Fifty-two Super Late Models were registered for battle, and the night started with Junghans drawing the sixth starting spot for his heat. However, he would slip backwards to a seventh place finish, which left him short of locking into the 30 lap finale. Chase started tenth in his b-main and charged forward to a fifth place finish. Unfortunately, only the top four finishers transferred to the main event as his night came to an early end.

The team looked to bounce back on Saturday as another $3,000-to-win program was contested with fifty-two entrants. Unfortunately it would prove to be another tough outing as Chase fell short of locking into the feature via heat race action and had to run a b-main. Things would only get worse for Junghans in the b-main when he was caught up in a multi-car melee that brought his night to an early end, after racing into a transfer position from his tenth starting spot.

The week-long trek in Tucson drew to a close on Sunday evening with a $10,000-to-win event that drew a field of fifty entries to the 3/8 mile oval. Chase slipped from his front-row starting spot to a third place finish in his heat race, sending him to a b-main. He went on to win the b-main from second, locking him into the eighteenth starting position on the feature grid. In the 50 lap finale, Junghans battled for position early on before ultimately retiring to a 21st place finish in the final rundown.

Fifty Super Late Models entered the $3,000-to-win event, and Junghans night began by drawing the ninth starting spot for his heat race. With passing points determining the transfers, Chase charged from ninth to a third place finish locking him into the fourth starting position for the 30 lap feature. Junghans battled throughout the top five for much of the main event before securing a podium finish in the closing laps when he slipped passed Billy Moyer Jr. for a third place performance behind race winner, Darrell Lanigan and Billy Moyer.

On Sunday afternoon a $5,000-to-win purse was posted, and Chase's outing started with him once again drawing a high number at pill draw, pinning him deep in a heat race. He went on to overcome his seventh place starting spot, charging forward to a solid second place finish to lock into the fifth starting spot for 30 lap finale. Junghans battled amongst the top five early on in the feature before settling to a tenth place finish in the final rundown.

Wednesday night's program was headlined by a $3,000-to-win event that drew a field of forty-six entries to the 3/8 mile oval. Junghans started his night by drawing the third starting spot for the first heat race. He went on to register a third place finish which locked him into the sixteenth starting position for the feature. During the course of the 30 lap main event, Chase advanced four spots to a twelfth place finish at the checkered flag.
