Well that didn’t take long!
They have officially launched daily fantasy NASCAR, and my inner Ricky Bobby is pumped!
Now I admit that I’m more of a fan of Talladega Nights than I am of NASCAR but I still think it’s pretty cool.
SHAKE AND BAKE!
NASCAR is such a huge industry that I’m not surprised to see this move by Draftkings.
NASCAR is a billion dollar industry, and do you know how many Rednecks it takes to make a billion dollar industry?
More than a Billion!
All kidding aside, Draftkings is the official fantasy partner of NASCAR and I think this is a great move by them on their quest to be number one in the DFS World.
This opens up a whole new target audience, and just like in racing, Draftkings is flooring it with their $100,000 Slingshot Tournament!
The Slingshot is following the same format of all the other sports where it’s $27 to enter and first place will take home $10,000.
This is just more confirmation that DFS is here to stay. I can see NASCAR taking off and competing with the PGA as the next big major fantasy sport.
Who knows, maybe next year we will see a Million Dollar NASCAR fantasy contest. We saw it in Golf!
Say what you will about the sport, NASCAR has one of the strongest followings and if you don’t believe me, just watch a race for ten minutes.
Over 200,000 people attend every weekend and why not try to convert those fans to play daily fantasy contests.
