It takes three things to be a well-paid NASCAR driver: driving skill on the track, good equipment and charisma. Driving skill gets you consistent Top Ten finishes. Good equipment keeps you on the track in the first place...who wants their logo on a car that makes 400 miles and blows up every week? Charisma puts you in commercials, because the only thing anyone buys from an annoying person is a Shamwow--and Vince doesn't drive NASCAR.
