The NASCAR Cup Series Championship Race

This November, the Phoenix Speedway will host the Nascar Cup Series Championship race. It is the culmination of the Nascar Cup Series, which mostly takes place on the East Coast.

We all look forward to this big race. While it is not the only one to take place in Phoenix, it is easily the biggest. It forms an entire weekend. It caps off the entire season. While the Champion of the season is determined by points, this Eliminator Round Finale comes with quite a bit of bragging rights.

This is such a big race that you can place futures bet on it year-round at many NASCAR betting sites. Of course, when the race gets a little bit closer, you will have many more options available, such as pole positions, props, and outrights.

 

Popular Types of NASCAR Bets You Can Place On Phoenix Raceway

Less experienced bettors might initially be thrown off by NASCAR Phoenix odds to win. Why? Welp, because there are so many of them given the different bet types available. To clear any confusion, we want to break down which wagers are generally available at sportsbooks: 

Race Winner

The most common of all NASCAR wagers is the race winner. This bet is simple in theory — picking the outright winner of a race — but much harder in practice since a field usually contains 40 different drivers. That difficulty is reflected in the betting odds, which are generally plus-money all around.   

Newbie bettors might be stuck on reading betting lines. What do those numbers and plus-or-minus signs even mean, right? No sweat. Let’s say Kyle Busch is listed as +550 odds to win Phoenix NASCAR.

The plus sign denotes he’s a betting underdog (as probably everyone else in the racing field is), but the positive sign also gives you a clue on a possible payout. If you were to bet $100 on a Busch victory, it pays out a profit of $550 if he indeed crosses the checkered flag first. Easy enough, huh? 

Driver Matchups

Matchup wagers are much more focused than the aforementioned race-winner bet. With this gamble, the betting field is narrowed down to either two drivers (head-to-head matchup) or four (group matchup). Bettors simply pick which driver in the group finishes best against one another — with no regard for how the rest of the event field shakes out. 

Prop Bets

If you’re looking for fun, then props are for you. We say fun because props can range on all sorts of outcomes, many of which have nothing to do with who wins the race. Think of props like side bets. Popular examples include which driver runs the fastest lap all-race long or how many caution flags will appear during a competition or a Phoenix Raceway special, how many crashes take place (more on this later). 

Futures

Futures are long-term bets. And by long-term, we mean well past the usual Las Vegas odds NASCAR Phoenix we already covered. Instead, futures are focused on events like the NASCAR Cup Series. Which racer will accumulate the most points and earn the title? That’s the most bet-on futures wager. Betting lines for it are available almost year-round and refresh with every new race result.

About Phoenix Raceway

NASCAR has a new home for its championship crowning — the Phoenix Raceway. Its very last Championship 4 race was moved to the track for the first time in 2020. It’s not known how long the season finale will remain in Phoenix, but the city is keeping the seat warm for now.

The move is interesting on NASCAR’s part given the Phoenix Raceway itself. It’s notably short at only one mile long (especially compared to the previous Homestead-Miami championship spot of 1.5 miles). Slower speeds and tighter confines are natural byproducts of short tracks, producing bumper-to-bumper racing and yes, an increased likelihood for crashes (hence the prop bet special).

Moreover, the race was also shortened from 400 miles to 312 at the Phoenix Raceway. That, plus the short track, leaves no margin for error for NASCAR’s final four remaining drivers to come championship weekend. 

The Season Finale 500 (measured in kilometers, not miles) isn’t the only NASCAR event hosted at the raceway. Much earlier during the season amid March, the FanShield 500 also takes place in Phoenix. The competition has been part of NASCAR’s Cup Series rotation since 2005.
