WynnBET, the digital gaming division of Wynn Resorts Ltd., has entered into a multi-year, national sports betting partnership with the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (Nascar).
The partnership will see WynnBET become an authorized gaming operator of Nascar, and the two organizations will collaborate to create and promote new sports betting experiences for fans across the United States.
Nascar’s SVP and chief digital officer, Tim Clark, said: “We’re excited to partner with such a deeply experienced and innovative team to drive engagement and expand our sports betting offerings,”
“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.”
Wynn Resorts’ president, Craig Billings, added: “Like Wynn, NASCAR is an iconic brand. 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.”
As the 2020 Nascar season nears its conclusion with its penultimate race in Martinsville, Virginia, WynnBET is formally submitting an application to become a legal gaming operator in the state.
If its gaming license application is approved, WynnBET will become the official online sportsbook of both Martinsville Speedway and Richmond Raceway, resulting in the construction of WynnBET lounges in each venue.
