The pack is back for Nationwide, Truck racing at Daytona

The pack is back, as NASCAR plans to eliminate two-car tandem drafting for the Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series by the time both series head to Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway for their season openers in late February.

One move NASCAR is making in hopes of eliminating the two car draft is implementing engine cooling rules already in place for the Sprint Cup Series, along with smaller spoilers. NASCAR has also announced that two-car drafts will not be allowed. According to NASCAR Vice President of Competition Robin Pemberton said the race fields at Daytona will be strictly policed and drivers may be black-flagged for tandem drafting.

"It was good to see everybody get out there and get right to drafting (in large packs during testing at Daytona on Saturday)," Pemberton said. "I'm really pleased with the test. Our conversations that we've had with the drivers have been positive and Wayne (Auton, NASCAR Nationwide Series Managing Director) is getting good feedback from the garage. It looks like a good effort on everybody's part to do all the right things out there. It looked really nice."
