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

I would've liked to have seen Martinsville paired with another track besides Bristol, but I understand that's how the seedings work. I've been going to Martinsville for the Spring race the last three years and have seen some great races there. Still haven't been to anything that tops racing under the lights at Bristol though. Haven't been there since Junior won in 2004, but I've had the itch to get back every year since, just haven't been able to afford it yet.

Great blog Section!!!
