Sam Bass, NASCAR’s most prolific artist, returns to Bristol Motor Speedway this month with another piece of original artwork commemorating Ford Speedway In Lights Powered by TVA.

Bass created artwork for last year’s 15th edition of Speedway In Lights, the first in the series. This year’s poster features Santa and a car on the World’s Fastest Half-Mile decked out with a holiday paint scheme.

Bass has created hundreds of NASCAR-related artworks featuring the sport’s premier drivers. He appears at Speedway In Lights the next three weekends, Dec. 7-8, Dec. 14-15 and Dec. 21-22 in the General Shale Christmas Village in the BMS infield. The SIL posters are available for $5 each and Bass has other prints and posters as well.

A portion of the proceeds from poster sales benefit the Bristol Chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities.
