Erin Crocker: More Popular than Barack Obama, Michael Jackson, and Ted Kennedy


Guess which athlete is more popular than the President of the United States, a late Pop King, and a famous senator who is being laid to rest on this day. C’mon, guess.

I’ll give you a hint. It’s a NASCAR driver. No, it’s not Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Unless you read the title of this article, you probably guessed wrong. But according to today’s Top 10 searches on Yahoo.com(and it will probably change by this afternoon), Erin Crocker is numero uno on the charts.

That’s twice this week Crocker has been number one at something, a career best.

Earlier this week, she was officially announced as former NASCAR crew chief and team owner Ray Evernham’s number one, as the two got married at a Las Vegas hotel on Wednesday night. I will add that immediate family and friends from both sides were present.

And now, Crocker is the number one most popular search on Yahoo today. The late Michael Jackson is 3rd(this as of 1:00 P.M. EDT), and Senator Ted Kennedy, who is being laid to rest today, is 6th. President Barack Obama is not in the Top 10. Your full list is below. Again, this is as of 1:00 P.M. EDT:

But for one day, if only for one day, Erin Crocker is more popular than Michael Jackson, Barack Obama, Ted Kennedy, and yes Junior Nation, even Dale Earnhardt Jr.

    Boy, that Jeremy Mayfield was totally off-base when he said that Ray was more interested in Erin than the success of his top NASCAR teams. A big joke! Anyway, Kasey has done better with RPM and another owner in title only. And NASCAR has accomplished its goal by marginalizing Jeremy by its court manipulations! Another outspoken American has been “educated” as to dollars buying justice.
