To congratulate Kyle Busch, Joe Gibbs Racing and the No. 18 team on an amazing season culminating in Busch capturing his first-ever NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Championship, Mars Inc. presented the team with a mural, created entirely from the Mars products that have gone along for the ride on the No. 18 this season.
Crafted from thousands of M&M’S, Skittles, Snickers and Pedigree products, the seven-foot mural took more than 80 hours to create and replicates an iconic image captured immediately after Busch clinched the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Championship at Homestead-Miami Speedway. The mural was presented to Busch and the JGR team on Thursday evening, to commemorate the team’s first Sprint Cup Series Championship.
“From running on the M&M’S “Crispy Edge” for the win at Kentucky, to tasting the rainbow of victory with Skittles at Indianapolis to the final weekend in Miami, this has been a season Mars will never forget,” said William Clements, Vice President of Sponsorships for Mars. “It has truly been an honor for Mars to be a part of the team and join in tasting the success of the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship.”
The mural will take up permanent display at the Joe Gibbs Racing shop in Huntersville, NC.
