After Christian Eckes’ dominant victory on Friday in Nashville, only three races of the regular season remain for the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series playoffs.

With only four drivers confirmed for the postseason after 13 races, no one can predict who will fight for the championship.

Here is the situation for bubble riders to Nashville.

5. Ty Majeski (+144)

6. Tyler Ankrum (+47)

7. Taylor Gray (+38)

8. Ben Rhodes (+34)

The reigning Truck Series champion actually lost two points at the cut line on Friday, but after a rocky start to the season, the No. 99 team is finally starting to turn things around. Rhodes finished seventh on Friday, making it seventh or better three times in the last four races. Rhodes should be able to force his way into the postseason, and he’s proven he can win the title as an underdog — twice.

9. Grant Enfinger (+33)

Enfinger can be called one of the night’s biggest winners when it comes to the playoff cut line, as the veteran driver gained seven points and one spot after a sixth-place finish in Nashville. The speed in the No. 9 truck is becoming more consistent, and the July 19 race at IRP – where Enfinger won in 2022 – could be where Enfinger puts it all together for his first win of the season.

10. Tanner Gray (+14)

Gray finished 14th on Friday after an incident early in the race, but is getting better every week. Gray has a history of starting the season strong before falling off sharply, but he has been steady so far in 2024. He will need to race hard in the next three races to secure a playoff spot, but right now he has as good a chance as anyone to pull through.

11. Daniel Dye (-14)

There couldn’t have been a better time for Dye to earn his career-best finish (second place) than Friday in Nashville, where Dye’s second-place performance earned him 23 points toward the playoff cut line. At just 20 years old, Dye may not have any postseason experience, but the speed of the No. 43 truck is finally showing each week. Dye was left out of many playoff rounds earlier in the season, but the young driver could soon be on the verge of another breakthrough performance.

12. Stewart Friesen (-17)

Although Friesen lost his 11th place in the points standings to Dye, Nashville still managed to gain Friesen nine points off the playoff line. Winning the pole and the eight stage points certainly helped soften the blow for an otherwise mediocre 11th place finish. Friesen needs to be up front more often to be taken seriously, but he could have enough experience to fight his way into the playoffs.

13. Matt Crafton (-54)

Crafton may not have the worst points finish of his career in 2024, but if he misses the playoffs for the first time this season, it would be no exaggeration to call his 24th full-time season the worst of his legendary career. The three-time champion ran in the top 10 in Nashville before finishing two laps down in 23rd place. With three races to make up 54 points or claim his first win in four years, it’s a case of give it his all or keep quiet for Crafton, who is reaching the end of his career at 48.

14. Chase Purdy (-61)

15. Jake Garcia (-67)

16. Layne Riggs (-80)

17. Dean Thompson (-95)

18. Ty Dillon (-107)

19. Bayley Curry (-114)

20. Bret Holmes (-122)
