Dover becomes only NASCAR track to allow sports betting on property

Victory eludes Almirola once again			Image by Harrelson  LAT

As the close calls and frustrating finishes mounted, and wins eluded him, Elliott, 22, could feel the pressure tighten each time he slipped into the No. 9 Chevrolet.

SHR's Aric Almirola had the lead with eight laps to go, but his bid to end a 143-race losing streak ended when teammate Clint Bowyer crashed to bring out a caution. His No. 48 Chevrolet was forced to the garage at Dover during the pace laps because of mechanical woes and he finished 36th.

And if you're feeling lucky, how about three-time Dover victor Matt Kenseth at 300-1?

The chase toward the title continues today at Dover International Speedway.

Chase Elliott had been burdened by lofty expectations that come as the son of a Hall of Fame driver and the replacement of a four-time NASCAR champion. As I've said to a bunch of people, it was probably the toughest day of my career.

DE launched full-scale sports betting in June, barely three weeks after the U.S. Supreme Court cleared the way for states to implement wagering schemes.

Because of a failed sports lottery experiment in 1976, DE was partially exempted from the 1992 federal ban on sports gambling that was recently struck down by the Supreme Court.

At Dover Downs and Dover International Speedway, single-game and championship wagering on professional baseball, football, hockey, basketball, soccer, golf and auto racing are now offered, with betting lines supplied by William Hill.

"They can do it all here", McGlynn said. I thought for sure we were going to go to victory lane here. "I'll be watching the window that weekend".

Whether or not these agreements will see full on sports betting available trackside, a la bookies at the (horse) races, at future grands prix is yet to be seen, but the building blocks are being put into place. "It's a cool little deal that they're allowing in that state".

"I won't be making a visit to that just because I don't gamble", Blaney said.

Phelps, recently promoted to president, said some of the language in the 2019 rulebook could include rules prohibiting drivers and team members from betting on NASCAR.

"We've had so many opportunities and been so close and had the vehicle to win and been in position, and I don't know, it just seems to not come through", a disconsolate Almirola said after the race.

The Delaware News Journal reported this week that NASCAR wagering has raked in just $60,000 since June 5; less than 0.2 percent of the total $39.77 million wagered on all sports so far in the state. "We chipped away at it all day long, we kept moving up through the field and this is kind of where we deserved (to finish) and we'll move on to the next race".

Johnson, who holds the Dover record with 11 wins, was an early hit when he dropped off 12 kids' bikes at Martin Truex Jr's hauler as an apology of sorts for triggering a wreck last week at Charlotte that denied both drivers a shot at a win.

He's now first, with Kevin Harvick second and Kyle Busch third.
