NASCAR drivers put their lives on the line for every race that they partake in, but they sure do get paid a handsome amount for it. Here’s a list of the top 5 wealthiest drivers that NASCAR has.
Making $15-20M just from endorsements, Kyle Busch sure is one of the richest drivers. The majority of his income comes from his successful racing career and team ownership - Kyle Busch Motorsports.
Although now retired, Tony Stewart is the only driver to win a championship in NASCAR, IndyCar Racing and Silver Crown Cars.
A net worth like that doesn’t come easy. Jimmie made $18M in the year 2018-19 alone making him the highest-paid driver.
4-time Cup Series champion, 3-time Daytona 500 winner and winning a total of 86 Cup Series, has made Jeff Gordon a household name adding to his net worth.
