"Firecracker Finish"

In another Garry Hill print, he captures Richard Petty rubbing fenders with Cale Yarborough for the win in the July 4, 1984 Firecracker 400 at Daytona.

The race was yellow-flagged with one lap to go. Richard and Cale knew that whoever crossed the line first would win the race. With smoke billowing and sparks flying, Richard Petty crossed the finish line a couple of feet ahead of Cale to win the 200th race of his career.

President Reagan had shown up at the event in time to see the exciting finish.

This piece is autographed by Richard Petty and the artist.
