This is the seventh consecutive year the Detroit Grand Prix has worked with the Detroit-based CCS to create the official posted for the IndyCar and IMSA race weekend. This was also the second year that a fan vote was taken into consideration when selecting a winner.
“I don’t know how to put into words what winning this competition means,” said Fedak.
“The beauty of what these students at CCS create every year in this competition is amazing,” added Detroit Grand Prix chairman Bud Denker. “We had five great designs we saw today and it was hard to choose one of them, but Ally is our winner and she is going to be a great ambassador with her excitement and enthusiasm. She brings that with her poster design as well, which is all about celebration and the spirit of the Grand Prix.”
The Detroit Grand Prix says this annual competition gives CCS students “a chance to create a unique piece of art while keeping alive the Grand Prix tradition of commemorative posters dating back to the very first Detroit Grand Prix in 1982.”
You can catch on-track action from both IMSA and IndyCar in Detroit when the Grand Prix kicks off on May 31st.
