NASCAR Betting Online: The 44th annual FedEx 400 comes again to Dover International Speedway in Dover, Delaware for what should be an exciting race benefiting a good cause. The FedEx 400 Benefiting Autism Speaks raises money for autism research and awareness, spreading information and understanding of autism spectrum disorders. In addition to the honorable non-profit work, the race is also an important stepping stone in the Sprint Cup Series, as the top drivers in the world come together to try to gain an advantage in the standings. You can head to the live lines to gain an advantage in some NASCAR wagering online before turning on the television to watch your bets in action.
The FedEx 400 roars to a start on Sunday, June 2 from Dover International Speedway and is available to watch live on FOX at 1:00 PM ET. It is the first of two visits to Dover in the Sprint Cup schedule, though the second event, the AAA 400, is part of the Chase for the Sprint Cup. If any of your favorite drivers perform best at Dover, this is the time for them to make a move into the mix for the Chase.
The most recent winner of the event, go figure, is Jimmie Johnson. The superstar is one of only four drivers to win the event at least 3 times in a career. Bobby Allison holds the record for most wins with 5, though a win this year would put Jimmie in the sole second position and would make him the only driver since Allison in 1983 to win in back to back years.

How to bet on Nascar FedEx 400 Benefiting Autism Speaks
The odds of a driver to win the FedEx 400 Benefiting Autism Speaks 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 FedEx 400 Benefiting Autism Speaks, 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 FedEx 400 Benefiting Autism Speaks 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 Fedex 400 Winner - Black flag for jumping restart costs Jimmie Johnson Dover win
A controversial call by NASCAR cost Jimmie Johnson a potential win Sunday at Dover International Speedway.
With 19 laps remaining in the FedEx 400 following the day's final caution period, Johnson was second and lined up to the inside of leader Juan Pablo Montoya as two approached the start/finish line for the restart.
But as the green flag waved it appeared Montoya slowed giving the advantage to Johnson, who promptly drove away from the field seemingly on his way to his third victory of the year.
NASCAR, however, did not agree and after reviewing the sequence determined Johnson had jumped the restart and black-flagged him forcing to serve a pass-through penalty down pit road.
Johnson finished a lap down in 17th. He "totally disagreed" with the penalty, saying Montoya was slow heading to the restart zone to the point he thought something had happened to the No. 42 car.

Matt Kenseth gambled by taking 2 tires during a pit-stop with 35 laps to go, and held on to win the Sprint Cup “Fed Ex 400 to benefit Autism Speaks” Sunday afternoon in Dover.
Jimmie Johnson and Carl Edwards dominated most of the race by combining for 324 of 400 laps led. But Johnson and Edwards took four tires each on their last stops, which ended up costing both drivers an opportunity to win. The pit stops occurred during a caution period with less than 40 laps remaining.
Mark Martin did not pit and led the way for the final restart with 34 laps to go. Martin had been running in the 14th spot prior to the caution.
Kenseth moved around Martin for the lead shortly after the restart and then ran in front for the final 32 laps around the one-mile, concrete surfaced track. Kenseth finished 2.1 seconds ahead of Martin for his second Sprint Cup Series win at Dover. He won here in June 2006.

Mr. Busch took advantage of a Jimmie Johnson mistake to pull away for the win on Sunday, "We snookered him on that one," Busch told his crew as he streaked past the finish line. "He saw us coming, and he sped."
"I wouldn’t say that we psyched Jimmie out. I mean, he’s won four championships so he’s pretty much been through all the head games in this world.
