By Sree Varma | December 12, 2018

Sportradar has announced a new multi-year deal with NASCAR.

As part of the agreement, Sportradar’s Fraud Detection System (FDS) will oversee the global betting activity and prevent any sign of fraud for all races across NASCAR’s three largest events: Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

NASCAR will also benefit from Sportradar’s Education and Prevention Services, including a betting integrity program, and robust betting-related rules and policies.

Andy Cunningham, Sportradar’s Director, Global Strategy of Integrity Services, said: “We are honoured and excited to partner with NASCAR in what is an important time for US sports following the Supreme Court sports betting case decision earlier this year. We look forward to supporting NASCAR in installing a best-in-class integrity framework to protect their sport and its constituents.”

NASCAR VP of Global Media Strategy and Distribution Brian Herbst said: “It is critical to be proactive in developing safeguards that protect NASCAR’s on-track product from any potential integrity threats. Sportradar is the leader in this space and knowing that our races will be monitored extensively, while also equipping our industry with the tools and knowledge they require, gives us peace of mind in being able to preserve the integrity of NASCAR as the US wagering market continues to open.”

Sportradar’s FDS is currently used by over 75 sports bodies around the world – including the NBA, NHL, MLS, FIFA and MotoGP.
