    Read somewhere a year or two ago that she was then earning about 13 million a year. Salary was part of that.

    more than that at her peak in 2015. 13.8 million salary and endorsements. During the Go Daddy years she was making bank.
     
  5. IDK what DP's salary was but I am reasonably confident the Nascar gravy train is coming to an end with the exception of some residual value over the next few years.

    Yeah, but that will be true for many drivers that remain active.

  7. It sure will as with the dollars associated with sponsorships dropping like rocks there will be some backmarkers that may get 5-10 grand a race. It will be interesting to see how it all shakes out and the impact it has on established drivers retiring earlier than expected. I sure can see why Matt Kenseth has no appetite to hang around for pennies on the dollar.

    Love it when a stranger gets to decide/express their opinion on how much "i'm" paid...none of anybodies business. Get all you can. Take it with you when you go.

    Little bit shy of 90 million bucks, that should hold her for awhile I would think if she can't or doesn't want to continue for "pennies on the dollar" :D:p ya can't make this stuff up.:dunce:

    Can't be. I was told by Denny Hamlin that NASCAR drivers don't make enough.

    jws926 I need to think of something new for here

    Probably closer to 30-40 million after the tax man got his cut , but yes,enough to live on and be somewhat comfortable.

    Or are those figures post tax man taking his cut?

    Clicked onto her HSN show tonight and it said she'd sold 14,000+ pairs of the "today's special" leggings she first went on air with at midnight today, then was on tv all throughout the day. That girl's reeling in so much cash. Good for her. By how Ricky talked in interviews when it was announced she wasnt returning, she's working almost every day in some capacity.

    Between those two, they seem to have their finances, ahem, SET. She says they want to have kids together... better hope they don't want to be drivers... there goes the money.

    Don't forget she has the clothing line, workout/diet book coming out, and owns a vineyard/wine company. She said she doesn't race for the money because she doesn't need the money and has made enough, but at some point you'd have to imagine she'd not race for less than what she can make sitting at home working on her other projects.

    She is from what sounds like very successful in her off track endeavors, she has done very well and making her brand.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Hambone was pretty broke. He would have to work at it, but I have faith in him.
