CORDOVA, IL. - Former Pro Stock driver Brian Gahm showed up as Roy Singleton's latest hired gun. Brian Gahm came to the IHRA Amalie Oil Summer Nationals in Cordova, Ill., with little seat time in Singleton's 1941 Willys, but proved to be able to handle the nitrous powered Pro Mod just like he did in the early-Nineties.

During Thursday's first qualifying session, Gahm had to shut it down early when the car got out of shape. Being the professional driver he is Gahm got back into it harder for his second attempt, making it into the show with a 6.439/218.94 run. Gahm's third attempt was a solid 6.459/215.72 run. The Majesty Homes team ultimately finished qualifying in the number eleven spot.

Gahm's eleventh seeding had him pairing up first round the number six qualifier Ronnie Hood.

Gahm took a slight starting line advantage, but was not quick enough to hold off the hard-charging Hood. Hood caught him quickly and drove by at the finish. Hood took the win with a 6.413/218.19 to Gahm's slower Jenkins' 6.486/214.83 Gahm and the rest of the Roy Singleton's Majesty Homes team will be at the upcoming CARQUEST Empire Nationals in Leicester, NY., July 14-16.
