NASCAR Betting Online: If you're looking for the best advice for NASCAR betting, you've certainly come to the right place. Here at Bookmaker sportsbook we're previewing the 2014 Sprint Unlimited Daytona on February 15th, 2014 at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida airing at 8 p.m. EST on Fox Sports 1 featuring Denny Hamlin, Kyle Busch, Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt Jr. The race kicks off the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series racing season.
The 66th season of stock car racing is set to get underway with the 2014 Sprint Unlimited Daytona on February 15th, 2014 at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida. The 75-lap race is a non-scoring event, but includes a large purse for the winner. This event features a maximum of 28 drivers and is by invitation only. For the second year in a row, fans will have the opportunity to vote for for key elements of the race including the number of laps in each of the three segments as well as the lineup for the start of the race and the final segment restart.
Jimmie Johnson won the 2013 Sprint Cup championship, his sixth career title. He has only won the Sprint Unlimited one time, in 2005, but should still be considered a contender based on his career track record of success. Last year's winner was Kevin Harvick. The 38-year-old California native also won the event in 2009 and 2010.
Denny Hamlin comes in as the most successful driver, having won four poles. Kurt Busch has won this event in two of the past three years so he should be considered a threat as well. The top drivers are back at it for 2014 with the usual suspects expected to be the favorites in NASCAR betting.

How to bet on Nascar Sprint Unlimited
The odds of a driver to win the Sprint Unlimited 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 Sprint Unlimited, 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 Sprint Unlimited 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.
2014 Sprint Unlimited Winner - Denny Hamlin wins crash-marred Sprint Unlimited at Daytona
After missing four races and struggling for most of the 2013 season with a back injury, Hamlin faces a lot of questions entering 2014. He started answering those questions by winning a thrilling victory to kick off the new year.
With a broken bone in his back causing him pain, Hamlin suffered through a miserable season last year. He won the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway, however, and came out with guns ablazing Saturday night.
Hamlin made a daring three-wide move for the lead with two laps to go and then helf off Brad Keselowski and Busch to win a race that was marred by a big crash that took out nearly half the field.
2013 Sprint Unlimited Winner - It only took 15 laps for a demolition derby to begin in Saturday night's Sprint Unlimited
NASCAR's season-opening Sprint Unlimited exhibition race went to Kevin Harvick on Saturday night, the third time he's won the race formerly known as the Shootout in the last five years. Harvick is leaving RCR for Stewart-Haas Racing after this season.
It was a special night for Harvick, who killed his engine trying to do a burnout and had to be pushed to Victory Lane. His son Keelan, who sat in his father's car and left a shoe in it before the race, performed his first forward crawl.
?Confident his team will be able to stay together in a potentially awkward situation, Harvick said the group is "going to have a helluva lot of fun racing, having a good time, doing our jobs.
Crew chief Gil Martin, buoyed by the exhibition victory and a promising start to the new season, vowed to do "whatever it takes" to win the championship this season.
2012 Budweiser Shootout Winner - More Carnage Than Competition
Saturday's latest version of NASCAR's special event at Daytona International Speedway was just that - 'special' - as millions of dollars in prime racing equipment was turned into scrap metal.
In all, 18 of the 25 starters were mangled in a quartet of wrecks that literally had drivers 'upside down with their hair on fire.' We don't mean to make light of this stuff - there's nothing funny about seeing cars occupied by humans careening out of control, on fire and slamming into walls at nearly 200 miles an hour.
Half of the field in Saturday's race - 12 of the 25 cars entered - did not finish the event. While there is no official count, it's almost a certainty that none of those cars will ever race again. That means that several team owners had to swallow at least $150,000 worth of twisted metal Saturday night.
2011 Budweiser Shootout at Daytona Results
NASCAR’s dress rehearsal for the Daytona 500 was an interesting display of dancing in the dark.
Kurt Busch won the Budweiser Shootout at Daytona International Speedway compliments of his "teammate for the day" Jamie McMurray on Saturday night.
McMurray, the defending Daytona 500 winner, knew the race would come down to picking a dancing partner. With his teammate Juan Pablo Montoya eliminated from the race in an eight-car pile-up on Lap 28, McMurray opted to pair up with Busch — a friend off the track and someone he felt he could trust.
The final pass, though, was ruled illegal as Denny Hamlin was disqualified for going below the out-of-bounds line.
It made Busch, who actually crossed the finish line in second place, the first Dodge driver to win the non-points race that has opened Speedweeks for the last 33 years.
