Indy Car Betting: Watkins Glen Preview

Indy car betting is full of history and historic tracks but there are very few locales on the bet on Indy circuit that have the heritage and tradition of the Watkins Glen track.

Located in rural New York at the Southern tip of Seneca Lake, Watkins Glen International is arguably the greatest track not only in Indy Car betting, but perhaps the entire country. On July 5th every fan will be focused on the Glen and the Camping World Watkins Glen Prix as some of the greatest open-wheeled drivers in the world go head to head in racing competition.

Indy Car betting enthusiasts wait all year for their sportsbook to offer odds for this event and it’s perhaps the best chance to bet on Indy competition during the year. The Indy 500 might be more well known but for real fans of racing nothing can compete with the challenges of this classic road course, and among the Indy Car betting drivers, this is the race to win. Whereas the Indy 500 is simply an oval with big, wide straights and four turns, the Glen challenges Indy Car betting drivers in every way imaginable with multi-directional turns, straights and elevation changes which make this the ultimate bet on Indy experience.

Built in 1953 this track has hosted every type of auto race imaginable including scores of Indy Car betting competitions. It’s a 2.5 mile track with 12 turns and is about as different from the Richmond track (site of the Indy Car betting race the week before) as you can imagine. Coming off this type of bet on Indy race it should be very interesting to see how drivers perform.

Helio Castroneves holds the course record at this legendary Indy Car betting course and has proven time and again that he can run fast here. He’ll certainly be among the pre-race favorites. But there are a handful of drivers that are capable of taking the checkered flag. One name that online sportsbook fans cannot ignore in the Indy Car betting odds is Scott Dixon, a three time champ here. Since the reinstatement of this race in 2005 after a 24-year hiatus, the only other man to win this competition is last year’s winner, Ryan Hunter.

A dark horse driver to watch out for in these Indy Car betting odds is young Graham Rahal. He’s run fast all year, capturing two poles but has had some bad luck and has yet to get a win. He’s a very good road course driver and with a bit of luck he could take his first Indy Car betting win at the Glen this year.
