The top 10, according to Forbes:

Earnhardt Jr. -- $25.9 million ($12.9 salary/winnings, $13M endorsements)
Johnson -- $23 million ($16.3M salary/winnings, $6.7M endorsements)
Tony Stewart -- $18.7 million ($12.7M salary/winnings, $6M endorsements)
Jeff Gordon -- $18.1 million ($12.6M salary/winnings, $5.5M endorsements)
Carl Edwards -- $13.7 million ($12.2M salary/winnings, $1.5M endorsements)
Kevin Harvick -- $13 million ($11.5M salary/winnings, $1.5M endorsements)
Patrick -- $12.9 million ($6.4M salary/winnings, $6.5M endorsements)
Kyle Busch -- $12.5 million ($9.6M salary/winnings, $2.9M endorsements)
Kasey Kahne -- $12 million ($11M salary/winnings, $1M endorsements)
Keselowski -- $11.4 million ($10M salary/winnings, $1.4M endorsements

The reigning Cup Champion, Keselowski gets paid less than Danica Patrick - I'm somewhat surprised and not surprised at the same time. If this was based on talent... Wink

Well, this is an entirely different proposition - but you are right! Laughing

Some of the pay of drivers just surprised me in general. Carl Edwards and Harvick are paid that much, they're excellent drivers and have won a lot, but neither are Cup Champions.

Earnhardt Jr's pay...well, that must makes me feel sad. Razz

If you take the endorsements out of it you get a very different list.

Jimmie Johnson 16.3m
Dale Jnr 12.9m
Tony Stewart 12.7m
Jeff Gordan 12.6m
Carl Edwars 12.2m
Kevin Harvick 11.5m
Kasey Kahne 11m
Brad Keselowski 10m
Kyle Busch 9.6m

Then I assume a few more

Danios Patrick 6.4m
