The Most Daring Driver Elite Eight


There goes the first lap. We have a ton on eliminated drivers and some heavy favorites starting to emerge. Here are the winners of the first round of the Daring Driver bracket who will move on to the elite eight.

Batman (Detective Comics) vs 16 Ricky Bobby (Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby)
James Bond (Dr No) vs 15 Frank Martin (The Transporter)
Speed Racer (Speed Racer) vs 14 Dominic Toretto (The Fast and The Furious)
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)

Max Rockatansky (Mad Max) vs 10 Mario Mario (Super Mario Bros)
Bo Duke (The Dukes of Hazzard) vs 9 BA Barakus (The A-Team)

So there were a couple of upsets. Considering the seeding was based on character creation year, many of the veterans won their matches. Speed Racer, Batman, and James Bond came out of the gate strong. Dick Dastardly also had a huge win but looks like he'll face a much tougher challenger in round two. Here are those match ups.
