The partnership includes a variety of marketing and promotional initiatives for Maryland residents to enjoy, as well as the integration of FanDuel’s sports betting odds into NASCAR’s fantasy platform.
“This is a major milestone for FanDuel,” said Matt King, CEO of FanDuel. “NASCAR is one of the most popular sports in the United States, and we’re excited to partner with them to bring sports betting to their fans.”
“We’re thrilled to partner with FanDuel,” said Joe Solosky, NASCAR managing director of sports betting.“FanDuel is a leader in the sports betting industry, and we’re confident that this partnership will deliver great experiences to our fans.”
NASCAR Betting on the Rise
NASCAR joined the sports betting universe in 2020, and sports betting companies will sponsor four races and at least three individual racing cars this season. The NASCAR website states,
“Sports betting on NASCAR has increased exponentially as betting operators saw a 51.5% increase in the total amount of money wagered on NASCAR in 2022 compared to the previous year. NASCAR’s authorized gaming operators include BetMGM, FanDuel, and Penn Entertainment”.
How Does the New Partnership Affect Maryland Sports Bettors?
FanDuel Maryland plans to offer the same wagering opportunities on race stages, qualifying, and pit stops that it always has. The bookmaking giant and NASCAR also plan on offering special bonuses and promotions to Maryland Motor Sports bettors.
When used responsibly, welcome bonuses, odds boosts, and special promotions can be extremely profitable. That means more potential profit for Old Line State sports bettors and fantasy sports owners.
NASCAR already operates fantasy sports contests that Maryland bettors can enjoy, and nothing will change there. The added benefit of this partnership is that each Maryland NASCAR fantasy contestant will also see FanDuel betting odds for each driver with a direct link to the FanDuel sportsbook app.
