Nascar bans drivers and teams from betting on races

As part of this season’s rulebook Nascar has banned all drivers and team members from betting on its races as part of new gambling guidelines according to The Associated Press.

Last year, Nascar partnered with Sportradar Integrity Services to help develop a comprehensive gambling policy in the wake of May’s US Supreme Court decision which legalised sports gaming outside of Nevada, the only state that had previously legally allowed it.

Nascar will allow its employees and members of racing teams to participate in fantasy sports relating to the three national touring series, Cup, Xfinity and Truck, but they may not accept prizes with a value of more than $250 in any of the games.
