Dale Jr. most popular NASCAR driver for 11th year in a row


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.

So how popular is he? Earnhardt collected 700,000 of the 1-million votes.
