A pair of rookies – Zane Smith, who is locked in with a pair of wins, and Christian Eckes, sitting in eighth in the Playoff grid standings, are poised to advance to the Playoffs when the regular season ends in two races.

Smith continues to hold the top spot in the Gander Trucks Sunoco Rookie of the Year standings with a 50-point lead over Eckes.

But the outside of the Playoff bubble holds several Sunoco Rookies looking to vault into the Playoffs in their debut year in the Gander Trucks.

Derek Kraus (third in the Sunoco rookie standings) and Tanner Gray (fourth in the rookie standings) are just outside the Playoff bubble, in 11th and 12th, respectively. Kraus sits just 13 points behind Todd Gilliland in the final spot of 10th while Gray is 68 points out of the grid.

And Raphael Lessard, fifth in the rookie standings, is in 13th on the grid.
