insulating around garage door

We have two 8 ft overhead doors on our 1959 ranch. Garage is cinderblock. The tracks for the garage doors are set about 2 inches in from the cinderblock opening. As a result, when the doors are closed you can look around the side of the track and see daylight. This lets in lots of cold air in the winter, not to mention Minnie and Mickey and all of their friends. Is there a good way to seal this space? Would Fiberglass batting do or should it be a rigid insulation? The rest of the garage is insulated and there is living space directly above it.
