Pro Stock returns to The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Las Vegas, Nevada. This is race No. 23 of the NHRA schedule.

This is the second-to-last race of the season. The Dodge NHRA Nationals are also event No. 5 of the Countdown to the Championship.

The Spring race was a four-wide event. However, with this event, the teams will use one side of the track.

Bo Butner won the Spring race. He defeated fellow Team Summit teammates Jason Line and Greg Anderson, along with Matt Hartford.

Butner went 6.677 at 206.67 mph for the win. Hartford was the second-place finisher with a 6.667 at 206.51.

Butner, Line, and Anderson will be back on the property this weekend. Team Summit will also have Deric Kramer, rookie Fernando Cuadra Jr., rookie Cristian Cuadra, and veteran Fernando Cuadra.

Team Elite features Jeg Coughlin Jr., Erica Enders, Alex Laughlin, and Aaron Stanfield. Kenny Delco Racing teammates Kenny Delco and Val Smeland will also be on the property.

Other Pro Stock drivers on the property include Richie Stevens Jr., Shane Tucker, Matt Hartford, Joey Grose, Steve Graham, and Chris McGaha.

There will be 19 Pro Stock cars on the property this weekend. Only 16 Pro Stock drivers will make elimination on Sunday. That means three teams and their respective drivers will not make the show following Saturday’s two qualifying sessions.
