How Do You Bet on NASCAR?

Last Updated:

Betting on NASCAR can be exciting and potentially profitable if done correctly. There are several legal options available for betting on NASCAR in the US. One way to bet on NASCAR is by placing a wager on the race winner or a specific driver to finish in the top three or top five. Another popular betting option is head-to-head matchups, where bettors choose which driver will finish higher between two selected drivers.

Additionally, bettors can place futures bets on which driver will win the NASCAR Cup Series Championship or the NASCAR All-Star Race. Some sportsbooks also offer proposition bets, such as the number of cautions during a race or the margin of victory.

To legally bet on NASCAR in the US, you must be 21 years of age or older and located in a state where sports betting is legal. Some of the legal sports betting options for NASCAR include DraftKings, FanDuel, BetMGM, and PointsBet. You can find a comprehensive list of legal sportsbooks on Betting Hero’s sportsbook page at
