Austin Dillon is well known by NASCAR fans as one of the sport's most recognizable drivers. He drives the iconic No. 3 car for Richard Childress Racing, carrying the same number as stock car legend Dale Earnhardt. If he's not participating in a NASCAR Cup Series race, he's also driving part-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Dillon earned the Truck Series title in 2011 and the Xfinity (then Nationwide) title in 2013.
His most infamous moment came when he won the 2018 Daytona 500 by passing Aric Almirola on the last lap, immediately adding his name to an important list in NASCAR history. In 2022, Dillon is continuing his quest for a NASCAR Cup Series championship, while also adding reality TV star to his resume. With his new series Austin Dillon's Life in the Fast Lane premiering on USA Network, fans want to know how much he's worth. Keep reading to find out!
What is Austin Dillon's net worth?
Austin Dillon is currently worth an estimated $12 million, according to the website Celebrity Net Worth. However, that estimate likely doesn't include any income from his new TV series, which hit the USA Network on June 23, 2022.
Austin Dillon's talent and skill have certainly earned him a high profile, but he also comes from one of NASCAR's well-known racing families. Team owner Richard Childress is his grandfather, and his brother Ty Dillon is also a Cup Series driver.
Currently in the middle of his ninth season with RCR, Dillon has six top 10 finishes in the first 15 races. Like many athletes, he also has business interests outside of his sport. Dillon co-owns Team Dillon Management, an agency which represents several other NASCAR drivers including A.J. Allmendinger and John Hunter Nemechek, as well as golfers Chris Stroud and Brian Gay.
