Marcus Ericsson Net Worth: Indy 500 2023 Runner Up Salary And Income

This article was last updated by on

The net worth of Marcus Thorbjorn Ericsson, a Swedish professional racing driver, is one of the most searched topics after the 2023 Indy 500. Let’s find out his actual net worth.

The 2023 Indianapolis 500 was full of hazards which followed controversies as well.

The Swedish racing driver finished second just behind Josef Newgarden. In the final 20 laps, a series of incidents with varying severity occurred, and the race was red-flagged three times.

The race ended on a controversial note, and runner-up Ericsson did not hold to voice his disappointment with the white/green finish.

During the post-race press conference, he said, “I don’t think it’s safe to go out of the pits on cold tires for a restart when half the field is sort of still trying to get out on track when we go green.”

“I don’t think it’s a fair way to end the race. I don’t think it’s the right way to end the race.”

His frustration was obvious as he was heading for his second Indy 500 win, but was held off in the second position after Josef Henderson overtook him with less than half a lap remaining.

Net Worth, Contracts & Salary

The Swedish racing driver hasn’t had his contract renewal with Chip Ganassi Racing. Ericsson’s current contract with his racing team is until the 2023 season.

The Swede has claimed that he’s not affected by the contract stale but wants to be “treated as a top driver.”

He is clear that he wants to continue driving the No.8 Dallara-Honda for the Ganassi.

His current deal was also signed in between uncertainties. Chip Ganassi Racing offered a contract to the Swedish driver only after his memorable victory in the inaugural Music City Grand Prix.

Moreover, Ericsson’s previous journey in Formula One garnered him quite some fortune. He drove for Caterham and Sauber, and earned $1,673,000, as per spotrac.

After the 2022 Indy 500 win, he took home around $3.1 million, while the race runner-up bagged $1 million.

Assuming similar figures, Ericsson might have pocketed $1 million from his second-place finish at the 2023 Indy 500.

Nonetheless, the Swedish racing driver is estimated to have a net worth of $4-$7 million.


After the 2022 Indy 500 win, he certainly acquired a lot of sponsorship deals. However, his primary sponsor so far has been Huski Chocolate since 2020.

“Thanks to Indy Car, people recognize Huski,” said Huski’s president and chief executive, Mika Manninen.

But, the Huski Chocolate will be replaced by Huski Ice Spritz.

Huski Enterprises had to call off their plans of introducing Huski Chocolate in the US following the Covid Pandemic. However, their new vodka drink is scheduled to hit the market in 15 states by September.

Huski Chocolate is reported to have spent around $10 million for a full-season deal in Indycar.
