Betting on races is as old as time. It goes way back to the days of the Coliseum, when the Romans would race their chariots. Onlookers and spectators have always liked to have something going on the side, ‘extra action’, if you will. On this site, you’ll find schedules for some of the world’s biggest racing leagues; including NASCAR, Formula 1, and World Rally Car.
How to Bet on Different Types of Motorsports?
NASCAR and Formula 1 are arguably the two most popular racing leagues in the world. NASCAR is more popular in the United States than internationally. Formula 1 is more popular globally, sort of like comparing American Football with soccer.
Unlike sports such as football and basketball, there are no spreads in Motorsports. That sometimes confuses people new on Motorsports betting, especially if they have a background as a fan. You’ll often hear terms like “[Driver A] won by three-and-half lengths. While that is a common racing term, it in no way applies to anything related to gambling on the sport.
Before placing a wager, do your research. If you have a driver you want to bet on, take a few minutes and look at his track record, literally. Many times, drivers race better on certain tracks than others, whether it’s particular tracks or just certain styles of tracks.
