Joey Logano won last weekend at Atlanta, completing a last-lap pass on Brad Keselowski to become the first Ford driver to reach Victory Lane this season.
With the win and stage points, Logano now takes over the championship standings, just ahead of Christopher Bell and Ross Chastain.
Chastain is the defending winner at COTA, moving A.J. Allmendinger to earn Trackhouse its first Cup victory as a team.
This week, NASCAR suspended Xfinity Series driver Josh Williams for one week after he defied race control and parked his car on track during the Atlanta NXS race.
Also this week, Cup and Truck teams got their first opportunity to test at North Wilkesboro Speedway in preparation for NASCAR’s return to the iconic track.

Who is racing at COTA?
39 cars have entered the race in the biggest field since the Daytona 500. With Chase Elliott recovering from a broken tibia in his left leg, IMSA star Jordan Taylor will make his NASCAR debut driving the No. 9 HMS Chevrolet.
He is not the only interesting name joining the field this weekend. Former Formula 1 World Champions Kimi Raikkonen and Jenson Button will both be running the race with Button behind the wheel of the No. 15 RWR Ford and Raikkonen driving for Trackhouse in the No. 91 once again.
Conor Daly and Jimmie Johnson are back as well, making their first start since the 500.
