NEW YORK (CBS SPORTS) – Danica Patrick and Dale Earnhardt Jr. fans will square off in the next round of the “Drive for the Cover” competition for the fall’s new NASCAR video game.

Patrick versus Earnhardt is just one of the match-ups coming up as the release of “NASCAR The Game: Inside Line” draws near.

Tony Stewart fans defeated Carl Edwards supporters in a recent head to head battle.

In a memorable Round 1, Greg Biffle upset fan-favorite Jimmie Johnson and Marcos Ambrose led all drivers in total votes, but neither driver was able to keep the momentum in Round 2 of the the “Drive for the Cover” Facebook campaign. Biffle fell to veteran Mark Martin and Ambrose couldn’t slow Denny Hamlin’s late surge Sunday evening.

Round 2 saw several very close matchups, leading to head-to-head matchups with NASCAR’s biggest stars in Round 3.

After edging Kyle Busch by less than 1,000 votes, Patrick will face her JR Motorsports boss, Earnhardt Jr., in what is expected to be one of the closest matchups of the tournament.
