Top 15 Most Valuable NASCAR Racing Teams

While NASCAR is not often perceived as a team sport, the business models behind America’s favorite motorsport are set up into teams. When a driver is signed to a NASCAR team, the driver shares resources and a car manufacturer with his or her teammates. The team helps drivers to get sponsorship deals. Teams are the reason some drivers are known for driving the “Monster car” or “FedEx car.” While fans just want their favorite drivers to win, teams form a win-win relationship between team and driver that helps both entities make more money. In addition to working with NASCAR drivers, some of these teams are involved in other businesses, such as retail car lots and engine manufacturing. Many teams are simultaneously involved in NASCAR and other types of racing, such as Indycar. Racing teams can easily become multimillion-dollar businesses, which begs the question: Which NASCAR racing team is the most valuable?
