NASCAR Betting Online: Are you hungry for some NASCAR Nationwide Series wagering? Because the Food City 250 is on its way to feed your appetite for fast cars, big wrecks, and NASCAR betting online, three things any self respecting race fan loves. Do not look any further than the live lines at BookMaker at this one, as they have all the spreads, odds, and futures you need to turn the Food City 250 into a smorgasbord of cash and excitement.
The Food City 250 takes place at the Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tennessee, one of the finer venues for a stock car race this country has to offer. With all the action coming to you live on ESPN at 7:30 PM ET on Friday, August 23, this is a perfect chance to throw down a wager and then watch your prediction unfold in front of you.
The Food City 250 is a race dominated by back-to-back winners. Since 1985, five drivers have won in consecutive years. It started with Brett Bodine in '85-'86, then goes to Larry Pearson the following two years, Brett's brother Todd Bodine in '92-'93, Kevin Harvick in '00-'01, and finally Kyle Busch in 2010 and 2011.
Last year's winner, Joey Logano, looks to be the favorite then thanks to that trend. It was Logano's first win at the Food City 250 and the third straight victory for Joe Gibbs Racing. Logano will look to continue the back-to-back trend, as well as his team's current run.
Head to BookMaker's live lines now to get in on the Food City 250 for some NASCAR nationwide series wagering action. There you will find all the odds and futures you could want for your NASCAR betting online.
How to bet on Nascar Food City 250
The odds of a driver to win the Food City 250 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 Food City 250, 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 Food City 250 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 Food City 250 Winner - Kyle Busch dominates in victory
Friday night's Food City 250 wasn't exactly a battle royal, as far as the outcome was concerned. Heck, it wasn't even a food fight.
In fact, when Kyle Busch wins the Coors Light Pole for a NASCAR Nationwide Series race, as he did Friday afternoon at Bristol Motor Speedway, the rest of the field might as well start writing concession speeches.
Pulling away from runner-up Brad Keselowski over a green-flag run that consumed the final 72 laps, Busch won his sixth NNS event at the .533-mile short track. The victory was his ninth of the season and the series-record 60th of his career.
In winning for the 15th time at Bristol across NASCAR's top three series, Busch led 228 of 250 laps. The pole he won earlier in the day was his sixth of the season. Each time, Busch has gone on to win the race.
2012 Food City 250 Winner - Logano gets 1st Bristol victory in Nationwide race
Joey Logano used an early pit stop and a dominant car Friday night to win at Bristol Motor Speedway for the first time in the Nationwide Series.
Logano chased down Kevin Harvick, then held on over a series of late cautions for his sixth victory of the season.
Logano led 119 laps but finished fourth in March. A year ago, he was second after leading 12 laps.
Defending series champion Ricky Stenhouse Jr. was second, followed by Kyle Busch, Austin Dillon and Elliott Sadler.
Danica Patrick, who struggled all day at Bristol, rebounded to finish ninth. It's the third-best finish of her career and the fifth top-10 in Nationwide. She'll also race in the Cup event Saturday night.
Stenhouse and Sadler had contact on the final restart, with three laps remaining in Friday night's race. Stenhouse immediately went to Sadler's car and apologized.
Stenhouse cut three points from Sadler's lead, and trails Sadler by 19 points in the championship race. Sadler wasn't impressed with Stenhouse's apology.
2011 Food City 250 Winner - Kyle Busch held off Joey Logano in a near-dead heat
Kyle Busch pulled off his 50th Nationwide Series win, after managing to hold off his Cup team mate Joey Logano to the line in a near-photo finish in the Friday night Food City 250 race at Bristol Motorspeedway.
Busch had led the first half of the race - all 112 laps - only to get passed in traffic by Clint Bowyer who managed to retain the lead through pit stops and a sequence of rapid-fire cautions until Joey Logano took over in front by staying out when others pitted.
Busch's 50th series win finally beats the record held by Mark Martin to put Busch into the history books - and still aged only 26.
