Dale Earnhardt Jr. has a net worth of more than $300 million. He has racked up a decent net worth during his time racing and being an analyst for NASCAR racing.
Although he has a sizable fortune, apparently he isn’t that concerned with spending it.
According to a 2017 NASCAR press conference, Earnhardt will be lucky if he even grabs his wallet on the way out the door.
“Probably 50% of the time, I leave the house unintentionally without my wallet. And it’s a pain in the butt because I go over JR Motorsports, and I don’t have my key to get in the door, and I have to get someone to come down there and get me in, which is a little embarrassing for the boss and the guy who owns the building. But I really don’t spend money. I don’t really go buy stuff,” Earnhardt said.
As of 2017, he was making $21.4 million and Forbes had him listed as the No. 100 most paid athlete. He is enjoying partial-retirement as of 2017. Most of his money has come from his salary as well as endorsements, race winnings, and licensing.
Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s Florida House
While he isn’t really that fond of spending money, he didn’t hold back when he purchased his Key West, Florida house. An Ocean Sotheby’s International Realty video showcased everything that Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s house has to offer.
What is particularly interesting about the property is the pirate, nautical theme he has throughout. The style of the house is somewhere between beachy and a scene from “Pirates of the Caribbean.”
His house is in Old Town and has five bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, and was built in 1863. The house was originally built during the Civil War era and has a rich history. Some interesting features are a secret hatch door to watch people in the parlor and one of the deepest pools (13 to 14 feet) in Key West.
The house has deep wooden features and interesting decorations like model pirate ships. The kitchen looks like the inside of a ship with wheels at the end of the bar.
His pirate-themed retreat is buried in Florida’s native plants with a sunny patch of land to enjoy his outdoor dining area and pool.
Right now, according to Work + Money, his Florida house is selling for $3.7 million. He also owns a property in North Carolina that has a recreation of an Old West town, a NASCAR graveyard, a massive garage, and an enormous treehouse.
He and his wife, Amy, are a hands-on couple and also remodeled a neighboring house and sold it for $500,000. They even had their own four-part DIY Network reality TV series called “Renovation Realities: Dale Jr. & Amy.”
