Emerging in 1948 out of Daytona Beach, NASCAR has become a popular choice of motor racing. The cars used in the competition are a form of old stock cars, and it is common to experience crashes on the track.
In one race, you can witness up to 40 different cars racing on the track to achieve the top spot. All things considered, there's no surprise as to why there might be so many frequent crashes, especially when you consider the size of the racetrack.
If you're new to NASCAR betting online, there are familiarities with other motor racing competitions, and you can expect to see fast-paced action, resulting in close finishes. You'll also notice the teams of engineers and chiefs that are in place to support the driver and repair the vehicle through any pit stops.
Each race is quite extensive, with more than a hundred being completed before the race is brought to a close. However, drivers don't need to complete all of these laps in one sitting. Instead, the race is dissected into three stages to allow for pit stops.
The NASCAR season typically lasts the majority of the year, with 38 races being completed throughout. This will run from February until November.
Given the frequency of NASCAR races, betting markets are available across the year to provide you with a range of betting options for one of the most popular motorsports in America.

Outright NASCAR Betting Odds
If you're wanting to bet ahead of a NASCAR race or you're wanting to bet on the outcome of the racing season, you can find odds such as:
Winner of NASCAR Cup Series Championship - Ahead of the NASCAR season, you can predict which driver you believe will win the entire season. This is achieved by the driver who has accumulated the most points.
Winner of individual races - Throughout the season, you can bet on every race, allowing you to predict who will win the race.
Placement - Selecting a winner can be a specific bet when you need to pick from a minimum of 36 drivers that will be taking part in the race. Instead, you can find odds for drivers to place within a certain position. For example, you could bet on a driver to finish in the top 3 of the race.
Live NASCAR Betting Odds

Stage betting - As each race is broken into stages, you can find odds for each one during the race. For example, you might notice a driver performing well, meaning they could have a strong run in the second stage. This could include betting on the driver winning the upcoming stage.
NASCAR Betting FAQs
What is the best bet for NASCAR?
Similar to many variations of motor racing bets, NASCAR offers a wide selection of betting options, from placements to outright season winners. Each event is determined by a number of key factors you aren't always able to predict. That said, there is no way to suggest which bet is best. It all comes down to personal preference. Popular NASCAR bets can include outright winners for individual races.
What happens if there is a crash in NASCAR?
Any crashes that occur on the racetrack can cause the race to stop, as the driver will need to be attended to for safety. Any debris on the track, as a result of the crash, will also need to be cleared before the race can continue.
What are the NASCAR playoffs?
Once we get to the closing stages of the NASCAR season, some of the highest-performing drivers will enter the playoffs based on the points they have earned. The playoffs have been designed in stages, with the first consisting of sixteen drivers and the second being narrowed down to the final twelve. By the final stage, only four drivers will remain to battle it out for the champion of the NASCAR season.
