Nascar is a truly American sport. It has always been popular in certain parts of the country, but there are Nascar fans all over. These days, Nascar drivers hail from many different states, and the Nascar decision-makers have tried to bring the sport back to its roots by going to a few historical racetracks (North Wilkesboro (!!), Mother’s Day AND Labor Day at Darlington) in addition to new markets like Kentucky, Nashville, and St. Louis. Nascar is always innovating by using new technology in its cars and finding new and exciting places to race.

This season, Nascar is really taking things to another level. The days of racing on boring 1.5-mile oval tracks seem to be ending. The most anticipated race of 2023 is easily the Chicago Street Course race. Nascar will be taking over the streets of Chicago this July 4 weekend in an unprecedented Grand Prix-style race. The 2023 schedule is a great mix of old and new races designed to bring in communities and population groups that may be new to Nascar. Here is this year’s schedule:

Popular NASCAR Betting Options

NASCAR Futures

As you can see above, futures are a popular way to bet on NASCAR races. All you do is pick the driver you think will win. Every driver has their own odds based on their perceived chances of winning the week’s race. A driver with odds listed at +400, for example, is a 4-to-1 favorite. Someone else listed at +2000 is a 20-to-1 long-shot. This is the easiest way to bet on NASCAR races, but it’s also really hard to predict which driver will win, which is why the payouts are higher than a traditional -110 point spread bet for sports like basketball and football.

Sportsbooks have thought of this and now offer additional futures wagering to make it easier to pick a winning driver. Instead of just picking a driver to win, you can bet whether your favorite driver will finish in the Top 3, Top 5, and Top 10. The odds go down, but the chances of winning obviously increase. Not every sportsbook has this option for Nascar wagering, so be sure to shop around to find the best variety of betting options.

Head-to-Head Matchups

Speaking of a variety of betting options, wagering on matchups is a popular choice among fans of NASCAR betting. Instead of having to beat the entire field, in a matchup wager, your driver just has to beat one or two other drivers. Here is an example of a matchup wager that you might see listed in a sportsbook:

  • Ross Chastain -125
  • Daniel Suarez -105

In this hypothetical matchup, Ross Chastain is the favorite. You would have to wager $125 on him to win $100 (-125). Daniel Suarez is the underdog, though as you’ll notice he also has minus-odds (-105). This means you have to wager $105 on him to win $100. Not every matchup has a favorite with minus-odds and an underdog with plus-odds. Matchup wagering is a great way to find some value and increase your likelihood of victory.

Additional Betting Options

Every sportsbook is different, but the sportsbooks that have a partnership with Nascar seem to have the widest variety of wagering options. Barstool Sportsbook has the following betting options for most Nascar races:

  • Qualifying Winner
  • Featured Matchups
  • Winner
  • Top 3
  • Top 5
  • Top 10
  • Team of Race Winner
  • Best to Finish Group A/B/C/D
  • Manufacturer of Winning Car
  • Top Ford/Toyota/Chevrolet Car
  • Car Number of Race Winner Even/Odd
  • And more depending on the race
