Despite the terrible weather on Sunday (the day the Martinsville race was originally scheduled to run), there were enough fans who braved the bone-chilling temperatures and rain to fill the Gluckometer with noise ratings.
The stands may have only been half-full at the time, but the fans in attendance made their voices heard.
This week, the top two drivers remained the same – though they got dramatically different receptions.
