Hot Wheels Fantasy Pick'em - Season 2 Championship Bracket

We've reached the end of the regular season.  This championship bracket is the last chance to score points before we crown a team winner as well as a season champ for the cars. This bracket will feature all eight regular season 2 winners.  Be sure to join us for season 3.  It will be a bit different.  For season 3 we will be racing all 64 cars that competed in Seasons 1 and 2 in a 64 car single elimination bracket. It's going to be awesome! But first we need to complete Season 2.  Here is the line-up for races in the championship bracket for season 2 of the Hot Wheels Fantasy Pick'em game.

The Cars

Porsche Carrera GT

'77 Pontiac Firebird

'90 Acura NSX

Super Volt

'13 Ford Mustang GT

Custom '69 Volkswagen Squareback

Corvette Stingray

Aston Martin Vantage GT3

The Matchups

Porsche Carrera GT vs '77 Pontiac Firebird
'90 Acura NSX vs Super Volt

Make your picks

This week we will be using the Challonge website to make our picks.  You should be able to access it in the frame below, but if it is not working here is a link. Click on the green "Create a Prediction" button.  Under "Prediction Title" make sure you "title your prediction" the team name you have been using in previous weeks.

The Results

This weeks picks have been posted above.  If you've forgotten who you've picked, take a look above by clicking on your bracket prediction, then sit back, click play, and cheer on your cars!

Some good racing in this bracket with the Mustang coming out on top.  It's long wheel base helps this car be a great racer.  As has happened in several brackets before.  I'm not sure the Acura is the second fastest car.  The Mustang beat it by a bit further than it beat the Corvette, but the Corvette met the Mustang earlier on and was sent packing before the final.

The team results have been updated.  I tried to sort out teams by email if your bracket wasn't named the same as your team has been.  Hopefully I got it all right.  It seems like we were a little low on pickers this week.  Hopefully the Challonge Website wasn't too difficult to use or cause problems.
In the end we had a 3-way tie for first place!  Congratulations to  Fast Eddie, Rhino, and HWminion58  on a great season and a first place finish! FOTF, Russel Gross, Kay Jay Racing, 64s Racing, Busted Knuckles, NDR, and Tuhthebrave finished out the top 10.  Great job everyone!

Next season (which will start in a couple of weeks) is going to be fun.  We're going to take all the cars from Season 1 and Season 2, 64 cars in all, and race them in a huge single elimination bracket.  We'll do one round each week - so the first week there will be 32 races, the next week 16, then 8, then the final 4, then we'll do the semi-finals and finals the last week.  I haven't decided whether we'll make our picks for the whole tournament before it starts like a big March Madness style bracket, or whether we'll make our picks week by week depending on the results from the previous week. Any thoughts?
