Junkyard Dog's first ever match was against Dark Steel. In the beginning of the match, both robots went straight at each other and missed. Both robots turned around and both robots set up to go straight at each other again, but Dark Steel was moving slower and the left motor was burning out. After a collision between both robots, Dark Steel was moving around in circles and Junkyard Dog got underneath Dark Steel. Junkyard Dog was unable to move due to its inability to get traction on its rear drive wheel and Dark Steel's left motor started smoking. Team Dark Forces was tapping out and Junkyard Dog won by KO. This win put Junkyard Dog to the final preliminary round, where it faced DiamondBack.
Junkyard Dog won by KO and advanced to the TV rounds, where it faced Serial Box Killer. Serial Box Killer won on a close 24-21 judge's decision and Junkyard Dog was eliminated from the tournament.
Because it lost in the round of 64, Junkyard Dog couldn't participate the lightweight consolation rumble at the end of the tournament.
After receiving two byes, Junkyard Dog was already at the TV rounds, where it faced Rolling Blackout. Rolling Blackout was only going approximately half speed and caught itself on the killsaws, flipping it onto its back. Rolling Blackout was being counted out and Junkyard Dog won by TKO. This win put Junkyard Dog to the round of 32, where it faced the Season 1.0 lightweight champion Backlash.
Both robots moved to the center of the arena, with their blades spinning, and Backlash drove over to the side of Junkyard Dog and caught the side frame support, flinging Junkyard Dog into the air. After the impact, both robots seemed immobile. Jim Smentowski flipped his controller over and hit the 'robot reset' button on the IFI, and Backlash suddenly started moving again just as Junkyard Dog was being counted out. Backlash won by KO at 59 seconds and Junkyard Dog was eliminated from the tournament again.
Because of the damage sustained from Backlash, Junkyard Dog couldn't participate the lightweight consolation rumble at the end of the tournament.
