The final three spots in the Truck Series Championship 4 will be filled out this weekend at Phoenix International Raceway.

Johnny Sauter is the only driver to have clinched his spot after winning at both Martinsville Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway. The Truck Series veteran will compete for his first championship in his first season at GMS Racing.

Two-time champion Matt Crafton holds the final transfer spot. He has a one-point advantage on Timothy Peters. Ben Kennedy is last on the Chase grid, 13 points out of a transfer spot.

Here are the clinch scenarios for Friday night’s Lucas Oil 150:

William Byron (0 wins, 3052 points) – would clinch on points with 30 points (third and no laps led, fourth with at least one lap led, or fifth with the most laps led). With a win, would clinch a spot in the next round.

Christopher Bell (o wins, 3051 points) – would clinch on points with 31 points (second and no laps led, third with at least one lap led, or fourth with most laps led). With a win, would clinch a spot in the next round.

Matt Crafton (0 wins, 3048 points) – If there is a winner who has been eliminated from Chase contention or is currently in a transfer spot, Crafton would clinch on points with a second-place finish. Can also clinch a spot with a win.

Both Peters (o wins, 3047 points) and Kennedy (0 wins, 3035 points) can only guarantee a spot in the Championship 4 with a win. They could still clinch on points with a new winner and some help.
