DETROIT – The winner of the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear was announced on Monday.

Alec Porter, 20, from Westland won the contest. There were five other finalists, all students from the College of Creative Studies.

This is the ninth annual poster contest. The judges loved the unique design of incorporating the iconic Joe Louis fist into the poster along with an IndyCar and a sports car.

The poster will be ready by the end of April and will be for sale online and at the races.
