WHO HAD A GOOD RACE: Chandler Smith entered the night last in the 10-driver playoff field at 12 points behind the cutline to advance, but came through in the clutch for his first career Truck win … Hocevar did not pit during the Stage 2 break, but finished sixth to make that call stand up and move on in the post-season.
WHO HAD A BAD RACE: Austin Hill's shot at a championship ended when contact with Josh Berry sent him hard into the inside front stretch wall with 12 laps to go. The impact sent Hill up Turn 1 and into the truck of Hailie Deegan, with the ensuing melee collecting several others. Hill was above the cutline to advance prior to a restart with 14 laps to go.
NEXT RACE: The Round of 8 opens at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Friday, Sept. 24 (9 p.m. ET, FS1).
