How much does a NASCAR Driver make per Year? Average Annual Professional Race Car Driver Salary Range

NASCAR drivers have a real dream job. They get to take the top-of-the-line cars out for the ultimate spin every day and get paid for doing it. But how much is that pay? The average annual salary of a NASCAR driver is $1.5 million. In addition to this, NASCAR drivers also are at an additional 30 to 50% of what they win during races. You can even add to this corporate endorsements and merchandise for even higher earnings. Some NASCAR drivers also manage their own racing teams. Put this all together, and you have a very high salary indeed. Dale Earnhardt, for example, earned more than $45 million in 2005 alone.
