Richard Rawlings Net Worth $20 Million

Born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas the boy was into racing and constructing cars. His dad was a big influence on this hobby, which later evolved into a successful career. Being only 14 years old, he bought his first car which was a Mercury Comet 1974. Later on, he was buying and selling cars, which was a rather profitable business for a youngster. After graduation from high school, Richard continued his car business as well as starting to construct cars. However, to support himself he had to do various other jobs, like police officer, firefighter, paramedic and others. Later, he founded the advertising and printing company called Lincoln Press, which increased his wealth, and gave him the possibility to continue his car builder career.

Rawlings subsequently sold his printing/advertising company in order to launch Gas Monkey Garage. The above mentioned company creates cars for clients all over the world, with these unique cars transported to the customers, as well. The reality show “Fast N’ Loud” (2012 – present) is focused on the work in this garage, with the main stars of the show being Richard Rawlings and Aaron Kaufman. They are looking for broken down, shabby cars to buy, restore and sell. The show was triumphant from the first season, and currently the fifth season is being broadcast. “Fast N’ Loud” (2012 – present) has high ratings, and as a result of this, the spin-off show entitled “Misfit Garage” (2014 – present) was started a year ago.

In 2013, Gas Monkey Bar N’ Grill was opened. It is a live music bar and restaurant located on Technology Boulevard East, Dallas, Texas, USA. This bar and restaurant has also added much to the overall amount of Richard Rawlings net worth. A year later Gas Monkey Live was launched, too.

Additionally, Richard is a racer in transcontinental road rallies, and is the winner of the Bullrun and Gumball 3000. Rawlings set the record in the Cannonball Run in 1979 and up to date nobody is able to break it: he managed to drive from New York to Los Angeles (2,811 miles) at an average speed of 87.6 miles per hour – it took him 31 hours and 59 minutes.

In his personal life, Richard Rawlings states that he is single. Not much information about his private life is revealed.

    I wish Richard nothing but the best. Just being a former fireman says a lot about the type of person he really is. He put in the endless work and time required to make it this far. People who become wealthy always seem to have the energy and drive to put in 12- 14 hour days 6 and 7 days a week. I wish him luck with the bar and grill. I have heard the restaurant business is one of the riskiest ventures you can invest in.
