I am excited about this, so I am pulling out some inappropriate GIFs to celebrate.
As the NASCAR playoffs continue to wind down, Spider and I are trying to give gamblers something to look at each weekend, and this week, the good people at the Barstool Sportsbook graciously gave us a crossover bet with the NFL… Which I think is pretty fucking cool.
There is no free sweatshirt or membership to an exclusive club… It's simply opting-in on the app, placing a bet on the featured head-to-head matchup that Spider and I came up with, and, if you win, you get a risk-free $10 bet for Monday Night Football on 11/1.
It's enough to make me bounce up and down… But not too much.
Here are a couple more instructions, and you can find the opt-in on the banner of the Sportsbook right now.
And for the first part of this promotion, the NASCAR Head-To-Head Featured Matchup this week pits Chase Elliott vs. Kyle Busch.
This will be “The Bubble Battle” as Busch currently occupies the last transfer spot for the Championship 4, while Elliott is 8 points behind in 5th.
So a good day by either driver in Kansas would go a long way towards advancing their chances of making it to the finale event at Phoenix where Spider and I will be in attendance in shirts with no sleeves.
Elliott has the highest average finish of any driver at Kansas (6.0) and won the Kansas playoff race in 2018, while Busch is the most recent Kansas winner, having picked up a win in the Spring race earlier this season.
I don’t know much, but this seems like a coin toss… And Spider (reaching simp-like levels of support for the number 9 car) will continue to take Elliott, while I will ride with Rowdy.
NASCAR's Hollywood Casino 400 from Kansas Speedway starts today at 3 PM EST and can be seen on NBCSports.
Take a lap.
