Dover casino adds wagering on NASCAR


Wagers can now be made on NASCAR racing at the Dover Downs Hotel & Casino in Dover, Delaware.

Dover International Speedway announced Friday that auto racing is now included among the full sports betting offerings at its neighboring property. Among the ways to bet is winner-of-the-race plays, proposition wagers, and futures wagering.

Delaware became the first state to offer sports betting on June 5, after the Supreme Court overturned a federal ban on it last month. Delaware is the first state outside of Nevada to offer full sports betting.

Odds for specific drivers to win a race will be listed, such as:

Kyle Busch, 6-1

Kevin Harvick, 8-1

Jimmie Johnson, 10-1

Dover says “typically” 27 drivers will be listed to wager on individually along with “the field” option. The early week odds will be adjusted after practice and qualifying sessions.

Proposition wager will be pitting two drivers against each other head-to-head. Future wagering can be made on something like “Who will be the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion?”

Wagering on stage winners will also be available for Dover races.

“Sports betting, literally trackside, is a great addition to the excitement that is already being generated during our race weekends,” said Dover track president and CEO Mike Tatoian. “Our fans over the age of 21 can enjoy wagering on their favorite driver when they are here during the NASCAR playoff run this fall.”

Starting in May 2019, betting lines will also be offered for Camping World Truck races at Dover.
