2016 NASCAR Quaker State 400 Purse and Prize Money Breakdown

With the Coke Zero 400 in the books, NASCAR now takes its season to the infamous Kentucky Speedway for another installment of the Quaker State 400 race.

Let’s find out how much is in store for our beloved NASCAR drivers below.

It’s quite unfortunate but there’s no proper way of telling whether or not the 2016 Quaker State 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 their purse distribution beginning this season. However, that didn’t stop us from making an accurate guess as for how much dough is in store for this week’s field of drivers.

Based on last year’s data on the Quaker State 400’s final results, 26 of the 43 drivers from the field received a six-digit haul at the end of the race. Defending champion Kyle Busch took home a whopping $209,316 in prize winnings last year. He is pegged at +550 to win back-back Quaker State titles this coming weekend. To find out more about the cash prizes the NASCAR drivers pocketed in the 2015 Quaker State 400 race, check out our detailed purse breakdown below.
