Here they are: The Gluckometer Ratings for the Daytona 500.
As a reminder, I used to estimate these based on my ears and using a scale between 1-10. Now I have a decibel meter to help me accurately measure the crowd noise during driver introductions each week.
Driver Noise in dB Type of noise
- Mark Martin* 92.1 Cheers
- Dale Earnhardt Jr. 89.0 Cheers
Tony Stewart 86.1 Mixed
Jimmie Johnson 85.7 Mixed
- Kyle Busch 84.6 Boos
- PA Announcer** 82.1 Crowd roar
- Jeff Gordon 81.8 Mixed
- Kasey Kahne 80.4 Cheers
- Juan Pablo Montoya 78.7 Boos
- Kurt Busch 78.3 Boos
* – Most crowd noise recorded (in two-race history of using decibel meter)
** – PA Announcer said, "ARE YOU READY TO MEET THE TOP 10 DRIVERS?" Crowd roared.
