Motorsport excellence in the USA
NASCAR is a popular sport in the United States, especially in the south. To put it into perspective, big races happen almost every weekend of the year all over the country, leading up to the end of the season when the NASCAR Cup champion is finally crowned.
Nascar consists of three different series: the Cup Series, the Xfinity Series (or Nationwide Series) and the Truck Series. The Cup series is the highest level, while the Xfinity series is treated as the "support" series and considered a proving ground for the big leagues.
The main differences are a slightly shorter wheelbase (105" instead of 110"), 100 pounds less weight and a less powerful engine. In addition, the Xfinity races are held on Saturdays, while the Cup series is held on Sundays.
Betting on Nascar
Nascar bettors can bet on the winner of each of these races as well as the winner of the Nascar Cup championship. bwin is the perfect platform for placing your bets on the Nascar Cup Series.
The vast majority of races (34 out of 36) are run on an oval track over a distance of between 1.6 kilometres and 3.2 kilometres, with banked corners. The inaugural race is traditionally the Daytona 500, which takes place in February. The end of the season is in November.
The first part of the season consists of 26 races. After these races, the top 16 drivers qualify for the NASCAR playoffs, known as the Chase — a 10-race series that determines the Cup Series champion.
Recommended Betting in NASCAR
During a race, chances are that several negative factors can come into play when deciding who will win out of the 40 drivers competing. An accident, mechanical failure, or even driver error on the pit road can derail a driver's chance of winning.
Since pile-ups are fairly common, we recommend betting on the season winner, as this type of bet has smaller fluctuations throughout the year. One race does not derail an entire season.
