Chase Junghans Enjoys Best-Career Dirt Late Model Dream Performance
Looks Ahead to WoO Firecracker 100 Weekend at Lernerville
Manhattan, Kansas (06/10/19) – Chase Junghans’ season of momentum and consistency carried over into the weekend’s Dirt Late Model Dream at Eldora Speedway in his Shop Quik Convenience Stores #18 Bozard Ford Lincoln/XR1 Rocket Chassis/ Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model.
After starting the weekend with a 14th-place finish on Thursday night, he raced to a fourth place finish in Friday night’s preliminary feature, and then ended his weekend with a sixth-place finish on Saturday.
“It was a great weekend for us, and honestly I thought it was even better than it turned out to be,” Junghans revealed. “We passed two cars on the final lap on Saturday night, but since they called the caution after the leaders got together past the checkered flag, they went back to lap 99, where we were sixth. It’s pretty disappointing and is about a $2,500 swing for us, but I guess it is what it is.
“Apart from that I couldn’t be more proud of our team. We have come so far, and we are truly a contender every time that we unload now. There’s been a lot of hard work and sleepless nights for everyone. Because of this total effort our performance on the track has never been better. Hopefully we can head into the Firecracker at Lernerville in two weeks and come away with our biggest win yet.”
On Thursday evening Chase Junghans was one of 92 Super Late Model competitors registered at Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, Ohio) for the 25th annual Dirt Late Model Dream. Gaining two spots in his heat race, Junghans recorded a third-place finish, which positioned him 13th on the starting grid for the $10,000-to-win preliminary feature. Dropping one spot in the 25-lap affair, Chase posted a 14th-place outing.
Returning on Friday for another round of preliminary features, Chase recorded the third-fastest lap in his time trial group before streaking to a 10-lap heat race victory. Starting the feature in fifth, Junghans jumped up one spot to place fourth behind Shane Clanton, Chris Ferguson, and Ross Bailes with Don O’Neal rounding out the Top 5.
Wrapping up the 25th annual Dirt Late Model Dream on Saturday night, Junghans secured his spot into the $125,000-to-win finale with the third-and-final transfer spot in his heat race. Rolling off 18th, Chase advanced through the field 14 spots to record an apparent fourth-place finish. However, due to a caution that ensued after the leaders crossed the checkered flag, the running order reverted back to lap 99, where Junghans ran in the sixth position.
