However, in recent years due to competition and internal disagreements, this uniquely American form of auto racing betting has suffered a major hit in terms of popularity. But with a new resurgence heading into the 2008 season, there doesn’t appear to be any shortage of action in Indy car betting this season.
Indy car betting was once the unprecedented top of the auto racing betting heap in the U.S. But with the splintering of the Indy car betting world in the mid 1990s and the rise of NASCAR betting at roughly the same time the popularity of Indy car betting has waned over the past decade. But with new stars on the rise and the competition getting stronger every year, auto racing enthusiasts have much to look forward to this year in when the Indy car betting season gets underway.
Last year’s Indy car betting champ Dario Franchitti will not be back to challenge for his title; the field looks wide open for a new Indy car betting champ to emerge. As most auto racing betting fans know, the Scotsman has left the world of Indy car betting to try his hand at driving stock cars. However, that doesn’t mean that the Andretti Green team will not be able to retain the Indy car betting title. Former Indy car betting champ Tony Kanaan has been in contention for the sports top prize year in and year out and 2008 could be the year he returns to the top of the Indy car betting pinnacle.
But he’ll face plenty of challenges from Indy car betting stalwarts Dan Weldon and Sam Hornish. Both former Indy car betting champs are among the favorites to add to their collection of driving titles. These drivers have two of the top crews in all of Indy car betting and obviously their driving ability is beyond reproach.
And there are also several wild card drivers who could also emerge as surprise champs in the upcoming auto racing betting season. Marco Andretti the grandson of the legend Mario has shown streaks of brilliance and may finally have the maturity to break through to the upper echelon of auto racing betting. And of course no talk of Indy car betting titles would be complete without the mention of Helio Castroneves a supremely talented driver that has yet to live up to his Indy car betting potential.
