Kyle Busch Tops New Hampshire Noise Ratings; Tony Stewart Challenges For Top Spot

The reception for Kyle Busch is always loud, but it was particularly noisy at New Hampshire’s pre-race driver introductions on Sunday.

Busch heard an avalanche of boos, which earned him the top spot in this week’s Gluckometer ratings. Of course, the New Hampshire fans had just seen Busch win his 100th NASCAR victory the day prior to the Cup race, which may have contributed to the extra boost of boos.

Tony Stewart was the only driver to challenge Busch for the top spot this week. The fans had plenty of love as the public address announcer introduced an all-Stewart-Haas Racing front row for the first time in history.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. was third, followed by Connecticut native Joey Logano.
