Can't find weatherstripping that fits garage door bottom

My weather stripping came off, is broken, and the bottom of the garage door is slick with a single groove in the bottom. What type of weather stripping should I use? I've seen options online that fit into a track on the bottom, but nothing that I can tell fits on my door.

This looks like a typical groove for standard garage door bottom seal strip. Do you have a piece of the old strip available to show us?

edit: What is the door brand?

I know of two major groups of weather stripping. One has two slots along the length of the door and the other has one slot down the center. There are slight variations from one brand to another but I've always found that one of the two types fit.

I'm not sure what manufacturer

But the old weatherstripping fit around the bottom and not into a channel. The old track looked like this, but it kept falling off. Name:  wx.gif

Check along the top, bottom or sides for a manufacturers tag.
