The Thomas Kinkade Company (TKC) today announced the release of Thomas Kinkade’s newest image entitled, “This is Talladega”. The image is one of the artist’s most exciting sports paintings to date. The rumble and roar of the cars is almost heard as they cross the finish line in this depiction of Talladega. Thomas Kinkade portrays the “Dominator” of Talladega, Dale Earnhardt, the famed No. 3 car, as taking the checkered flag to win the race.

Thomas Kinkade’s brother, Patrick Kinkade, will be at Saturday’s press conference at Talladega Superspeedway® as a representative for TKC to answer questions and talk about this exceptional painting. “For fans of Dale Earnhardt and Talladega Superspeedway®, this image will bring you back to the days of the ‘Dominator’ at Talladega…what a thrilling time,” noted Patrick Kinkade. “But fans of any motorsport will enjoy this masterpiece – the speed and excitement depicted on this canvas truly embodies the core rush felt by those who follow the spectacle of auto racing,” he added.
