2016 NASCAR Pennsylvania 400 Purse and Prize Money Breakdown

With the Combat Wounded Coalition 400 in the books, NASCAR now takes its season to Pocono Raceway for another installment of the Pennsylvania 400 race.


While there’s no question that the Brickyard 400’s prize purse is much more extravagant compared to most other races in any given season, drivers are still in line for a huge payday this week if they can conquer the legendary Tricky Triangle. Let’s all find out how much dough is in store for our beloved NASCAR drivers below.

Afterwards, head on over to our preview of the Pennsylvania 400 itself to start placing bets on this weekend’s action yourself and hopefully win big bucks just like these famed speedsters.

It’s quite unfortunate but there’s no proper way of telling whether or not the 2016 Pennsylvania 400 will have a more sizeable purse compared to last year’s race. As we’ve already mentioned in our past editions of this feature, NASCAR has stopped releasing information about the prize money distribution for their races beginning this season. However, that didn’t stop us from making an accurate guess as for how much cash is in store for this weekend’s field of drivers.

Based on last year’s data on the Windows 10 400’s (former name of the Pennsylvania 400) final results, 21 of the 43 drivers from the field received a six-digit haul at the end of the race. Defending champion Matt Kenseth took home a whopping $233,601 in prize winnings last year. He is pegged at +550 to retain his title this coming weekend. To find out more about the cash prizes the NASCAR drivers pocketed in the 2015 Windows 10 400 race, check out our detailed purse breakdown below.
