Spending more time at home wouldn't be as bad if there were live sports to watch. After what felt like an eternity, sports are slowly starting to go back live, and my buddies and I couldn't be more excited.

We're all sports fanatics, and while we all have our go-to sport, we're all super pumped for the return of Nascar this weekend.

The groupchat's been blowing up, and my friend suggested we all check out FanDuel Sportsbook to place some bets and make the live-action more exciting. I've placed bets on big sporting events here and there, but my pal told me that FanDuel Sportsbook is easy to use and has an awesome offer for first-time users.

You can bet online, or download the FanDuel app (available for iOS and Android). To get started, they'll ask you for some basic info, like your age and social security number, so they can keep your info safe and stop players and coaches from betting!

Your first bet is risk-free, so even if you lose, you can get up to $500 in site credit - good as cash. Even if you're not a total pro when it comes to betting, FanDuel Sportsbook makes it easy. You can make different kinds of bets, like standards, teasers, and round robins - I didn't know what those were before I started betting with FanDuel, but after reading their betting guide, I know what I'm doing.

I can't wait to bet on some the ongoing races this weekend, and luckily there are tons of Nascar races happening in the next few weeks. You can see the full schedule and keep up with the action in the FanDuel Sportsbook app.

UPDATE: The Pocono Raceway will host the Pocono Organics 325 Cup series race this Saturday, and the Pocono 350 on Sunday! Place your risk-free bet today!
