Currently, Matt Hagan‘s net worth is $1.9 million. He has three Funny Car titles, is an avid hunter and hemp farmer.
Hemp farming is a hobby for Hagan
NHRA funny car driver Matt Hagan is making his mark on the local scene. Aside from winning the Daytona 500, Hagan has also won more races for his team owner Don Schumacher than most of us have been lucky enough to claim. This weekend, Hagan is slated to win his second race of the season at the Heartland Nationals in Topeka, Kansas.
Aside from being a NHRA driver, Hagan is also a hands-on farmer. The 36-year-old grazes 700 brood cows over 2,100 acres in three southwest Virginia counties. He uses 1.2 million gallons of water per week and makes the wise decision to use drip irrigation.
Hagan has a new found obsession with hemp farming. He recently acquired a 100 acre farm in Floyd County. He plans on making his company the largest hemp grower in Virginia. He has also invested in state-of-the-art equipment. The most exciting part is that Hagan is not alone in his hemp-growing endeavors.
He also owns a 2,000 acre cattle farm in Montgomery County, Virginia, which he uses as a mid-week respite from the racing business. In fact, he’s probably won more races there than he has in the Daytona 500. He also takes frequent trips out of state to enjoy the outdoors.
The biggest challenge for Hagan is finding a processor to take his farm’s crop to the next level. He intends to sell hemp-infused CBD oil in a few years time.
He is an avid hunter
NHRA driver Matt Hagan is an avid outdoorsman and has a knack for the triathlon. He is also a hands-on farmer, raising 600 “momma” cows and cultivating hemp in the process. He also enjoys the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series. Having spent half his life racing cars, Hagan is no stranger to the grueling grind. He is also a proud member of the Chandler Chamber of Commerce and has a hefty list of sponsors. He is also one of the most sought after drivers in the state.
Hagan has won a handful of awards including the aforementioned NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series title. He has also made a splash in the Pro Mod scene. He has even won the Rookie of the Year award in 2006. He is also the owner of the biggest trophy in the state, a 3,400 acre cattle farm. He also has four children with wife Rachel. One of Hagan’s greatest achievements is that he was the first driver to break the barrier with a blistering 1,000 foot straight in under four seconds. He has also been a hands-on driver since his earliest days. He is also one of the most humble people in the sport. In short, Hagan is one of the cool kids. He even has his own NHRA show, The Matt Hagan Racing Club.
He has three Funny Car titles
During his career, Matt Hagan has won three Funny Car world championships, a title that ranks fourth among all NHRA Funny Car drivers. He has also finished in the top three in the standings in three of the last four years.

He has also competed in Pro Mod and circle track stock car racing. He joined Don Schumacher Racing in 2009 as a rookie. He has also been nominated for the Auto Club Road to the Future award.
