NASCAR Championship Prize Money: How Much Does a Cup Series Winner Win in 2022?

It’s time to break the bank.

The 2022 NASCAR Cup Series season was one of the most unpredictable in recent memory. With 19 different riders holding the checkered flag, there was as much parity in the motorsport class as one could hope.

Now, the series has reached the last four. Previous winners were Chase Elliott and Joey Logano, having lifted the trophy in 2020 and 2018, respectively.

Christopher Bell and Ross Chastain are unexpected finalists. None of the drivers had finished a season of 36 races in the top 10 before this season. Now, they have the opportunity to paint their name in NASCAR history.

To the victor go the spoils. And it could change the spoils of Sunday’s win at Phoenix Raceway.
