Playoff Bubble Drivers At Canadian Tire 
With the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series playoff picture above, below is an outlook of drivers No. 7-12 in the current playoff standings.

7. Ben Rhodes: Ben Rhodes has been hot as of late. His fifth-place finish at Bristol was enough for him to jump over Ryan Truex to seventh in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Playoffs. Rhodes has three top-11 or better finishes in his last three starts. Rhodes has one career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start at Canadian Tire and finished 30th due to a crash last season.

8. Ryan Truex:After two consecutive top fives at Pocono and Michigan, Ryan Truex cooled down with a 16th-place finish at Bristol. He went from seventh in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Playoffs standings to eighth. Truex has one career start at Canadian Tire and he finished 21st there last season.

9. Grant Enfinger: Enfinger remains just nine points away from a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Playoffs spot as he currently sits ninth in the playoffs standings. He’s driven hard as of late – scoring three top-eight or better finishes in his last four races. Enfinger has yet to make a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start at Canadian Tire, but will need another strong showing to get closer to a playoff spot.

10. Noah Gragson: Sunoco Rookie contender Noah Gragson has had a strong rookie season, and will need to continue that over his next two races. He’s had two top fives and nine top 10s through 14 races. He sits 34 points away from a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Playoffs spot and is in 10th place in the Playoffs standings. Gragson has never made a career start at Canadian Tire.

11. Austin Cindric: Going hard after a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Playoffs spot, Brad Keselowski Racing driver Austin Cindric has six-consecutive top-10s and still has yet to finish outside the top-25 since Daytona at the start of the season. Cindric has one career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start at Canadian Tire – he finished 23rd there last season.

12. Justin Haley: Having a really strong Sunoco Rookie season is GMS Racing’s Justin Haley. After missing the first two races this season, Haley has managed to score 11 consecutive top-17 or better finishes. He has not finished outside the top-15 since Charlotte earlier this season. He remains 105 points out of a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Playoffs berth, but one win can change everything for the Sunoco Rookie driver. Haley has some experience at Canadian Tire – he made his track debut in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series last year, but only completed nine laps due to a clutch issue.

New Kids On The Block 
There have been four NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park – with the inaugural race taking place in 2013.

Starting with the most recent, below are the four NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race winners in those four races.

John Hunter Nemechek 09/04/2016
Erik Jones 08/30/2015
Ryan Blaney 08/31/2014
Chase Elliott 09/01/2013

Notice anything?

Each one of these drivers are currently 23 or younger at the moment and were all under the age of 21 when they won their NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park.

Elliott became the youngest NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race winner to win a race at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park at 17-years old in 2013.

All of these winners are in good company as Jones, Blaney and Elliott are all current Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series drivers, while Nemechek is looking for his second consecutive NASCAR Camping World Truck Series playoff berth.

If the previous four NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races are any indication, the race winner on Sunday will be a hungry young NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver.

Crafton Looking To Crank It Up At Canadian Tire 
NASCAR Camping World Truck Series veteran and back-to-back series champion (2013-14) Matt Crafton is looking for his first career win at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park.

He’s come close in four career starts there. Last season he finished fourth, but in 2015, Crafton placed runner-up in his career-best finish at the road course.

In those four starts, Crafton has never finished worse than 10th and has placed sixth or better three times. He owns an average finish of 5.5 at Canadian Tire, and has led five career laps there.

Crafton is all but cemented into a 2017 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Playoffs berth thanks to his win at Eldora Speedway earlier this year.

He is currently third in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series points standings behind Christopher Bell (leader) and Johnny Sauter (second). Crafton is fourth in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Playoffs standings and has seven playoff points.
