PLAYERS: Jeff Gordon
Although many critics say NASCAR isn’t a “real sport” because racecar driving is just a bunch of people speeding and crashing, Jeff Gordon doesn’t mind. The 4-time NASCAR Sprint Series and 3-time Daytona 500 champion has earned more than $100 million by driving in circles. Recently, he sold his NYC apartment at 15 Central Park West. The final retail price is not open to the public, but Gordon originally listed it for $30 million. While everyone laughs at his sport, he laughs his way to the bank.
