Not everyone is crazy about NASCAR betting, meaning casual bettors looking to throw down some action on the season’s biggest race may not be interested in tracking and playing a full portfolio of futures, props, driver matchups, and more from the offseason through the wave of the green flag.

In addition, it’s very unlikely to expect casual bettors to start thinking about NASCAR betting until the weekend of the race.

So, if you’re interested in trying you hand at betting the Daytona 500, wagering on the manufacturer to take the checkered flag is a good way to tiptoe into the NASCAR wagering waters.

First, by taking one of the three manufacturers — Ford, Chevy or Toyota — you’re essentially diversifying your action across many different cars. The racing at Daytona can be very unpredictable and often includes big wrecks that take out multiple drivers at once.

If you have only one or a handful of futures, your driver(s) can often have their days end early — it’s simply the nature of superspeedway racing. That can be frustrating for casual bettors looking for a full 500-mile sweat, only to see each of their bets wiped out before the race is completed.

But if you take a manufacturer’s full stable of cars, you should still have something to root for up until the final lap.

Therefore, betting the manufacturer is an easy to way to have a rooting betting interest for the entire Daytona 500 while also not overextending your bankroll if you’re a new or inexperienced NASCAR bettor.

And even more importantly, there’s also a nice betting edge on one of the three manufacturers to win the 2020 Daytona 500.
