WynnBET And NASCAR To Build Sports Betting Lounge At Richmond Raceway

Virginia’s Richmond Raceway will soon be home to a retail sports betting lounge. The popular NASCAR venue will leverage its partnership with Wynn Resorts to offer land-based sports betting at the track, according to NBC12.

This news is the latest development in a long line of good news for WynBET and sports betting in Virginia. WynnBET launched its Virginia sports betting platform last week, and bettors in the state can easily create an account and place wagers completely online. 

SVP and Chief Digital Officer for NASCAR Tim Clark said in a recent press release: “Our new partnership with Wynn Resorts is having a positive impact as NASCAR advances its position in the rapidly evolving gaming space. As we work closely with WynnBET to deliver a state-of-the-art race engagement tool for our race fans, we are grateful to the Virginia Lottery for leading this process and we look forward to welcoming this new experience in Virginia.”

Few Details For Now

The announcement of Richmond Raceway’s sports betting lounge is just the tip of the iceberg, and more information will undoubtedly become available over the coming months. Currently, WynnBET and NASCAR plan to start construction on the sports betting lounge “soon.” The original story also hints at a second sports betting lounge at Martinsville Speedway, though no details on that location are available at the time of writing. 

“We welcome WynnBET, an Authorized Gaming Operator of NASCAR, as a licensed mobile sports betting operator in Virginia,” said Dennis Bickmeier, President, Richmond Raceway. “We look forward to working closely with WynnBET as they launch the premier sports betting platform in the Commonwealth and expand our economic impact across the state.”

Virginia Sports Betting

Virginia has rapidly become a sports betting market to watch. The state has six online sportsbooks live, with more on the way. Here are the sportsbooks now available to Virginia bettors:

This week, however, more operators were granted temporary permits to launch in Virginia. Golden Nugget, Bally’s Corporation, and Barstool (Penn Sports Interactive) all received temporary permits and are expected to join the fray in Virginia soon.
