It's Talladega. It's Dale Earnhardt Jr. Of course NASCAR's most popular driver was on top of the crowd noise rankings yet again at the Alabama superspeedway where his family has seen so much success.
But according to our decibel meter, Kyle Busch gave Earnhardt Jr. a challenge. The boos for Busch nearly earned him the top spot in overal noise, but he came up just short.
