Gluckometer, Dover: Busch Booed, Then Wins

As Kyle Busch has said in paraphrasing the late Dale Earnhardt, it doesn't matter if he gets booed. He just wants the most noise.

He got both at Dover, topping the Gluckometer ratings for the second time this season (he earlier got the most noise in his hometown of Las Vegas).

Surprisingly – perhaps because Philadelphia-area fans are so used to booing loudly – three of the top four drivers in the noise ratings had boos. Often, the most-cheered drivers have the most noise.

The full ratings (ranked by decibels) below:

 

Driver      dB Type of Noise Comment/Explanation
1 Kyle Busch 85.5 Boos Heard cheers when he won
2 Jimmie Johnson 85.3 Boos Heard cheers for speeding penalty
3 Dale Earnhardt Jr. 84.5 Cheers Wasn't much else to cheer about
4 Jeff Gordon 83.9 Boos No love from the First State
5 Mark Martin 81.3 Cheers Popular driver
6 Tony Stewart 81.2 Cheers Popular driver
7 Juan Pablo Montoya 80.8 Boos Says he doesn't know why fans boo
8 Carl Edwards 79.2 Cheers Fans wanted 'Concrete Carl' victory
9 Martin Truex Jr. 79.1 Cheers Home track favorite
10 Kasey Kahne 78.8 Cheers L.L. Cool K
