Best Answer

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.
