NASCAR warned Xfinity drivers about locking bumpers and swerving after tonight’s race at Daytona International Speedway.

During the drivers meeting Friday afternoon, Wayne Auton, managing director of the Xfinity Series, told competitors: “This is your warning drivers. Locking bumpers in an attempt to push another car to advance your position, you will be black flagged.

“No swerving or any means to circumvent the postrace inspections as you’re coming back to pit road.’’

Competitors were reminded that if they go below the yellow line to advance their position, they will be black flagged. Competitors were told that if they force a competitor below the yellow line to stop from being passed, they may be black flagged.

Drivers also were told twice in the meeting that they must have four tires below the orange box at the commitment line to enter pit road.

Tonight’s race is scheduled to take the green flag at 7:49 p.m. ET on NBCSN.
