On your marks. We are looking for the driver with the greatest nerve. The one with the boldest heart. For this next bracket, we are trying to determine the Most Daring Driver.
We have assembled sixteen of popular culture's best drivers from tv, movies, video games, and literature. They have been seeded by their year of inception. (In Anakin's case, it's when the character was reintroduced in TPM). Here are the match ups.
1 Batman (Detective Comics) vs 16 Ricky Bobby (Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby)
2 James Bond (Dr No) vs 15 Frank Martin (The Transporter)
3 Speed Racer (Speed Racer) vs 14 Dominic Toretto (The Fast and The Furious)
4 Dick Dastardly (Wacky Races) vs 13 Anakin Skywalker (Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace)
5 Frank Bullitt (Bullitt) vs 12 Ms Frizzle (The Magic Schoolbus)
6 Bandit (Smokey and the Bandit) vs 11 Captain Falcon (F-Zero)
7 Max Rockatansky (Mad Max) vs 10 Mario Mario (Super Mario Bros)
8 Bo Duke (The Dukes of Hazzard) vs 9 BA Barakus (The A-Team)
