Asheboro artist Laura Ashley meets Daytona 500

In a twist of technique, Asheboro artist Laura Ashley, well known for creating major works of art in under five minutes, spent a weekend painting images of speed at the Daytona 500. 


Commissioned by Ally through Gallery 500, Ashley attended the race weekend where, over a period of three days, she rendered a composite painting featuring images of race cars and the speed experience. 


The 90-inch x 78-inch painting will hang in the Ally Suite Tower at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach.  Ally is a financial services company with the nation’s largest all-digital bank and an industry-leading auto financing business. Ally is a household name among racing fans, especially those who cheer on Alex Bowman and the No. 48 Ally Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. 


Ally also recently announced a new relationship with NASCAR, having Ally Bank become the official Consumer Bank of NASCAR and NASCAR-owned tracks.
