Kevin Liles-USA TODAY Sports

Jimmie Johnson earned just over $1.5 million for his Daytona 500 win on Sunday after holding off Dale Earnhardt Jr. to take the checkered flag.

Jimmie Johnson took the checkered flag at the 2013 Daytona 500, and with it he earned a significant payday. The Great American Race is the biggest NASCAR event of the year, with a total purse just under $20 million. Winning the race not only leads to an immediate financial windfall, but also serves as a boost to the winning driver, who can nab endorsement deals and more for taking the Daytona 500 checkered flag.

Johnson earned $1,525,275 for his win on Sunday -- a nice windfall in addition to the glory of winning the Daytona 500. The total purse for this year's race was a little over $19.3 million, the largest in Daytona 500 history. The lion's share goes to Johnson, the winner, though Dale Earnhardt Jr. also pocketed over $1 million for his second-place finish.
