The Martelli Brothers are proud to present The 2012 General Tire Mint 400 Limited Edition Artist Poster! This years poster features the work of artist Jeral Tidwell of Human Tree – and includes a thrilling image of off-road racer Mikey Childress launching his Class 1 vehicle as originally captured by Mad Media’s Director of Photography, Vincent Knakal. Jeral Tidwell is know for his modern take on classic iconic motorsports imagery including skulls, pin-stripes, and pin-up girls – all laid against killer old school hot rods. This years poster pays tribute to the Mint 400’s thirty plus years of racing history with a nod to both the racers of the past and the present.
These custom 24x32 inch three-color hand screened works of art, are being printed on heavy archival quality acid-free manila cover stock. Each print will be signed and numbered by the artist.
