January 19th, 2014 - Junghans Continues Competition in Winter Extreme
1Chase Junghans resumed action in the 2nd Annual Winter Extreme at Tucson International Raceway (Tucson, Arizona) on Friday night with a $3,000-to-win event. The night started on a strong note for Junghans as he qualified fastest in his group to earn the pole for his heat race. However, from there his luck headed downhill as officials deemed that he jumped the start in his heat race and put him back a row. A few laps later as he battled for the lead he made contact with RC Whitwell, which resulted in a broken front end as he slowed to the infield. Junghans started on the tail of a b-main, but would fall two spots short of advancing to a transfer spot as his night ended early.

The team looked to bounce back on Saturday as a $5,000-to-win program was contested. Unfortunately it would prove to be another tough outing as struggles in qualifying left Chase starting deep in his heat race grid. He would advance a few spots in his heat race and his b-main, but failed to reach a transfer spot to the feature in either event as his night ended on a disappointing note.

The weekend at Tucson drew to a close on Sunday evening with a $10,000-to-win event that drew a field of 52 entries. After qualifying 2nd fastest in his group Chase finished 2nd in his heat race to lock into the 8th starting spot for the 50 lap finale. With passing being difficult on a narrow track Junghans would only manage to advance a single spot to a 7th place finish. Overall it was a strong ending to the week.
