Cost of a NASCAR Stock Car

Well, to start off from scratch, and to have a competive top 35 time, it takes about and initial investment of around 15-20 million, and from then on, its about 12 millions dollars a year. that's what sponsers are for. Your biggest expense is your pay roll and engines. engines can be upwards of 7-8 million a year.

From an official website:

*From the ground up, including the engine, a race-ready Nextel Cup car costs about $125,000 to build


When it comes to NASCAR jobs, where does all that fuel, err, money go? crunched the numbers for a mid-level standard two-car team. "For big name driving teams, multiply these numbers by one and a half or more":

  • Drivers' salaries: see above
  • Team salaries: $2.5-3.5 million, or an average salary of ~$30,000/year for ~100 employees
  • Travel: $1 million per team
  • Tires: $1 million per team ($20,000 per race weekend plus testing)
  • In-house engine program: $3.5 million+
  • Cars: $1-3 million per team

Yes. There are several racing series that use older NASCAR race cars, so they are available for sale. They are very expensive.

It would cost more to make a stock car street-legal than it would to buy a brand-new street car that your favorite driver's car is patterned after and have it decorated like a stock car at a body shop. People do that.
