NASCAR is taking a “much deeper dive” into the fuel-saving strategy Cup teams employed during Monday‘s Daytona 500, which saw drivers racing at close to half-throttle at some points.

Elton Sawyer, senior vice president of competition for NASCAR, made the comments Tuesday morning on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.

“Ultimately, we want to drop the green flag on the race and they‘re racing as hard as they can until they drop the checkered flag,” Sawyer said on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio. “There‘s some strategy in between there, and we will definitely take a much deeper drive into this particular situation and the strategy that goes into it.”
