NASCAR heads to Bristol Motor Speedway this weekend. The Gander Outdoors Truck Series will feature the first race in Round 1 of their championship Playoffs while the Xfinity Series has five races remaining in the regular season. The Monster Energy Cup Series will close out the weekend with three to go.
With the regular season in the rear view mirror, the NASCAR Truck Series now sets their sights for the postseason with eight races to decide the 2019 Truck Series champion.
With the Playoffs beginning at Bristol, let's take an in-depth look at how we got here and the drivers who have a chance at the title.
It's hard to believe that the regular season has come and gone in the Truck Series in 2019. Not too long ago, we were just opening up the season at Daytona in February.
The NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series rolled into Michigan International Speedway for race No. 16 of the 2019 season. It wasn't just another race for the truckers, rather it was the last regular-season race of the season before the Playoffs begin at Bristol Motor Speedway Thursday night.
In an overtime restart, Austin Hill in No. 16 Hattori Racing Toyota was able to hold off Sheldon Creed and Tyler Dippel for his second win of the 2019 season.
