There are five open spots remaining in the Xfinity Series Playoffs Seven drivers have secured their place by virtue of wins including Ty Gibbs, AJ Allmendinger, Justin Allgaier, Noah Gragson, Josh Berry, Brandon Jones and Austin Hill.

The Truck Series race this weekend at Mid-Ohio is the last race in the Triple Truck Challenge and the last opportunity to earn the $50,000 bonus.
