Best Answer

A NASCAR driver is paid by his or her team owner, as a salary or whatever deal they agree to. Earnings are entirely different, as they includes a driver's winnings, appearances, product endorsements, souvenir sales and possible sponsor payments. I think the highest paid NASCAR driver today is Jeff Gordon.
