Austin Cindric’s controversial win in the Chevrolet Silverado 250 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmanville, Ontario, Canada on Sept. 3 was the driver’s first-career win in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and locked him into the 2017 postseason playoffs with one race remaining in the the regular season — a Sept. 15 race at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Ill.

Cindric was the six different winner, among Truck Series championship-eligible drivers, of the season, leaving two positions remaining in the eight-driver playoffs. Other winners, so far, this season include Christopher Bell, Johnny Sauter, Matt Crafton, John Hunter Nemechek and Kaz Grala, led by four-time winner, Bell, with four trips to victory lane. Nemechek is the only other multi-race winner with two victories.

Heading into the final race of the regular season, Chase Briscoe and Ben Rhodes are in the provisional final two playoff positions by virtue of the points standings. Briscoe is in a comfortable position, 78 points ahead of Rhodes. Rhodes, though, only has a seven-point cushion on Ryan Truex, the first driver out, heading into the regular-season finale at Chicagoland.

Also, another new winner would knock Rhodes out of a playoff spot.

Here’s a look at the Camping World Truck Series standings after last weekend’s race at CTMP:
1. Christopher Bell — 4 wins, 24 playoff points
2. John Hunter Nemechek — 2 wins, 11 playoff points
3. Johnny Sauter — 1 win, 10 playoff points
4. Matt Crafton — 1 win, 7 playoff points
5. Austin Cindric — 1 win, 6 playoff points
6. Kaz Grala — 1 win, 5 playoff points
7. Chase Briscoe — 573 points, 1 playoff point
8. Ben Rhodes — 505 points, 1 playoff point
_______________
9. Ryan Truex — 498 points, 2 playoff points
10. Grant Enfinger — 474 points, 0 playoff points
11. Noah Gragson — 458 points, 1 playoff point
12. Justin Haley — 386 points, 0 playoff points
