NASCAR wants lane stripes at Daytona
NASCAR will ask Daytona International Speedway to add broken, white lane stripes between Turns 1 and 2 and Turns 3 and 4 before returning in February.

"It will be nice to have judgment marks and reference points through there will help for sure," driver Joey Logano said after an intense two-car draft session with Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Kyle Busch. Both drive Toyotas.

Sprint Cup director John Darby said before NASCAR returns for Speed Weeks, the track will add lane markers in all the 31-degree banked areas.

"We've had some conversations with a few drivers and they've told us that would be helpful to them when they are three wide in a draft," Darby said Saturday. "The hash marks will give them some sort of a guide to understand how much room they have above and below them.  In talking with the Speedway (Saturday) morning, they said they will probably paint those right before the stock cars start running in February."

Darby said the double-yellow lines, which separate the racing surface from the out-of-bounds area for NASCAR races at Daytona, will not be moved from the apron to the track surface. Daytona Beach News Journal
