Aaron rode El Patron for 85.5 points, followed by 85 points at Emerald Inn during the championship round. He landed in second position for the night and earned 29 national points. Cody currently holds two championship titles in his name. If he wins the season, he will be matching shoulders with Aaron Roy. But if Roy who stands fifth in the overall standings, lunges ahead in finals, he will be clinching an unprecedented fourth title.
