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:
