Show me the money: Where the 12 Chase drivers rank by 2015 earnings foxsports Oct 20, 2016 at 4:46p ET Show me the money Twelve drivers have qualified for the Contender Round of the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. Here’s how all 12 rank by money earned this season. NASCAR via Getty Images Sean Gardner 12. Kyle Busch, $3,559,145 Not surprising that Busch has earned less than the other 11 Contender Round racers given that he missed 11 races with leg and foot injuries. Getty Images Jeff Curry 11. Carl Edwards, $3,793,458 Although his first season with Joe Gibbs Racing got off to a slow start, Edwards rebounded to win the Coca-Cola 600 and the Bojangles’ Southern 500, two of the biggest races on the schedule. Getty Images Brian Lawdermilk 10. Kurt Busch, $3,807,641 After sitting out the first three races of the year, Busch returned strong, winning twice and consistently running up front in his Stewart-Haas Racing Chevrolet. Getty Images Jerry Markland 9. Ryan Newman, $4,393,328 Just like last year, Newman is in title contention on the basis of consistent finishes, not because of winning races in his Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet. NASCAR via Getty Images Robert Laberge 8. Martin Truex Jr., $4,458,606 Thirteen top-10 finishes in his first 15 races, including a victory at Pocono, have added up to a career year so far for Truex.

Jeff Gordon, $4,860,974 This, of course, is Gordon’s final season as a full-time driver, and he’s managed to keep his Drive for Five championship hunt alive so far. Getty Images Sean Gardner 6. Dale Earnhardt Jr. $5,109,475 The last driver to advance to the Contender Round, Earnhardt knocked out Jamie McMurray on the basis of a tiebreaker. Getty Images Robert Laberge 5. Brad Keselowski, $5,127,219 Although he’s flown somewhat under the radar this year, Keselowski has parlayed one victory and a string of solid finishes into an excellent season. Getty Images Jonathan Moore 4. Matt Kenseth, $5,324,094 Two years ago, Kenseth won seven races. This year, he’s already won a series-high five and could well add to that total. Getty Images Sean Gardner 3. Denny Hamlin, $5,594,892 Like all of his teammates at Joe Gibbs Racing, 2015 has been an excellent season for Hamlin, a two-time winner so far. Getty Images Jonathan Daniel 2. Joey Logano, $6,753,072 Winning the Daytona 500 began a very lucrative year for Logano, who is having his second consecutive championship-contending season. Getty Images Jared C. Tilton 1. Kevin Harvick, $7,516,246 The 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion has three victories, 10 second-place finishes and a whopping 19 top-five finishes in 29 races. No wonder he’s in the money.
