Best Answer

It ranges because of driver popularity, and amount of wins. For example, Jeff Gordon makes annualy over 5 million dollars just for racing not for sponsoring anything. Now, a driver like Kenny Wallace might be lucky if he breaks the 1 million dollar mark. In other series it works the same. In the IRL Danica Patrick gets paid more than most drivers even though she is winless, but she is the covergirl of the racing scene.
