The Hitman 500: Winners

Joey Logano's outstanding Hitman-themed racing suit at last week's NASCAR race was the inspiration for the latest round of wackiness in the Kotaku 'Shop Contest. We got a real good contest that runs real good with a super crew and just want to thank everyone on the Gawker Media llc Kotaku #99 web site today, and especially our overall points leader, xX_cringer8_Xx!

Leading off, BigMikeMcCarthy (3) is the Crew Chief of all Cosmos. Anderster (1) files an objection with the track officials. If I meet Reggie Fils-Aime (in blueTunic's shop, (4) at E3, I'm going to induct him into the 'Shop Contest Hall of Fame. You can always count on a Reggie 'shop to save the day.

I think Pan_1da7 (13, who I always mentally pronounce as "Panida Seven") designed a Ken-from-Street-Fighter firesuit. Not sure exactly, but it makes the cut easily. mrjoeyyaya (11) just up and got ridiculous on us

CYBERLEADER (6) may have given us a quick-and-dirty 'Shop but he gets in because ... Fanta? On Batman's belt buckle? WTF? Evil Sheepy (7) struggled like hell with image upload but eventually got this in and makes the final cut. Smart use of the headset.

VanguardRose's Samus suit (19) is very smartly done. toolsoldier (17) called back to the Minecraft wedding. Stuart.C (15) appealed to us with eye candy; I'm sure GoDaddy would enlist Cammy if she existed in real life.

Overall finalists, hampstasandwich (8) a long-time all-star here, turned in an unbelievable Vault 101 firesuit. Perfect colors, sponsors, motifs, everything. But alas, it is not the overall No. 1. We saved the best for last, xX_cringer8_Xx (20), with a Kirby-themed car and suit that led this race wire-to-wire. The joke and the execution are about as perfect as anything I've seen here.

Congrats to xX_cringer8_Xx, thanks to all who entered, and we will have another contest ready for you tomorrow morning!
