The week leading up to today’s Cup race at ISM Raceway was not without big news stories.

That also means there wasn’t a lack of social media reaction to said news.

The week got started off with the announcement that the Cup Series Awards banquet would be held in Nashville.

But what concerned Xfinity driver Chase Briscoe was the date for the Xfinity and Truck Series banquet, held the week before Thanksgiving.

There was a slight scheduling conflict.

Some other big news this week came in the form of the possibility that racing will return to Rockingham Speedway, which hasn’t hosted a Cup race since 2004.

The news caught the attention of Rick Mast, who last competed in the Cup Series in 2002.

How many others drivers could be lured out of retirement by The Rock?

The Year of Denny Hamlin continues.

The Joe Gibbs Racing driver has followed up his Daytona 500 win last month with another sporting achievement.

He started his weekend off with hitting a hole-in-one.

In case you didn’t hear, Daniel Suarez and Michael McDowell got into a bit of a shoving match Friday during qualifying.

Their fellow competitors sure noticed.

During media availability Friday at the track, Alex Bowman had a little fun and “interviewed” his Hendrick Motorsports teammate William Byron. If anyone says Bowman doesn’t have a personality, they don’t know what a personality is.
