Axman Has Second Career That Brings Him Much Money Than Racing?!

Updated: Sep 28, 2023

The hit Discovery show gives racing fanatics an insight into the world of street racing as viewers watch the cast compete to take the number one spot. Although we see a lot of the cast on the show, there’s still some information they keep to themselves. So, without further ado, let’s get to know Axman a little better, including both his jobs and his early life.



Axman’s racing career

Larry Roach, aka Axman, has always had a passion for all things cars. Before his racing career, Larry loved spending time working on and building vehicles. He fell in love with racing at a young age when he would watch his older cousins take part in the sport. At age 10, the Discovery channel star began working in one of their garages and spent his teenage years working on cars.


“Growing up where I grew up, living on a mile dirt road, we were poor, looking back," he recalled back in 2021. When you grow up as a kid you don’t realize you’re poor, and that you don’t have the money. I mean, we ended up playing barefooted; we didn’t have a clue! We were living it up! We had family, that’s all we had. So we lived it up! I was watching my cousins race, and just wanting to beat them, drove me to work harder, to figure out how to get money to compete with them.”


He continued, “By the time I was 15 years old, I was working on their cars, in their garage. I would go to [their] garage, just trying to figure out how to make cars faster. I would pull engines down, rebuild them, try different things, call people, and try to learn everything I could about engines. And that’s where the bug really started.”


Larry showed up to the first season of Street Outlaws: No Prep Kings at GALOT Motorsports Park in Benson, North Carolina, with hopes of out-running the racers he’d been watching on his television. After his race in his 1964 Chevy II, he earned the points necessary to secure himself a place in the drivers of Street Outlaws: No Prep Kings season 2.



Axman has a logging business

If you’ve ever wondered where the name ‘Axman’ comes from – let’s get you up to speed.


Alongside his racing career, Axman owns his own logging business – Axman Enterprises. In fact, he has a YouTube channel – Axman & Axlady – on which he gives viewers an insight into that side of his life. On the channel he posts day in the life of a logger videos as well as the latest jobs they’ve been working on. In one of his videos, Larry told fans that although he dedicates ten hours a week to racing, logging gets 60 to 70 hours.


So, what is Axman's total net worth?

According to multiple reports, Larry "Axman" Roach has a net worth of roughly $500,000 – with some outlets suggesting he could potentially be worth up to $1 million. With Street Outlaws allegedly paying about $20-30k per episode and the average logger salary boasting up to $50k per year, it makes sense Axman's lucrative incomes add up to a hefty chunk of change.
