How much does Scott McLaughlin make and how?

Roughly speaking, Scott McLaughlin earns around $500,000 per year from race winnings and his numerous brand sponsorship deals. Like most INDYCAR drivers, his lifestyle involves spending time away from home.

Since he kicked off his career, he’s bought a home, built a car collection and may have purchased some real estate investments. Many people want the passive income that investing in single family homes can bring.


He is admired by fans and competitors alike, mainly because:

➜ He has constantly gone up through the ranks

➜ He has a ton of respect for his competitors

➜ His work ethic, focus and friendliness are clear

And he has no plans to hang up the gloves early and retire in Bali.

INDYCAR Controversy

Not once has Scott McLaughlin drawn controversy during his career. I hope it stays this way well into the future as he’s a fellow Queenslander that I respect a ton! The Dick Johnson Racing Team has definitely looked after him, as will Team Penske now that Scott’s in IndyCar.

Scott does great interviews too:

Props to Chase and Dale for asking the right questions.

My Verdict

Scott’s professional racing career and skills behind the wheel are truly empowering and I hope his career continues for another decade to come!

In addition, his journey from humble beginnings to racing full-time in the Indy Racing League is enough to inspire anyone.

My key takeaways from this are:

➜ Open your mind to opportunities

➜ Surround yourself with the right team

➜ Hard work never hurt anybody πŸ˜‰

➜ Play the long game (10+ years)

And simply outwork your competitors along the way.
