Other point leaders hoping to clinch at The Rock include Jones in Top Diesel, Ryan “The Hard Way” Milliken of Navarre, Fla., with Dodge Ram trucks in both Pro Stock and Super Street, Jarid “the Iron Man” Vollmer of Chubbuck, Idaho, in Pro Street and Ryan Dubois of Boise, Idaho in Super Diesel.

Gates open at 9 a.m. and the drag racing portion of the program begins at 10.
