Coca-Cola 600 Purse & Payout: How Much Will Winner Make?

Buckle Up for Big Bucks as we take a look at the Coca-Cola 600 Purse and Winners Payout.

We’ll dive into the Coca-Cola 600 purse, revealing the estimated winner’s share and review the past Coca-Cola 600 winners.

The Coca-Cola 600 is one of NASCAR’s crown jewel races, celebrating and honoring our fallen heroes during Memorial Day Weekend. In addition to the tremendous amount of recognition drivers receive for winning it, is a very large payday which accounts for around 8-10 percent of the Coca-Cola 600 purse. That’s a little less than half as much as this weekend’s Indy 500 purse but one of stock car racing’s largest payouts of the season.

What is the 2024 Coca-Cola 600 Total Purse?

According to Fox Sports NASCAR reporter Bob Pockrass, the total Coca-Cola 600 purse is just over $9.8 million. This year’s total purse is about $400,000 more than last season’s and should award the winner between $700,000 to $900,000.

NASCAR’s top series has been racing at Charlotte Motor Speedway since the 1960 World 600 on Sunday, June 19th in, well, 1960. We’ve come a long way since that first race where 60 cars participated. Over the years of coming to Charlotte, NASCAR’s home, there have been multiple drivers to win one of the sport’s crown jewel events multiple times.

The driver with the most Coca-Cola 600 wins is Darrell Waltrip who outlasted the field a record five times during his career. Just behind him is 7-time Champion Jimmie Johnson who won the race four different times including three straight from 2003 to 2005.

Tar Heel state drivers have represented well on their home track, with the top North Carolina NASCAR drivers claiming victory at the 600 numerous times. The King, Richard Petty, did so twice in 1975 and 1977. The Intimidator Dale Earnhardt grabbed the checkered flag a trio of times going back-to-back in 1992 and 1993. With the most recent being 2023 NASCAR Cup Series champion Ryan Blaney. See all the past Coca-Cola 600 winners below.
