There are a number of factors that go into figuring the purse payouts for NASCAR races, and it's about as confusing as the tax code... I think one factor is how the team did in points last season, but I'm not sure. Bottom line: it isn't just the finishing position, it's who finishes there.

I haven't looked at the win/loss comparison, but I would imagine it also has to do with payout structure. You may have one driver with a consistant 10th place finish, and another with a consistant 30th place, but the consistant 30th place driver may win 2 races and take home 2 much larger purses than the other driver's 10th place purses put together... hope that's as clear as mud.
