On April 29th an exhibit of "NASCAR Inspired Art" will debut at the Hickory Museum of Art. Stock Car Pit Pass and Race Team USA are proud to announce that our graphic artist Lori Munro will be among artists chosen for this prestigious exhibit. Inspired by the "Color of Speed," Lori is the creator of the popular "War Wagon" cartoon. Her unique digital media art starts with a Sharpie marker and a vivid imagination!

Her work will be featured at the Hickory Museum of Art in Hickory, North Carolina along with other stock car racing artists including Garry Hill and Randy Owens.
