Race to the Honda Indy Edmonton Winners

Entrants from across Canada shared their memorable Edmonton/Indy moment for the chance to win an ultimate Indy prize package featuring a hair-raising ride in an Indy Pace Car.

Our panel of local celebrity judges were tasked with selecting the 6 winners from 445 entries! The panel of judges included John Sexsmith (Sports Anchor/Reporter, Global Edmonton), Scott McKeen (Columnist, Edmonton Journal), Karen Unland (Website Editor, Edmonton Journal), and Ryan Jespersen (Co-Host, Breakfast Television). Our thanks to them – they had some tough decisions to make!
