Levels 4, 3, 2, 1 and Prime Time Non Pro finalists will return to vie for championships on Friday, April 23 in the Coliseum Arena.

Capturing the Level 4 Non Pro preliminary round win with a 221 was the stylish team of NRHA Two Million Dollar Rider Mandy McCutcheon riding JLosa. JLosa, by Arlosa Whiz and out of the mare Spook N Jessie, is owned by Mandy and her husband Tom McCutcheon.
