Everybody knows that Dale Earnhardt, Jr. is the most popular driver in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. Even with his woe is me attitude. But the real question is who is the fans next favorite driver, when they aren't busy following the herd.
Main stream media would have you think it is Smoke or Rowdy Busch. Darrell Waltrip would try to lead you into rooting for Kevin Harvick after "June Bug."
Back in the day it was Awesome Bill from Dawsonville and the Intimidator.
Yahoo! Sports has created a great barometer that lets you see which drivers are in a fans top two.
In their fantasy auto racing, Yahoo! allows participants to join two "fans of" groups. They have 30 of the most relevant current and former drivers to choose from.
It is no shock that every year Dale Earnhardt, Jr. wins that popularity contest. But what might come as a surprise to many is who comes in second.
