What is the Best NASCAR Cup Series Track?

Well it is way past March Madness time of year, but that is when this idea originally came to me. Being the great procrastinator that I am, I finally got around to creating this little blog. Instead of a field of 64, I came up with a field of 16. it was the only way I could get the grid to work out correctly. Anyway, I listed all of the tracks, and ranked them from 1-8, so that I could have two divisions. I am going to set it up similar to the NFL playoffs, the highest seed will play the lowest seed in each round, so if a #8 upsets a #1 seed, then the #2 seed (if it wins) will face the #8 seed.

Vote for your favorite tracks, voting is open until Monday morning at 8 a.m. After that I will create a new blog with the results, and we will start another week of voting. If there is a tie in the number of votes, I will cast my vote to decide who moves on, otherwise, I won't be voting in the contest.

Here is the seeding I came up with

1. Bristol
