And the most popular driver in NASCAR is….
Dale Earnhardt Jr.
Earnhardt Jr. won the honor for the 11th year in a row. He should easily win it again next year as well.
With the selection of Earnhardt Jr. as the most popular driver this season he breaks a tie with Bill Elliott for most consecutive seasons as the Most Popular Driver. Elliott won the award a record 16 times, a number Earnhardt will have no problem breaking if he races long enough.
This year’s top 10 drivers, in order of votes received, were: Earnhardt Jr., Kasey Kahne, Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, Danica Patrick, Jimmie Johnson, Kevin Harvick, Matt Kenseth, Kyle Busch and Carl Edwards.
