There have been Nascar drivers that have died over the years. It is not on a yearly basis. The last Nascar Cup driver that died in an accident was Dale Earnhardt Sr. on February 18, 2001.
No driver has won all three in the same year, though many drivers have won two of the three.
it just has been a tradition. NASCAR just ended it 60th year
NASCAR drivers typically make anywhere from $1 million to more than $20 million a year. It really depends on if they are a full time driver, who they drive for, and their winnings.

The first Nascar Cup, Nationwide and Truck Series race is held at Daytona International Speedway each year.
This depends on where they place in races. The more they win, the more they get.
There have been four Nascar drivers who have won both the Bud Shootout and the Daytona 500 in one year.Bobby Allison - 1982Bill Elliott - 1987Dale Jarrett - 1996, 2000Jeff Gordon - 1997
525 600 kills in a year
I have heard figures from 150,000, to 200,000
The race schedule for NASCAR changes from year to year, but each driver can expect to race between 70,000 to 75,000 miles. Less if they are part time.
There are 36 Nascar Cup Series races in one year.
The Brickyard 400, which is the Nascar Sprint Cup Series race held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway each year, is 400miles in length.
It depends on how well they finish each race, team contracts, and sponser contracts. A full time driver can win from 2.5 million to 10 million. (May vary from many different drivers).
yes, there are about 3 new rookies each year
There is no set number. Sometimes Nascar can go many years without a fatality.
many accidents are caused each year by drunk drivers. too many to count! so do the world a favor. Don't Drink :)
It really depends on how many drivers he has and how much insurance he covers for his team. Also whether the team takes economy class or first class, how good his drivers are, how many repairs the cars make, and how many team members he has. Each driver has 20-30 sponsors that pay 4-10 million dollars a year ($80 million to $300/driver).
