BetMGM waves checkered flag on first sponsored race weekend

29 May 2024

(PRESS RELEASE) -- BetMGM, a leading sports betting and iGaming operator, concluded the first-ever BetMGM 300 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway for the 2024 NASCAR Xfinity Series. Racing fans were treated to an unparalleled weekend at the track filled with interactive moments, thrilling performances and VIP experiences to complement the high-octane action on the track.

“The BetMGM 300 surpassed all of our wildest expectations,” said Kyle Wachtel, BetMGM Head of Partnerships. “Charlotte Motor Speedway is an incredible destination and was the perfect venue to create something special for the dedicated sports fans in North Carolina.”

- Local Heroes Become Race VIPs: In a salute to honor the local law enforcement going through trying times, BetMGM gifted an entire suite for Friday’s NASCAR truck series. Sixty-four members from Charlotte’s Police Force enjoyed the race from BetMGM’s exclusive suite along with concert tickets to the popular rock cover band, Hairball.
- Unique Gift for a Unique Race: Fittingly for the sports betting and iGaming leader, BetMGM redefined “winning it big” and built its own custom slot machine for the race that was gifted to the champion, Chase Elliott.
- BetMGM Speed Street: The fan zone area was electric all weekend with driver meet-and-greets, special games and musical performances. Fans got to hang out with Austin Dillion and take photos with the BetMGM-branded Richard Childress Racing show car. Following the race, singer-songwriter and North Carolina native Kameron Marlowe performed an entertaining set for guests on the Speed Street Concert Stage.

BetMGM currently operates in 29 markets with mobile and retail offerings. The BetMGM Sportsbook app is accessible on both iOS and Android, as well as via desktop at

As BetMGM continues to expand to new markets, responsible gambling education remains a key focus. BetMGM is proud to provide resources to help customers play responsibly including GameSense, an industry-leading program, developed and licensed to MGM Resorts by the British Columbia Lottery Corporation. Through the integration within BetMGM’s mobile and desktop platforms, customers can receive the same GameSense experience they have grown to count on at MGM Resorts properties nationwide. This complements BetMGM’s already existing responsible gambling tools which serve to provide customers with an entertaining and safe digital experience.
