Clinch scenarios for Camping World Truck Series at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series has turned into a pressure cooker with five spots left up for grabs in the NASCAR Playoffs and just two races left for drivers to win their way into the postseason. And with five spots remaining and only two races to go, that means at least three spots this season will be taken by drivers who transfer in on points.

Here’s a look at the scenarios ahead of Saturday’s race at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course (1:30 p.m. ET, FS1, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).
