1971 Richard Petty Third Daytona 500 Win Original Ron Burton Artwork
This Ron Burton original composition shows the final stages of the 1971 Daytona 500 race. It shows 80,000 spectators watching eventual race winner Richard Petty in his #43 Plymouth out in front, while Buddy Baker #11 and A.J Foyt #21 tussle it out for second place. They’re followed by Bobby Isaac, Pete Hamilton, Fred Lorenzen, and David Pearson respectively. The work was done by Ron in recognition of Richard Petty being the first driver to win the Daytona 500 three times (he would go on to win it four more times). This oil on stretched canvas has vivid colors and illustrates the speed of the cars on that day. This unique piece is considered to be one of Ron’s finest NASCAR works.
The approximate size of the work is 30 x 20 inches.
This painting comes from the famous Ron Burton Collection, many of which were/are displayed around many famous Indianapolis establishments including the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Many team owners and drivers have acquired Ron’s work over the years.
