Ok, I'm a day late with this. When I set the original deadline for 8 a.m. yesterday, I forgot I was going to Sesame Place with the family. Nobody voted after that time so it doesn't matter. Here are the results from the first round. No upsets in the first round, and not surprisingly, the #1 seeds shutout their opponents. Indy vs Infineon was the closest, personally I like Infineon better, but I'm not surprised that Indy wone.

Non-Geographically Associated Group 1

#1 Bristol (20) vs. #8 Phoenix (0)
#2 Talladega (19) vs #7 Auto Club Speedway (1)
#3 Indianapolis (11) vs. #6 Infineon Raceway (9)
#4 Martinsville (15) vs #5 Las Vegas Motor Speedway (5)

Non-Geographically Associated Group 2

#1 Daytona  (20) vs. #8 Kansas Speedway (0)
#2 Atlanta (16) vs #7 Homestead-Miami Speedway (4)
#3  Richmond (14) vs. #6 Dover (6)
#4  Darlington (12) vs #5 Lowe's (8)

So now we go onto Round 2. I think the matchups in this round will be a little harder to choose. Once again I won't vote, that way if there is a tie, I will cast a vote to break the tie. Polls close at 8 a.m. next Monday,.

Non-Geographically Associated Group 1

#1 Bristol  vs.#4 Martinsville
#2 Talladega  vs #3 Indianapolis

Non-Geographically Associated Group 2

Bristol over Martinsville but I like both tracks and this was the hardest choice for me.

Talladega over Indianapolis. This was the easiest choice because I hate the Aero issues at every Indy. I also hate the camera angles and how the don't give a good long view of the cars.

Daytona over The Lady in black. This was another hard choice for me because I love the history at Darlington. NOBODY gets a vote over Daytona in IMO.

Atlanta over Richmond because Atlanta is a super speedway without the restrictor plates. Anytime you can watch that kind of speed without NASCAR holding it back is great!!

I have to go with what Frady said exactly, although Martinsville seems like a lost hope and Daytona is going down the tubes, Talladega vs. Indy seems like the big competition.

I went with the top seeds in group 1 and the upsets in gruop 2. The group 2 match-ups were tough for me...bluejay

That Daytona-Darlington matchup is a killer. Wish I could vote for both. Only matchup that may be tougher is if Bristol and Talladega both win.
