1
DJ continued his early season schedule as he participated in the 7-race Arizona Mod Tour, which took place at 4 cities across the state of Arizona during the early part of February. The series kicked off on February 8th at the Arizona Speedway in Queen Creek, AZ. 92 IMCA Modified competitors checked in for action on the opening night of the tour and DJ had a rough start to the tour with dnf's in both his heat race and his b-main.

The tour continued on February 9th at Arizona Speedway with another hearty field of competitors. DJ was able to muster a 7th place finish in his heat race but then fell out of the b-main, ending his night early.

Sunday night, the tour moved to the Central Arizona Speedway in Casa Grande, Az and DJ battled the field to a fourth place finish in his heat race, followed up by a 3rd place run in his bmain but then fell out of the main, being credited with a 25th place finish officially.

Night #4 of the tour was held Monday night at the Central Arizona Speedway and DJ ran sixth in his heat race before retiring early from the night's b-main, ending his night a bit early.

After a night off, the tour moved to the Canyon Speedway Park in Peoria, AZ for the fifth leg of the week-long mini-series with DJ finished fourth in his heat race, but again, suffered some trouble in the night's b-main, ending his bid to qualify for the main event with a dnf.

After practice night at the newly re-opened USA Raceway in Tucson, AZ was rained out, night #6 kicked off with DJ having his best run of the tour, posting a pair of third place finishes. DJ raced from 8th to third in his heat and then started fifth in the main and came home with a solid third place finish in the main event as well.

The 7th and final night of the tour was back at USA Raceway and saw DJ storming from 10th to 5th in his heat race, before winning the b-main from his 7th starting spot and earning the 17th starting spot in the night's main event. In the feature, DJ made his way forward toward the top ten, but ended his night and the tour with a dnf.
