Dale Earnhardt Jr. Gets Most Noise At Darlington; Will Kyle Busch Claim Dover?

Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s recent run atop the Gluckometer may come to an end this weekend at Dover.

With Kyle Busch having stayed out of controversy for most of the season, his noise level hasn't quite been enough to challenge Earnhardt Jr. for the top spot. But after the post-race incident with Kevin Harvick at Darlington, Busch may hear the most noise at Dover.

At Darlington, though, it was all Earnhardt Jr.

Here are the Gluckometer ratings (measured with a handheld decibel meter) from pre-race driver introductions at the track "Too Tough To Tame."
