MARTINSVILLE, Va. (KXNT - PRNewswire) - NASCAR and WynnBET, the digital gaming division of Wynn Resorts Ltd. that's responsible for Wynn's mobile sportsbook and casino app, have announced a multi-year national sports betting partnership.

WynnBET will collaborate with NASCAR to create and promote engaging sports betting experiences for racing fans across the United States.

"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, SVP and Chief Digital Officer, NASCAR. "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."

WynnBET will expand the portfolio of bet types offered on its mobile app throughout the NASCAR season, including pre-race and in-play bets. Bet types currently being explored include top-finishing drivers, driver matchups, stage winners and bets tied to the number of the winning car (over/under), among others. Beginning in 2021, WynnBET will offer live, in-play betting through a partnership with Genius Sports and live betting product, Betgenius, as the sport continues to strengthen its position around in-play sports betting.

NASCAR has experienced across-the-board growth in its sports betting handle and has added blue chip partners in the space in the last year including Penn National Gaming, BetMGM and IMG Arena.
