NASCAR Betting Online: The Chase for the Championship heads to Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas, as 43 drivers will take the green flag in the Hollywood Casino 400 this October. All eyes will obviously be on the 12 drivers that are involved in the Chase for the Championship, though everyone in this field would love to capture the checkered flag in this Hollywood Casino 400.
This race has been known by a number of names since its inception in 2001. What originally started as the Protection One 400 has also been known as the Banquet 400, LifeLock 400, and Camping World RV 400.
The fastest speed ever posted here at Kansas Speedway was held by Mark Martin, who averaged 137.774 MPH in the 267 laps run.
Johnson is going to be the favorite to win the Chase for the Championship once again, and he is going to be expected to run well at Kansas Speedway.
A Toyota driver has never won here at Kansas Speedway. Chevrolets have dominated, winning six of the nine races. Ford has captured two titles, while Newman rode the only Dodge to Victory Lane here in 2003.
Ready to sink your teeth into NASCAR betting action this October? It all kicks off with the Hollywood Casino 400, as there will only be another six races after it to determine who will win the Sprint Cup's most illustrious prize. If you're looking to bet on the winner of this race or on specific matchups, Bookmaker Sportsbook is going to have all of your options covered!
In 1996, International Speedway Corporation began exploring the idea of building a track in the Midwest. Bonds were sold in 1998 and construction on the 1.5-mile tri-oval began a year later.
Tickets for the 2001 season went on sale on Aug. 17, 2000, and within a week, nearly 80 percent of the season tickets had been sold. Paving on the track begin in September of that year and construction was completed in the spring of 2001.
Jeff Gordon won the first two Cup events there, starting with the inaugural race on Sept. 29, 2001.
How to bet on Nascar Hollywood Casino 400
The odds of a driver to win the Hollywood Casino 400 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 Hollywood Casino 400, 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 Hollywood Casino 400 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.
2012 Hollywood Casino 400 Winner - Matt Kenseth wins Hollywood Casino 400 wreckfest
Fans who came to Kansas Speedway on Sunday thought they were attending a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race.
Instead, they witnessed the latest episode of "Survivor."
Matt Kenseth won a wild war of attrition, otherwise known as the Hollywood Casino 400, beating Martin Truex Jr. to the checkered flag by .495 seconds to claim his third victory of the season, his first at Kansas and the 24th of his career.
Paul Menard ran third, followed by polesitter Kasey Kahne and Tony Stewart, who rallied from a 33rd-place starting position and spin on the backstretch during the race.
The slick, new racing surface at the 1.-5 mile track produced a track-record 14 cautions for 66 caution laps, and no one was immune from disaster -- not even a five-time champion.
Jimmie Johnson's quest for a sixth Cup title appeared to have suffered a severe setback on Lap 135, when the No. 48 Chevrolet spun in heavy traffic and backed into the Turn 4 wall. After leading 44 laps, Johnson had just taken a wave-around for a restart on Lap 128, having been trapped a lap down when Aric Almirola smacked the Turn 2 wall, and the resulting caution interrupted a cycle of green-flag pit stops.
2011 Hollywood Casino 400 Winner - Jimmie Johnson Dominates Hollywood Casino 400
The longest winless drought of Jimmie Johnson's career is over. The five-time Sprint Cup champion manhandled the field throughout the day and held off Kasey Kahne over a green-white checker to score his first victory since Talladega in April.
Kahne took second, over Brad Keselowski, Matt Kenseth, and Carl Edwards who suffered through a miserable day before surging late. Kevin Harvick finished sixth, followed by Clint Bowyer, polesitter Greg Biffle, Marcos Ambrose, and Mark Martin.
Johnson had the race well in hand before teammate Jeff Gordon's engine grenaded with only three laps remaining. The motor failure likely ends Gordon's bid for his fifth Sprint Cup title, while Tony Stewart had his second bad finish in a row. This time, he finished 15th after running in the top-five nearly the entire event. A late pit stop dropped Stewart to ninth, while he pitted again under the caution for Gordon's engine failure and slid through his pit stall.
2010 Price Chopper 400 at Kansas - Race Results
Greg Biffle and Jimmie Johnson got exactly what they needed Sunday at Kansas Speedway—Biffle by leaving the field in his dust and Johnson by persevering.
Biffle ran away and hid from the rest of the field in winning the Price Chopper 400—the third race in the Chase—by 7.638 seconds in front of Johnson, who rallied from his 21st starting position to claim the runner-up spot.
