Zane Smith finished 13th Saturday, but that was more than enough to clinch the regular season title and 15 bonus Playoff points.

The 10-driver Playoff field was finalized as well, with Grant Enfinger (finished 17th) and Matt Crafton (finished 15th) securing the last two Playoff spots.

Here’s the unofficial reset Playoff standings entering the opening Round of 10, which starts Friday at Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park:

Nemechek finished third Saturday, followed by Corey Heim in fourth and Hocevar in fifth.

Saturday’s race was also the last for two-time Truck Series champion Todd Bodine, who made his 800th and final NASCAR national series start.

It was not a happy ending for Bodine. He was knocked out of the race following a Lap 12 crash that also involved Jack Wood and Tyler Hill.

Bodine signs off with 22 Truck Series and 15 Xfinity Series wins on his resume. He also made 241 starts in the top-level Cup Series.

Stage 1 winner: Chandler Smith

Stage 2 winner: Christian Eckes
