When you’re Mars, producer of the many varieties of M&M’s and other candies, there’s really only one way you can honor Kyle Busch’s Sprint Cup championship.

Busch’s sponsor for the No. 18 Toyota bestowed the driver with a seven-foot portrait of him celebrating his championship at Homestead-Miami Speedway that was constructed entirely of M&M’S, Skittles and Snickers.

Also, Pedigree dog food.

The mural was made by artist Jim Victor and his partner Marie Pelton. It took 80 hours to complete and was presented to Busch and the No. 18 team Thursday evening. It will be displayed permanently at the shop of Joe Gibbs Racing in Huntersville, N.C.
