DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.–What a new Nationwide Series competition package can’t accomplish, as far as tandem drafting is concerned, NASCAR will govern by edict.

Both the sanctioning body and the NNS drivers believe a shorter spoiler and a new cooling package, both mandated for superspeedways this year, will minimize two-car hookups with one car pushing another.

Beyond that, NASCAR informed Nationwide teams in an October meeting that locking bumpers in a tandem draft will be policed and prohibited.

“They made it very clear, that if we tandem at all, both cars will be black-flagged,” driver Elliott Sadler said Saturday.
