Just saw a pack racing clip for the Daytona 500, said that driver's can't communicate with other drivers.

I think the tandem drafting days are finally over. My god I am so relieved about that.

Well, the racing will be better. But, the finish is going to suck cause the 2nd place car coming to the white is either going to follow the car in front of him at the end or not have the help.

Whoever takes the white flag in this years race is going to win it unless they mess up or wreck themselves blocking.

I don't care what anyone says, until I see honest, solid, race proof, We will see Tandems.

^This. Just because we saw everyone "pack racing" at Daytona during testing doesn't mean the tandem crap is gone. I'm sure we'll still see some tandems, it's a matter of how much we'll see it.

It'll be very difficult to do two car tandem when they can't communicate with each other.

I never really had a problem with tandem racing, but that was because, as exciting as pack racing was, it was sad when someone would screw up at the front and mess up 20 or 30 days.

And I'm sure the tandem racing will still happen, still have the spotters and such

But I will say, communications in the car should only be between Crew Chief, Driver, and Spotter. Need something to say to someone else?!? Communicate it through your spotter

You don't have to communicate to just hook up with somebody. I could never say a word to you, but if I line up behind you on a restart, I can just draft up and start working with you.

This is what you learn when you've seen both pack racing and two-car tango racing.

Pack Racing: Great racing in the pack and during the race, Sucky finish.

Two-car tango racing: Not very exciting racing during the race, lots of lead changes, Great/Fantastic Finish.

Um...they tango'd almost the whole pre-season thunder without communication. So, yeah they can. I don't really care one way or another. I honestly like both. They both have pros, they both have cons.

If NASCAR thinks that banning communication between teams will stop two car tangos, then they're dumber than they look. Spoiler alert NASCAR: All the spotters sit at the same place during the race. If they want to end two car tangos, they'll have to do something really drastic like lock all the spotters in separate rooms during the race.

If you are running in one big pack... 5 lucky rabbit foots, a horseshoe or two, and maybe rubbing a Budda's belly. Even one hint of a peanut shell and you're effed.

These days, horsepower and a teammate. Pack racing in a stock car at least took some talent... albeit, not too much...

"All you can do is put yourself in a position, circumstances dictate the outcome."- Richard Petty (I believe).

When it comes to the 500, like any race, all a driver can do is that which they can control. And whatever happens happens.

Dale tried for 20 years to win the 500 doing just about everything he could, but he only won it once. Trevor Bayne won it in his first try. Anything can and will happen, why?

It's the Daytona 500.
