CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - NASCAR officials say they aren't planning any radical changes for the 2012 season after one of its most exciting seasons ever.
However, they'll look to tweak a few things to improve the sport and are moving forward on measures to reduce two-car tandem racing at Daytona and Talladega.
Speaking at a preseason press conference, NASCAR Chairman and CEO Brian France said Thursday two-car drafting has ``evolved into something that no one saw coming, and now we're going to deal with that.''
France says fans want to see ``a return to that more traditional, more pack racing'' and closer side-by-side competition.
France says the introduction of the wild card and the simplification of the points system last season was a success and the format won't change this year.
