On Pit Row's Greatest Driver Tourney

Greetings to all, blogging will continue to be light until I see some racing worth talking about.

If you haven't been to On Pit Row lately, I highly recommend you do so to participate in a little driver vs. driver tournament.  We're in the second round to narrow down the field to the Sweet 16 and there have been some killer matchups with more to come.  Who's the best of the best?  That's for the NASCAR blogosphere to figure out.  Go here and vote.  It's your duty as a race fan.

This, in theory, is a great concept. But I don't think there was any seeding taken into consideration. How can you have Rusty Wallace going against Richard Petty or Tony Stewart going against Bobby Allison in the first round when all four of these guys are arguably in the top 20 of all-time drivers?

I think that's a valid complaint, but when it comes down to it, I think the top 8 and top 4 and the championship rounds will shake out the way they would if the drivers were seeded. Question is, how would you seed them? By championships? By number of wins? Inevitably someone would think that's unfair.

Hollis, Matt - We talked about seeding and two things came up. One was the difficulty that you mention, Matt, in how you would do it - and who. We didn't have a committee and I didn't want too much bias to enter into the process. Two, seeding would have made the outcome too predictable, imho. So we went for random, which I think, created some interesting early match ups. It was tough luck for Rusty, for sure, but it wouldn't have been any better with Geoff Bodine against the King, would it? Besides, I wanted some talking points, and we got one. Thanks for the post Matt. And for the comment Hollis.
