Gluckometer, New Hampshire: Dale Jr. Gets Knocked From No. 1, Logano Gets Warm Reception

For the first time since Dover, Dale Earnhardt Jr. was not at the top of the prerace driver introduction noise rankings.

At New Hampshire, the decibel meter used to calculate the Gluckometer measured Jeff Gordon with a larger crowd reaction than Earnhardt Jr. – although not by much. It was likely a product of fans reacting to Gordon's aggressive driving at Sonoma.

Though Earnhardt Jr. was second, the other highly notable crowd reaction was for Joey Logano. The crowd showered the driver from nearby Connecticut with cheers, and he received the most noise yet in his young career.

Here are the complete rankings:

Driver     dB Type of Noise Comment/Explanation
1 Jeff Gordon 87.6 Mix Likely Sonoma-related
2 Dale Earnhardt Jr. 87.4 Cheers Most popular driver
3 Joey Logano 87.3 Cheers Home track
4 Tony Stewart 86.9 Mostly cheers Popular driver
5 Mark Martin 86.4 Cheers Most recent NH winner
6 Kyle Busch 86.3 Boos Nationwide winner
7 Jimmie Johnson 86.1 Boos JJ fatigue
