Nascar has signed a sports betting and predictive data partnership with nVenue.

Confirmed:

  • nVenue will collaborate directly with the league to design and develop in-race odds for sportsbooks and operators
  • In-race markets will include unique betting windows such as stage results, qualifying, pit-road betting opportunities and more

Joe Solosky, managing director of sports betting at Nascar, said: “This collaboration epitomises a shared vision to entertain fans and enhance the race viewing experience. We are thrilled to pair our racing product with expert technology like nVenue’s to bring micro-betting to Nascar fans going forward.”
