Virginia NASCAR Races to Bet on

North Carolina may be the NASCAR capital but the roots of the series are deep in Virginia. Two of the series' most iconic tracks in Martinsville and Richmond provide the state ample opportunities for entertainment and sports betting.


Martinsville Speedway was built in 1947 and has been on the NASCAR circuit since 1949, making it the oldest active track in the series. It's also one of the shortest tracks on the schedule twice each year at just .526 miles round. Known for its flat corners and clothespin shape (and don't forget about the famous Martinsville hot dog), Martinsville's best bets each time the series returns to the track are typically headlined by any of the four Hendrick Motorsports drivers.


Coming onto the scene just four years after Martinsville is Richmond Raceway. Another short rack on the NASCAR schedule, the cup series returns to Richmond twice a year and has since the 1959 series with the lone exception in 2020. Since the latest Next Gen car hit the track the racing hasn't been the most entertaining but you can always up the stakes betting on Richmond NASCAR odds.

Are There Any NASCAR Promotions?

There are no new-user Virginia sportsbook promos available at this time but sportsbooks will often offer promotions around big races. The fall Martinsville race is race 9/10 of the NASCAR Playoffs and often a favorite fans to place wagers on so it's a good time to find bonuses to take advantage of.
