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 NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race, which will be held on Saturday, May 18th, 2013 at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Charlotte, North Carolina, featuring Jimmie Johnson, Carl Edwards, Kurt Busch and Tony Stewart.
Jimmie Johnson will look to defend his NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race title and cash in on another $1 million payday when the event is held on Saturday, May 18th, 2013 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Johnson has won the race three times in his career, which is tied with Dale Earnhardt and Jeff Gordon for most all-time. He is a five-time Sprint Series champion and has the points lead this year so there is little to question his favorite status in NASCAR betting.
The race has a new format this year. There will be four 20-lap segments and then a final 10-lap sprint to the finish. The positions for the final segment will be determined by the average finish in the first four. Sprint Cup drivers who have won a race this year or in 2012 are automatically eligible, as are those who have won this race in the past 10 years. Other ways to qualify include being a Sprint Cup champion within the past 10 years or by capturing the Sprint Fan vote. Twenty-six drivers, including Danica Patrick, are currently eligible to capture the fan vote, which goes until the day of the race. Kasey Kahne took full advantage of getting voted into this race in 2008, winning the whole thing.
Other recent winners of the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race include Carl Edwards, Kurt Busch, Tony Stewart, Kevin Harvick and Matt Kenseth. The best drivers on the circuit will all be getting together for a lucrative purse, and Jimmie Johnson looks like the driver to beat in NASCAR betting.

How to bet on Nascar Sprint All-Star
The odds of a driver to win the Sprint All-Star 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 All-Star, 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 All-Star 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 Sprint All Star race Winner - Jimmie Johnson Cliams His Fourth Victory
It rained, but it didn't pour on the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
The night started with an, uh, interesting National Anthem. It ended with another runaway victory by Jimmie Johnson—the man they call Five Time, who became the first four-time champion in the history of the event. In between, there was a 45-minute rain delay and a reasonable if not overwhelming amount of action.
There were subplots all over the place: boyfriend battling girlfriend; brother fending off brother (Kurt Busch and Kyle Busch each won two of the first four segments before surrendering the fifth that was worth $1 million to Johnson); and a new format that seemed at times to confuse everyone trying to explain it on television.
As with most All-Star Races, there was good to go along with the bad, and vice versa.
2012 Sprint All Star Race Winner - Jimmie Johnson Claims Third All-Star Victory
Jimmie Johnson became the third three-time champion of the Sprint All-Star Race Saturday night, joining Dale Earnhardt and Jeff Gordon as drivers to three-peat. Johnson also won in 2003 and 2006. Johnson led every lap of the final ten-lap dash to pick up the $1 million payday. It continues a terrific week for Johnson, who won last Saturday's Southern 500 at Darlington to give Rick Hendrick his 200th win. His team then claimed the win in Thursday's Pit Crew Challenge.
It is the seventh All-Star win for Hendrick. The legendary car owner easily leads his peers in that category.
Brad Keselowski finished second, ahead of Matt Kenseth, Kyle Busch, and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Kevin Harvick, Marcos Ambrose, Kurt Busch, Kasey Kahne, and Ryan Newman rounded out the top-10. A.J. Allmendinger, who contended all night after transferring with his runner-up finish to Earnhardt in the Sprint Showdown, took 11th-place.
All but two drivers finished the race. Defending race champ Carl Edwards and Greg Biffle each blew their Roush-Fenway Ford engines in a spectacular fireball.
the 2011 NASCAR All-Star Race didn't live up to the hype. That's disappointing, although it doesn't mean there's necessarily anyone to blame.
Every race has a winner, but not every race can be a winner. This one wasn't – unless you're a fan of All-Star champ Carl Edwards, of course.
Just last year, the All-Star Race was one of the more memorable events of the season. There were wrecks, flared tempers, hurt feelings and drama – enough to fill not only newspaper columns and highlight reels, but a flood of television commercials that relentlessly hyped this year's edition.
In one ad, NASCAR President Mike Helton dressed up like a sheriff with the drivers acting as gun-toting outlaws. Another commercial replayed crashes and aired the raw, angry radio chatter between teammates over and over – a reminder to anyone that the All-Star Race was a time for drivers to go all out, with no points on the line. Track president Marcus Smith even offered to pay any driver fines for fighting.
The buildup was immense. But if the drivers were willing to mix it up a bit, there was a good chance the race could deliver.
In the end, though, as runner-up Kyle Busch acknowledged, the race was "tame."
Kurt Busch survived two late restarts and sped away from the field to win the Sprint All-Star race at Charlotte Motor Speedway Saturday night.
"It’s an unbelievable experience," Busch said. "It’s something that you sit there and you look at the greats that have won this race, the ones that have had so many years go by in between the wins, just to have an opportunity to go for it tonight" was a treat.
Busch appeared to have the dominant car early on, but his rim-riding saw him slip into the outside wall twice and drop out of the top five as Jimmie Johnson, Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin emerged as the top contenders.
"Way to go, boys!" Busch shouted on his radio after winning the race and the $1 million first place prize. "Woooo! A million cool ones!"
