Larry The Cable Guy Cheered Loudly At Coca-Cola 600; Was It Enough To Beat Kyle Busch, Dale Earnhardt Jr.?

As you know, many of the celebrities who attend NASCAR events aren't actually NASCAR fans. Nor do some of them know a thing about racing.

Accordingly, when those celebs are introduced to the crowd, the fans often don't give much of a reaction.

Larry the Cable Guy, naturally, is different. NASCAR fans see him as one of their own, so when the Cars 2 co-star was introduced as an honorary pace car driver prior to the Coca-Cola 600, he earned a massive cheer.

Was it enough to win this week's Gluckometer ratings? Close, but Larry wasn't quite able to git 'er done.

Kyle Busch, in the aftermath of his speeding ticket, was greeted with a 98.3-decibel roar of negativity from the fans of Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. was next at 96.6, followed by Mater himself.

Here are the top 10 drivers in the Gluckometer noise ratings this week:
