It depends on stuff like who his main sponsor is, or who owns the car he drives, but mainly on how good a driver he is. If he wins a lot of races he is going to win a lot of money. It is the same way with veteran drivers

No such thing as a "rookies salary". Each driver has their own agreement with the team owner and what they are paid is based more on what they bring to the table such as a good sponsor or recognition. Example would be the someone like a Danica Patrick with everything she brings an owner can be paid 10 million a year while a Ricky Stenhouse

JR may

be looking

at 1 million.

It depends on who their sponsors are and if they win, but on a normal basis they make about 6-10 million.
