Wynn Resorts partners with NASCAR

  • NASCAR and WynnBET have signed a multi-year deal that features the company as an authorized gaming operator for NASCAR.
  • WynnBET will be using its innovative sports betting products to help create and promote NASCAR betting.
  • WynnBET has also submitted an application to become a legal gaming operator for the state of Virginia that is home to two very important NASCAR race tracks.

MARTINSVILLE, Va. – NASCAR has announced its partnership with the digital gaming division of Wynn Resorts, WynnBET, making the firm an authorized gaming operator of the league.

WynnBET is the operator of Wynn’s mobile casino and sportsbook app and through the multi-year deal will now be working alongside NASCAR to promote and create an engaging sports betting experience for all racing fans.

“We’re excited to partner with such a deeply experienced and innovative team to drive engagement and expand our sports betting offerings,” said Tim Clark, NASCAR’s senior vice president and chief digital officer. “Wynn is a trusted and iconic brand and our new relationship advances NASCAR’s position in the rapidly evolving gaming space while delivering fans with yet another live-in race engagement tool.”

The company offers unique products that consist of a high-quality user experience, specific social betting mechanics, and one-of-a-kind experiences that drive engagement and attract new loyal customers.

WynnBET is working on launching a national legal sports betting business with the foundation of its innovative sports betting products and the offering of its best-in-class brand.

“Like Wynn, NASCAR is an iconic brand,” said Craig Billings, the Wynn Resorts president. “Together, Wynn Interactive and NASCAR will provide sports bettors in Virginia with one-of-a-kind experiences, both digitally and at NASCAR facilities in the Commonwealth.”

WynnBET Racing To Virginia

After the penultimate race of the 2020 NASCAR season in Martinsville, Virginia, WynnBET submitted an application to become a licensed and regulated gaming operator in Virginia.

Virginia sports betting was legalized after the passing of the state bill in April but has still not officially launched and the state could approve up to 12 online sports betting licenses before the start of 2021.

There are two of the most iconic NASCAR tracks in Virginia (Martinsville Speedway and Richmond Raceway) and pending the approval of WynnBET, the company will become the official online sportsbook of Martinsville and Richmond which would bring WynnBET Lounges to each of the venues.
