1972 A.J. Foyt Miller High Life 500 NASCAR Original Ron Burton Artwork
This original Ron Burton artwork was commissioned by the Miller Brewing Company and used in an advertising campaign for their Miller High Life beers. Copies of the work were produced in poster format with Miller branding and mounted into faux wood plastic frames and sent out to bars, clubs, and stores countrywide. These framed posters are now highly collectible and bring a respectable price.
This is a one and only chance to own the original advertising artwork for these posters. It depicts A.J. Foyt’s victory at the 1972 Miller High Life 500 NASCAR Winston Cup Series race which took place at the Ontario Motor Speedway in Ontario, California. The brightly colored image has Foyt’s #21 Wood Brothers Racing Mercury passing Richard Petty’s #43 Plymouth while he was stopped making a pit stop.
The medium Ron used for the work was chalk crayon on velvet surfaced art paper and has been overlaid with the Miller High Life lettering. Its approximate size is 26 inches x 20 inches.
The artwork comes with a Certificate Of Authenticity.
