Fontana: Local Boy Jimmie Johnson Gets The Most Noise

Southern California native Jimmie Johnson got more cheers than usual at the closest track to his hometown of El Cajon, but he also got a ton of boos as well.

That added up to the most noise of any driver and the only one to top 90 decibels on our noisemeter. Even Kyle Busch, who was roundly jeered, couldn't manage that much noise.

Fan favorite Dale Earnhardt Jr. had plenty of cheers, but the crowd wasn't as vocal for him as they were for the top two.

Here are the full results from Fontana:

Driver    dB Type of Noise Comment/Explanation
1 Jimmie Johnson 91.4 Mixed Hometown track
2 Kyle Busch 89.6 Boos No love despite being in West
3 Dale Earnhardt Jr. 87.5 Cheers Has slipped a bit in cheer volume
T4 Mark Martin 86.9 Cheers Remains sentimental favorite
T4 Carl Edwards 86.9 Mixed Fans still wary of Carl
6 Tony Stewart 86.8 Cheers Popular at most every track
7 Kasey Kahne 86.7 Cheers Popular driver
8 Ryan Newman 84.9 Cheers More noise than usual for Rocket Man
9 Juan Montoya 84.7 Boos Fans refuse to embrace JPM
10 Jamie McMurray 84.6 Cheers Pole-sitter
