NASCAR Betting Online: It was first called the Outback Steakhouse 300, but I think we can all agree that the current name, the Feed the Children 300, is a more righteous title. The Feed the Children foundation provides food, medicine, clothes and other life essentials to children and families in need. The NASCAR Nationwide Series brings its fan base to the table in an effort to help this non-profit in a great example of charitable partnership. Of course, this is still a great opportunity to provide a little charity to your own pocketbook with some NASCAR wagering online, as the top drivers in the Nationwide series come together to fight child hunger.
The Feed the Children 300 takes place annually at the Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, Kentucky. Jumping off under the lights, this year's race starts at 7:30 PM ET on Friday, June 28 and is available to watch live on ESPN. There is nothing better than some fast cars speeding around in a circle under the bright lights of national television cameras.
Last year, Austin Dillon claimed his first ever Nationwide Series win at this event, while also setting the event record, becoming the first driver in event history to finish the race at under two hours. His average speed of 151 mph was a good 13 mph's faster than the next closest contender, Brad Keselowski from just one year prior.
The king of this event, however, has to be Joey Logano, whose three peat from 2008-2010 made him the only multiple winner in the event's history. Logano's 2008 win was his first on the Nationwide Series circuit, and he has never looked back.
There are plenty of great options for some NASCAR wagering online in the Feed the Children 300, so head to BookMaker's live lines to make some money with a smart wager.
How to bet on Nascar Feed The Children 300
The odds of a driver to win the Feed The Children 300 will generally look something like:
- Jeff Gordon + 200
- Mark Martin + 250
- Jeff Burton + 300
- Bill Elliott + 700
- Robby Gordon + 700
- Field + 500
These betting odds will be lower when betting on a driver to finish in the top three, as the sportsbook must pay off three different winning bets.
A player would have to bet $10 to win $20 that Jeff Gordon will win the Feed The Children 300, while the bettor wagering on Bill Elliott stands to win $70 on their $10 wager.
Another commonly placed bet in NASCAR is head-to-head finish between two drivers. With this bet, a player doesn't really care what place the driver finishes in, as long as the driver finishes higher than the other driver.
A head-to-head betting line for the Feed The Children 300 will look something like:
- Mark Martin - 130 Jeff Burton + 110
In this bet, players wagering on Martin to finish higher than Burton will be asked to risk $13 to win $10, while bettors believing that Burton will finish higher than Martin will bet $10 to win $11.
Those familiar with sports betting will have no trouble making the transition to NASCAR wagering, while those new to the world of sports betting should be able to pick up the concepts of NASCAR betting without too much hassle.
2013 Feed the Children 300 Winner - Keselowski wins rain-shortened Nationwide race
Winless in 16 Sprint Cup races this year, Brad Keselowski was hopeful that a return to Kentucky Speedway would provide a spark to his season. With a little help from Mother Nature, he got it Friday night.
Keselowski led 59 laps, including the final 15, to win the Nationwide Series Feed The Children 300 and carry some momentum into Saturday's Quaker State 400 Cup race. Friday's race was halted after 170 laps because of a light rain.
Elliott Sadler finished second, followed by Matt Crafton, Brian Vickers and Kyle Busch.
Keselowski won for the third time at Kentucky Speedway, having captured the Nationwide race in 2011 and last year's Quaker State 400 on his way to the Sprint Cup championship.
He has struggled in 2013, with just one top-10 finish in his past eight Sprint Cup races, but picked up his 22nd career Nationwide victory Friday.
2012 Feed the Children 300 Winner - Austin Dillon dominates Nationwide at Kentucky Speedway
In a race that has provided some drama in recent years, Austin Dillon pretty much took all the excitement out of the Feed The Children 300.
The 22-year-old utterly dominated Friday’s Nationwide Series race, leading all but eight of the 200 laps and cruising to a 9.828-second victory over Kurt Busch.
This marks the fourth time in 12 Nationwide Series races here that a driver has recorded his first win. Dillon joins David Gilliland (2006), Stephen Leicht (’07) and Joey Logano (’08) in accomplishing that feat. He is also the third first-time winner in the Series this season.
Driving the black No. 3 Chevrolet that his grandfather and car owner Richard Childress originally ran and was later put into revered status by the late Dale Earnhardt, Dillon put on a performance that was Earnhardt-esque. Only eight cars were on the lead lap when Dillon took the checkered flag.
Brad Keselowski is the winner of this Feed the Children 300 Race. The race came down to fuel mileage, but he was able to save enough to make it to the end. This was Keselowski’s first series win of the 2011 season. He was able to dominate the Speedway and kept Kevin Harvick 1.18 seconds behind him.
