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.

Tyler Ankrum is sitting in 11th with hopes of making the jump above the cutline before the postseason begins.
