Gluckometer: Daytona 500

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

  1. Mark Martin*                    92.1                    Cheers
  2. Dale Earnhardt Jr.          89.0                    Cheers
  3. Tony Stewart                   86.1                     Mixed
  4. Jimmie Johnson             85.7                     Mixed
  5. Kyle Busch                      84.6                     Boos
  6. PA Announcer**             82.1                     Crowd roar
  7. Jeff Gordon                     81.8                      Mixed
  8. Kasey Kahne                 80.4                      Cheers
  9. Juan Pablo Montoya    78.7                      Boos
  10. 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.
