I would say A Nascar Driver makes more money. Only because A driver can make anywhere form $100,000 a race to $1,000,000. A fooball player makes for example $10,000,000 over 4 years, while a nascar driver makes about 8 million a year and 8 million times 4 years is 32 million. So by time a football player has his 10 milion a Nascar driver has 3 times that much..


Your premise is bad. Where do you get the idea that an NFL player would necessarily need 4 years to make $10 million. There are player that make more than that a season. Anyway. NFL generates more revenue than any other sports league in the world.

As far individual athletes there are many factors involved in that, but I would lean towards the richest NFL player will earn more than the richest NASCAR driver at the peak of their earning potential.

In spite of what many think, the "Most Popular" (most spectators, largest revenue stream) sport in the world is auto racing. It has been so for many years. While people think that Tiger Woods or Michael Jordan was the highest earner in sports, think again. For over 10 years, the highest earner in sports was Michael Schumacher, the 7 time Formula 1 world champion. Michael Schumacher was paid a base salary of over $32 million to drive 17 races a year, by Ferrari. When you ad in his winnings and endorsements, his ANNUAL income was well over $100 million! Tiger Woods got something on the order of $60 million over a 5 or 7 year contract! Not exactly in the same ball park.....
