Another one bites the dust! Rookie Zane Smith captured his first career Gander Trucks win on Friday night at Michigan and punched his ticket to the playoffs.
Now, only five spots remain for the postseason and they are currently occupied by Ben Rhodes, Christian Eckes, Brett Moffitt, Derek Kraus, and Todd Gilliland.
Rhodes is the highest-ranked driver without a win in sixth place and 85 points about the cutline.

With 19 races in the books, former series champion Johnny Sauter is below the Playoff cutline after a long string of bad luck. He currently sits in 13th, 72 points back from the final Playoff spot. Tyler Ankrum is sitting in 11th with hopes of making the jump above the cutline before the postseason begins. Stewart Friesen has had a tough season, like Sauter, and is currently sitting in 15th, 103 points back from the cutline.
