This is different for each driver, and based on the contract between the driver and team owner. Usually the driver gets a specified percentage of any prize money, with the rest going to the owner. The crew works for the owner for a specific pay, with bonuses usually attached for good finishes and wins.
I think most of the prize money will go to the team owner. However, the driver makes most of their money from t-shirt sales and etc.
Nascar owners get paid 15,000,000 to 60,000,000 depending on who the drivers are and also how many drivers he has
The money drivers receive from sponsors and NASCAR for each race, is divided among the whole team, including owners.
A NASCAR driver makes more money than a soccer player. NASCAR drivers also make a lot of money from sponsors.
A Nascar drivers pay is determined by how they do in the race. The drivers divide the purse with first and second place drivers being paid the most.
Driver salaries are secret and is between them and the car owner. Drivers also get money for endorsement's. I don't know if the owner gets any of that money or not. Sponsors pay an average of twenty million dollars to put their name on a car. This goes to the owner to run the team. Don't forget that Nascar fans are very brand loyal, and Nascar, owners and drivers get a piece of total endorsement sales. This explains why a Nascar sweatshirt can cost 65 dollars.
Since 2008 all fines collected from driver's go to The Nascar Foundation charity.
Fame and fortune, for lessor drivers, some money and some notoriety.
Salary (from sponsor) + bonuses (from lots of sources) + % of prize money (% differs by driver) = lots of money
This depends on where they place in races. The more they win, the more they get.
The Sporting News would be an excellent resource for someone wanting to see a current list of NASCAR drivers. This resource also lists if the drivers are full or part-time, how many races they have won, and how much money they have made driving for NASCAR.
Depending on how well you do (winnings) and how much they and the race itself pays.
They can't. You have to have lots of money to get in to NASCAR car.

Good Question! All fines are collected by Nascar, put into a penalties fund! At the conclusion of the season. The money is then divided up into equal portions, and given back to all owners, that raced in the season.
Female Nascar drivers can make just as much as the male drivers. It all depends on how the driver finishes in each particular race. Different races have different payouts. There is no discrimination, if a woman won the Daytona 500, she is guaranteed to win over $1 million.
Because they gave NASCAR more money.
That is a relative question. If you are a major owne, like Rausch ,you make a big heap of money. On the other hand, if you are a privateer, like Robby Gordon, you barely make enough to keep racing. Equality does not reign in NASCAR; capitalism does. Bottom line, NASCAR is a rich man's sport and the more money you have to sink into your team the better your results and the more money you make. That does not make big team owners evil, it makes them successful. It's the American way.
First thing to understand is the winnings, although credited to, are not the drivers winnings it's the car owners. The car owner and driver have a contract and what the driver is paid is based on that contract. The pit crew will often have part of their pay based on the finishing position of the car. It would be like a bonus, the better the driver and car finish the more money the crew can make.
The driver who has made the most money from NASCAR and is the richest is Jeff Gordon.
Well it depends on your skills, position you finish, and your sponsor. If your sponsor is very popular then it kind of means you get payed a little more.
If you own a Nascar team you probably don't make much money at all, and some might even spend more then they make. For drivers it all depends on who you work for, and for crew members it depends on what you do on the team. But as far as owning a team, there is an old saying about racing, "To make a small fortune in racing you start with a big one".
NASCAR generates more money annually as a whole sport than American professional football (NFL).
