The original painting was created live on stage in the Firestone Hospitality Chalet just behind the Pagoda at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway at the conclusion of the 2017 Indy 500. It was created to celeb=rate the amazing last few laps of the race with Takuma Sato and 3 time winner Helio Castroneves trading the lead a few times. The painting includes the USA flag as well as the Japanese and checkers. It additionally features a lighting bolt added at the last minute.
The painting was started about 45 min after the checkered flag and before the end of the evening both winning car owner Michael Andretti and winner Takuma Sato came by to say a few words to the Firestone guests and sign the painting!
