Playoff Bubble Drivers At Michigan 
With the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series playoff picture above, below is an in-depth look at drivers ranked 7-12 in the current playoff standings.

7. Ben Rhodes: Currently seventh in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series playoffs standings, Ben Rhodes is in need of a win to cement his name in the playoffs. The ThorSport Racing driver has one career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start at Michigan – he finished sixth there in his track debut last season.

8. Ryan Truex: Coming off a season-best finish at Pocono (third), Ryan Truex will look to improve upon that in his second career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start at Michigan this week. Truex made his track debut at the two-mile track last season and finished 23rd.

9. Grant Enfinger: Even though he is a Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender, Grant Enfinger does have a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start at Michigan under his belt. He made his track debut there last season and finished eighth after starting ninth. Enfinger is having a strong Sunoco Rookie season, as he’s battled with Brad Keselowski Racing driver Chase Briscoe all season. Enfinger is currently four points away from a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series playoffs spot.

10. Noah Gragson: Coming off a wreck at Pocono, the 24th-place showing ended Sunoco Rookie Noah Gragson’s seven-race streak of top-10 finishes. Gragson has yet to make a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start at Michigan International Speedway, but will look to get back on track and score another top finish this season. Gragson has two top fives and eight top 10s in 12 starts this season for Kyle Busch Motorsports.

11. Austin Cindric: Currently 11th in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Playoffs standings, Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender Austin Cindric has been racing well as of late. The Brad Keselowski Racing driver has four-consecutive top-10 finishes and hasn’t finished outside the top-25 since Daytona. Cindric is 62 points away from the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series playoffs cutoff and has not made a start at Michigan International Speedway yet in his career.

12. Justin Haley: Only making 10 starts in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series this season, GMS Racing and Sunoco Rookie driver Justin Haley has made the most of them. Haley has finished top-10 or better in eight of those starts and is currently 12th in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Playoffs standings. He has never made a career start at Michigan, but will need those top-10 finishes to inch closer to the playoff cutoff line. He’s currently 101 points back from eighth place driver Ryan Truex.

Michigan Wolverine: Johnny Sauter Makes Case For Michigan Dominance 
2016 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion Johnny Sauter is looking for his second win of the season this week at Michigan International Speedway.

Sauter is having another championship-worthy season, as he currently is second in NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver points – only 18 points back of leader Christopher Bell. The GMS Racing driver is currently third in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series playoff standings – racking up 10 playoff points this season – the third-most among active drivers.

In eight career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts at Michigan, Sauter has been a wolverine – scoring one win (2014), two top fives and three top 10s. He’s led 46 career laps at Michigan and has never finished outside the top-20.

He will look to continue that run this weekend.
