A NASCAR crew chief will average around $200,000 a year on the job, but the more successful crew chiefs can earn upwards of $1 million a year.

NASCAR crew chiefs get bonuses and other compensation which causes their salary to rise. It also depends on how much the driver wins, since the crew chief gets some of the credit for the win. The more wins he gets, the higher a crew chief will be paid. Experience plays a part in the whole process. A crew chief doesn’t have a set salary because every season unfolds differently. The seasoned earn $900,000 or more a year.
