Who Is NASCAR's Least Popular Driver? Vote Now!

We all know about that lame contest NASCAR puts on every year. You know, the one that always gives Dale Earnhardt Jr. that annual award because he can’t seem to win a race.

Well I’ve decided to create my own contest, and I need your help. Together, we’re going to decide who NASCAR’s Least Popular Driver is!

It’s simple, just vote for your least favorite NASCAR driver(or drivers) by using the poll below, or on the right hand of your screen. You can vote for multiple drivers, and you can vote multiple times. Voting concludes following the announcement of NASCAR’s Most Popular Driver.

The winner of the Least Popular Driver award gets an imaginary trophy, a special mention on this semi-popular NASCAR blog, a pat on the back for a job-well-done, and the right to declare himself the Least Popular Driver in NASCAR during the entire 2011 season!

Sound like fun? What are you waiting for? Start voting! And spread the word to your friends about Stock Car Spin’s Least Popular Driver contest!

    Most popular isn’t lame in the fact that the drivers who aren’t picked, aren’t alone. The least popular however, leaves a driver all alone in something that isn’t flattering at all. To me, your contest is lame and I won’t be voting on something that could really hurt a driver’s feelings really bad. I think it’s poor taste and so unfair. We need all our drivers out there or there isn’t racing.

    • Ben Montedonico

      You’re right. An unofficial contest on a semi-popular NASCAR blog could really devestate a driver. What, with all the money they make and all the pride they have in doing something we all could only dream of doing. I especially hope Kyle Busch doesn’t win the contest, as it looks like he might, because I know just how much he hates being booed at a race track. This would probably push him to the breaking point.

    • Sandy Lawrence

      Laura. You must be a johnson fan.

      • Laura

        I’m a Kyle Busch fan. However, I’m not concerned about Kyle because he doesn’t seem to care if fans don’t like him. Besides, he wouldn’t win it anyway, his fan base is constantly growing. It’s the drivers that mostly run in the back and rarely or never win, that I was concerned about.

        • Michael

          Most people think Kyle bush is the most unpolular because he is suck a baby!!

          • Laura

            The reasons he is so unpopular is because of his talent and his refusing to suck up to the fans that bash and boo him. Those are the real reasons. Kyle is good and some fans just can’t stand that.

    This contest or the idea is funny. I had thought about it before.

    I figure that there is really only 2 choices overall. Kyle Busch or Dale Earnhardt Jr.

    While most popular says Dale Jr has the most fans or at-least the most fans who will vote regularly this contest could also be won by him by having the most fans who dislike him.

    Now if Dale Jr was the most popular and the least popular (which would be possible) it would really send some mixed signal about how split the “NASCAR Nation” is.

  • Angie

    No need for a contest. Just listen to the boos when Kyle Busch is introduced.

    • http://outlook jokerpug

      everybody loves to hate klye thats why he is so popular he’s not like that loser Dale jr who can’t even talk to anyone all he ever does is mumble and I think Dale jr. is gay you never ever see him with a girl

      • Frogg

        I have been saying that Jr. is GAY for years now. I think girls like him just like they like their gay friend that goes shoe shopping with them.

  • Sandy

    Or Jimmie.

  • Rick Z

    Ryan, Dale Jr is the most popular driver hands down. The only people that don’t like him are the ones that don’t understand his popularity and why he is the highest paid driver. Most of these people only route for someone that has poor character like Kyle Bush. They are bandwagon jumpers who will literally go to whatever driver is winning that season.

    • Sandy

      Oh I think I know why Jr. is the “most popular”. All the fans that like him because of his father get on and vote 50 times a day. If his father hadn’t died he would not be near as popular. After all his father being a dirty driver didn’t win the most popular until he died. I feel bad that he died, but you don’t try to change the image from what he was to an angel.

  • http://www.tireball.com John


    there are people who like 48 or 24 and hate 88. or vice versa so you can’t even say those comments with substance. Dale Jr is either liked or disliked, there is no in between really. He’s not a Tony Raines type of driver

  • Sandy

    Please don’t put Jeff Gordon by Jimmie Johnson. I really
    think Johnson is the most unpopular. At least Kyle gets boos. Johnson gets NOTHING at the track. People don’t like him because he is not genuine at all.

  • Dale Jr

    Maybe if Kyle’s daddy would die, he could become most popular driver like me.

    its least popular not most hated !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
