Friday sent his “Poverty Stricken” Monza up in smoke in the Nitro Funny Car final, relegating him to a runner-up finish. Second, a hiccup in the timing system on Saturday forced him and his opponent to shut it off before getting to make a pass in round one. Third, Gallen was forced to turn his car around in limited time to compensate for the timing system error.

But when all was said and done, Gallen was able to make all of the necessary adjustments and turn a once-sour weekend into an Ironman trophy as the Broomall, Pa., native put together two incredible passes on Saturday to close the San Antonio Nitro Jam with an unexpected victory.

Joining Gallen in the winner’s circle on Saturday were Kyle Hough in Fuel Altered, Bruce Litton in Top Fuel, and Jay Turner in Nitro Harley. Sportsman winners during Day 1 of the Pro-Am Tour doubleheader were Kamron Wright (Top Sportsman), Lewis Cleveland (Top Dragster), Jimmy Hidalgo Jr. (Super Stock), Jimmy Hutton Jr. (Stock), Kyle Williams (Quick Rod), Laramie Reid (Super Rod), and Scooter Wilkins (Hot Rod).
