Faster than a bullet from a gun
He is faster than everyone
Quicker than the blinking of an eye
Like a flash you could miss him going by
No one knows quite how he does it but it's true they say
He's the master of going faster. -George Harrison

Per Speed article of Jan 2012
Dover purse and sanction fees for 2012 are $6.236 million for its Sprint Cup race in June and $5.567 million for September. However....
One other tidbit from an economic analysis article:The NASCAR television revenues are split three ways – 65 percent to tracks, 25 percent to competitors through the purse and 10 percent to NASCAR. Tracks actually get 90 percent of the television revenue and then the competitor allotment is included in the track’s contribution to the purse.
Not including what it gets from the NASCAR television contract, Dover is paying approximately $2.46 million in purse and sanction fees for its June race and $2.44 million for its September race. Its contributions are virtually flat – up about $11,000 for the year when compared with 2011.
The actual sanction fee that goes directly to NASCAR is not disclosed in Dover’s documents filed with the SEC, just what it pays combined for purse and sanction fees
http://www.econgroup.com/pdf/The_Eco..._of_NASCAR.pdfThis article discusses the economic structure and development of NASCAR stock car
racing, a sport that has grown dramatically in the past decade or so. Our analysis indicates that
NASCAR keeps its fees to host tracks low and the share of broadcast revenue to these tracks
high in order to provide a strong incentive for tracks to act in the best interests of NASCAR by
ensuring successful and well-run events. This fee structure makes track ownership particularly
attractive to NASCAR, which has come, through its common ownership of NASCAR and ISC,
to own a share of the tracks that host NASCAR’s Cup events.
