Bruno Massel’s Incredibly High Net Worth
Bruno began his career as a model after earning a BBA with honors from the University of Iowa. When a Chicago-area modeling agent discovered him and offered him a modeling job, Bruno decided to put his law career on wait.
Bruno then began dabbling with picture assignments and the family’s drag racing business. He competed in a number of tournaments, including the IRHA National Tour. Bruno shifted gears in 2001, when he decided to try his hand at television commentary for the IHRA racing series on SPEED and TNN.
His knowledge and experience in the motorsports sector, as well as his presence in front of the camera, have led to a full-time job as an on-camera host in the automotive industry, including various disciplines of racing and special events. On the Velocity network, he hosts Truck U and Garage Squad, and he also works as a reporter for ESPN’s coverage of NHRA Drag Racing. The 14th season of Truck U is now airing.
Bruno’s most recent endeavor was to create his own half-hour pilot, “Behind the Helmet,” which is currently being viewed by networks in preparation for distribution. He has won a total of 37 drag racing games and has amassed a sizable net worth as a result of his drag racing and broadcasting careers.
The Velocity has an estimated net worth of more than $6 million as of 2018.
