Jim Steinbacher wins Week 7!


Jim Steinbacher of Churubusco, Ind. has been picked as the Week 7 winner of Michigan International Speedway President Roger’s Curtis’ fantasy pick ‘em contest.

Steinbacher correctly selected Ryan Newman as the winner of the race at Phoenix and will receive an MIS calendar and playing cards.

Among the 373 fans that signed up for the contest over the last two weeks, Steinbacher was one of four that selected Newman as the winner. The 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 Kurt Busch, who finished 35th in the race.

Overall, week 7 of the contest saw Jimmie Johnson as the most popular pick of the weekend with 67 selections. Jeff Gordon was the second-most picked driver with 54.

“Congratulations to the four fans, including our weekly winner Jim Steinbacher, for correctly picking Ryan Newman,” Curtis said. “The two-tire stop at the end was a good call for Newman. It’s great to see him back in Gatorade Victory Lane since his last visit during the 2008 Daytona 500. I thought Kurt Busch was a strong pick for this race but he suffered some damage early and was never a factor. That’s how racing goes sometimes. He was in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

MIS is hosting its weekly NASCAR pick ‘em contest at MISpeedway.com/rogerpickem. Fans have the chance to make a weekly selection on who they think will win that weekend’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race. Curtis also makes his selection on the website and discussed why he selected his driver on a weekly podcast.

All picks for the contest must be entered one hour prior to the start of each race. The contest is open to residents of the United States and Canada. Fans may also make their selection each week by mailing a 3 x 5 card with their pick and race name to Michigan International Speedway, 12626 U.S. 12, Brooklyn, MI 49230. All cards must be postmarked prior to the event date.
