Joe Laws of Ludlow, Ky. has been picked as the Week 9 winner of Michigan International Speedway President Roger’s Curtis’ fantasy pick ‘em contest.
Laws was one of four fans who correctly selected Kevin Harvick as the winner of the race at Talladega and will receive a Dale Earnhardt Jr. T-shirt and MIS hand sanitizer pen.
All four 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 Earnhardt Jr., who finished 13th in the race.
Overall, week 9 of the contest saw Earnhardt Jr. as the most popular pick of the weekend with 62 selections. Jeff Gordon was the second-most picked driver with 30.
“Congratulations to Joe Laws and the three others who picked Kevin Harvick to win at Talladega,” Curtis said. “It was a great, competitive race to watch and we all got to see an amazing finish with Harvick edging out Jamie McMurray for the win. Fans got to see a thrilling day of racing!”
