How Much Does A Driver Make?

Bob Pockrass, of Sporting News, wrote fascinating article about Landon Cassill’s deposition from his lawsuit with BK Racing over unpaid monies.

I found this article interesting because it gives insight into what development drivers make and the fluctuations in pay with which they have to deal.

When we think of the salaries of athletes, we usually think of the guys making millions to do something we consider “fun.” But, we often fail to realize that for these developmental drivers, it’s not as glamorous or as well-paying as we thought.

I highly recommend reading the article. Read it here.
