It is a wise move from DraftKings as the links between North Carolina and NASCAR are obvious. The state is the birthplace of numerous legends of the sport such as Dale Earnhardt Richard Petty and is also home to some of the most iconic tracks of all time, if feels like home to many fervent followers.

With historical links and attachments, North Carolina provides the perfect location for DraftKings’ entry into the betting scene in the state. With the signing of this agreement, the state will become a key focus in the NASCAR world, and then in doing so also will be a major market for NASCAR betting.

DraftKings will now join the lineup of exciting legal sportsbooks in North Carolina, offering a varied range of markets and bet types. In addition to DraftKings, multiple other partnerships are in the works ready to elevate North Carolina’s betting market and bring new customers on board with attractive NC sports betting promos.

The operators we already know that have confirmed partnerships in the Tar Heel State are FanDuel, ESPN Bet, bet365, BetMGM Sportsbook and Fanatics. It is also expected that Underdog Fantasy will also join the list, meaning bettors will also be able to access a platform solely focused on daily fantasy sports.
