September 27th, 2014 - Chase Junghans Tackles Knoxville Nationals
1After a week away from the track, Chase Junghans traveled to Knoxville Raceway (Knoxville, Iowa) for the 11th Annual Knoxville Late Model Nationals at the famed, 1/2 mile oval.

A strong field for seventy-nine Super Late Models were on hand for the $7,000-to-win, preliminary event on Thursday night. Chase advanced to a third place finish in his heat race, earning him the eleventh starting spot for the 25 lap, preliminary feature. Junghans battled around the top ten early on before ultimately retiring to a disappointing 24th place finish.

In Friday's preliminary action Chase struggled in qualifying, which left him starting at the back of his heat race. He mounted a convincing charged to a fifth place finish, but only the top three finishers advanced, sending him to a b-main. Junghans battled the handle on his #18 entry during the b-main as he faded backwards, and ultimately failed to qualify for the 25 lap, $7,000-to-win preliminary feature.

Chase's efforts the two previous nights positioned him starting sixth in the b-main on Saturday evening. He advanced to a third place finish in the b-main, earning him 27th starting spot for the 100 lap, $40,000-to-win finale. Despite starting near the back of the pack, the Manhattan, Kansas ace charged through the field to record a solid ninth place finish.

During the course of the feature Jungahns battled around the top ten before settling to a fourteenth place finish in the final rundown.

Chase is currently second in the latest Rookie of the Year standings and tenth in the overall points. Complete results from the weekend can be found at www.WoOLMS.com
