Although Formula One is making gains in the United States, NASCAR remains the most popular form of auto racing in the United States. And that is also reflected in the betting window. NASCAR draws the most wagering activity in America when it comes to car racing.

Despite its status, NASCAR has fallen in popularity. Its decline has been based on numerous self-inflicted wounds. In 2004, NASCAR was at its peak, George Bush won reelection as president based in large part because of the support of “NASCAR Dads.” There was talk that NASCAR would become the sport of the decade. Instead, it suffered a rapid decline.

NASCAR’s problems began when it forsook its southeastern roots and traditions for new markets. Los Angeles, Chicago, and Indianapolis led the list of new venues and tracks. The move of the Southern 500 out of Darlington, SC, on Labor Day weekend was symbolic of how NASCAR forgot its ways. The Southern 500 was considered a sacred tradition. NASCAR paid a stiff penalty to fans for such moves. Eventually, NASCAR returned to the Southern 500 tradition, but only after significant damage was done.

Date: Sunday, February 18, 2024

Racetrack: Daytona International Speedway, Daytona Beach, FL

Track Length: 2.5 miles

Total Laps: 200


The 66th running of the Daytona 500 is the first official race of the 2024 NASCAR Cup Series season. The Great American Race is the most anticipated and chaotic event in American motorsports. As we typically see when racing on a superspeedway odds are relatively long even for the favorites. Considered a speedway specialist and a winner on the Daytona track in 2021, defending Cuper Series champion Ryan Blaney emerged as the betting favorite at most books with a slew of drivers close behind. A three-time Daytona 500 winner in the last eight races, Denny Hamlin is listed as the second favorite along with Kyle Busch. Read more

Just as damaging was the constant change of rules and car designs. In an effort to generate greater parity, NASCAR ended up making it worse. Fans threw up their hands and gave up after not being able to keep track of the constant rules changes, not to mention those schedule changes. The “Car of Tomorrow” design proved to be a disaster that further drove fans away. The public loved rivalries between the different automakers. But NASCAR ruined it with a generic car.

Fans were infuriated by the lack of personality in cars and drivers. There was too much of a corporate influence with the modern drivers. Wild and outspoken personalities disappeared. It took away from the personality of the sport.

NASCAR’s constant twerking with the aero packages on cars was another factor that turned away fans. The public believed that NASCAR was too focused on the wind tunnel and spoiler dynamics than on entertaining races.

Most emblematic of NASCAR’s fall was the race at the iconic Indianapolis Motor Speedway. At first, the annual race at Indy was a guaranteed sellout. But after those issues, you could not give away tickets. It became a humiliating embarrassment.

NASCAR also never recovered from the Great Recession of 2008-09. Sponsorships cut back, and many fans could no longer afford to travel long distances to races.

As we advance with a new generation of drivers, there is hope that NASCAR can reach a new generation of fans and regain its last glory.

Blaney won the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series championship at Phoenix Raceway ahead of Kyle Larson and William Byron after passing Larson for second place with 20 laps to go.

Blaney and Larson engaged in a fierce battle for second as race-winner Ross Chastain drove away from both of them. Blaney stalked Larson for multiple laps before finally clearing the 2021 champion and gradually building a gap.

The race was the first time since NASCAR instituted its winner-take-all final race championship format in 2014 that the winner of the final race of the season was not a driver racing for the title. The circumstance resulted in dueling burnouts at the finish line as Chastain celebrated the race win and Blaney celebrated the first Cup Series title of his career.

Blaney, 29, was ahead of both Larson and Byron when a caution came out on lap 274 of the 312-lap race for Kyle Busch’s spin. Blaney entered pit road in second and exited in sixth after Erik Jones and Denny Hamlin each took two tires on pit road, and Larson and Byron had faster pit stops than Blaney's.

But Blaney got past Byron quickly on the restart and set his sights on Larson as Hamlin faded from view.

Blaney was racing Larson, Byron, and Christopher Bell for the title on Sunday. While Larson and Byron ran in the top 10 along with Blaney for the entirety of the second and third stages, Bell didn't make it to the finish. His race ended in the second stage when his right front brake rotor exploded, and his car hit the wall.

The championship is the second straight for Team Penske after Joey Logano won his second career title in 2022.
