"Winning It All"

"Winning It All"

Lot # 4 (Sale Order: 4 of 484)

Original Artwork by Sam Bass, Kyle Petty Mello Yello at Charlotte, artist worked in pieces - vehicle lifting slightly, artist signature likely obscured by matting, Unknown Year, NASCAR experienced a big surge in corporate interest and sponsorship in the mid-90's to early 2000's, and Mello Yello jumped in with both feet. In addition to a strong on-track presence, Mello Yello was featured in the 1990 NASCAR-based movie Days of Thunder, in which Tom Cruise's character, Cole Trickle, drove a Mello Yello-sponsored car to victory in the Daytona 500, although the product name itself is never verbally mentioned in the movie. That livery went on to become a real NASCAR paint scheme the following year, when driver Kyle Petty drove with Mello Yello sponsorship in the Winston Cup Series. He ran four seasons (1991 to 1994) with the sponsor before switching over to Coors Light in 1995. Mello Yello was seen as a sponsor on die-cast toy and collectible cars for both the Days of Thunder #51 Chevrolet Lumina and Kyle Petty's #42 Pontiac Grand Prix. Mello Yello also sponsored the fall Winston Cup race at Charlotte Motor Speedway through 1994. In frame, plexiglass in frame is bowed. 34.5 x 25. Was reproduced. Retail $10,000
