Brian Lauer wins week 6!


Brian Lauer of Findlay, Ohio has been picked as the Week 6 winner of Michigan International Speedway President Roger’s Curtis’ fantasy pick ‘em contest.

Lauer correctly selected Denny Hamlin as the winner of the race at Martinsville and will receive an MIS color changing cup and can koozie.

Among the 331 fans that signed up for the contest last week, Lauer was one of 24 that selected Hamlin as the winner. All 24 fans will be automatically entered for the grand prize drawing at the end of the season for two Victory Lane Club passes for the 2011 season, a $1,200 value.

Curtis picked Jeff Gordon, who finished 3rd in the race.

Overall, week 6 of the contest saw Jimmie Johnson as the most popular pick of the weekend with 72 selections. Jeff Gordon was the second-most picked driver with 58.

“Congratulations to the 24 fans, including our weekly winner Brian Lauer, for correctly picking Denny Hamlin,” Curtis said. “I thought I had this pick right this week with Jeff Gordon leading on the final double-file restart, but he got into Matt Kenseth at the end and Hamlin pushed through to get the lead! It was an exciting finish and I almost had it picked correctly! Now, we take another week off for Easter before heading to Phoenix.”
