Not that this is news to anyone, but apparently being a NASCAR driver can be quite lucrative.
At least if you’ve driven for mega-teams like Hendrick Motorsports, Richard Childress Racing and Chip Ganassi.
Exhibit A on this is Casey Mears’ home, which was for sale as of last fall for an astounding $6.2 million according to Charlotte Magazine. The magazine called Mears’ home “the most expensive home in Charlotte.”
We’re not sure whether anyone took Mears up on his offer to buy it, but if they did, they’re certainly enjoying the “seven-car garage, wine cellar and tasting area, guest quarters and gourmet kitchen,” according to the magazine.
Apparently, it doesn’t suck to be Casey Mears.
