Best Answer

Yellow stripes are used on the rear bumpers to signify a rookie driver. Sometimes the yellow stripes are also used for non-rookies but those are drivers who have never ran a race at that specific track. Most often times, there are two separate stripes, but occasionally there are cars that have one single stripe running the direct center of the bumper.

It is a yellow stripe, and is often called a rookie tag or yellowback. Its intention is to warn experienced NASCAR drivers that they might want to use a little extra caution when they come up behind a vehicle marked in this manner.
