The winner of Sunday's Daytona 500 will not only walk away with bragging rights as the top finisher of the NASCAR Cup Series season opener, but also a nice chunk of change. How much money will that driver make? Well, that's a bit of a mystery. Back in 2016, NASCAR changed its policy and stopped disclosing racers' earnings in Cup Series box scores because of its charter system. The move frustrated fans in part because it eliminated interesting conversations about total winnings and made driver comparisons more difficult.Last year, though, NASCAR peeled back the curtain ahead of the Daytona 500 by announcing a record-setting purse would be distributed among 40 drivers. So far, NASCAR has kept the 2021 payouts private, so estimating the purse requires some guesswork.MORE: Will rain in forecast disrupt 2021 race?What is the Daytona 500 purse for 2021?2021 Daytona 500 purse: TBD ($23.6 million in 2020)NASCAR has not yet revealed details about the purse for the 2021 Daytona 500. Prior to the 2020 race, it announced a purse of $23.6 million, the highest total in the history of American motorsports. That's a far cry from the first running of the Great American Race in 1959, when Lee Petty's victory netted him nearly $20,000.In 2015, the last year the figures were released before the policy change, the purse landed around $18 million. How much money does a driver get for winning the Daytona 500?Again, NASCAR has not shared specifics regarding payouts based on finish, so don't take these as hard numbers.When Joey Logano took the checkered flag in 2015, he earned $1,581,453, which breaks down to just under nine percent of the $18 million purse that year. Applying that percentage to the 2020 purse of $23.6 million, the winner would receive approximately $2.07 million.A general range of $1.5-2 million seems like a fair estimate.List of Daytona 500 past winnersYear   No. Driver Team Manufacturer 1959   42 Lee Petty Petty Enterprises Oldsmobile 1960   27 Junior Johnson John Masoni Chevrolet 1961   20 Marvin Panch Smokey Yunick Pontiac 1962   22 Fireball Roberts Jim Stephens Pontiac 1963   21 Tiny Lund Wood Brothers Racing Ford 1964   43 Richard Petty Petty Enterprises (2) Plymouth 1965   28 Fred Lorenzen Holman-Moody Ford 1966   43 Richard Petty (2) Petty Enterprises (3) Plymouth 1967   11 Mario Andretti† Holman-Moody (2) Ford 1968   21 Cale Yarborough Wood Brothers Racing (2) Mercury 1969   98 LeeRoy Yarbrough Junior Johnson & Associates Ford 1970   40 Pete Hamilton Petty Enterprises (4) Plymouth 1971   43 Richard Petty (3) Petty Enterprises (5) Plymouth 1972   21 A.
