NASCAR Drivers Salaries

NASCAR has struggled to get good sponsorship deals, and as a result, salaries also witnessed a significant fall. In the 2020 NASCAR season, Kyle Busch received the highest $ 18 million compensation. Seven cup title winner Johnson earned the second-highest salary of $ 17.6 million.

But only these two players earned more than $ 10 million, while many drivers struggled to earn more than $ 3 million salaries. It was also witnessed that only top drivers earn money from endorsements or merchandise sales. In contrast, other drivers struggled to get any other income source except their base salary.

In the 2021 season, three drivers earned more than $ 10 million. Denny Hamlin earned the highest salary at $ 13.1 million, followed by Kevin Harvick at a $ 10.9 million salary.
