The most popular driver in NASCAR, Dale Earnhardt Jr., is going to be racing in Eagles midnight green at the Pocono 400 on June 11 in Long Pond, Pennsylvania.
Axalta, Earnhardt's sponsor, unveiled the paint scheme for the No. 88 car today and it features the Eagles' logo on the side, wings on the back and midnight green throughout.

One problem, Earnhardt is a Redskins fan. He went live on Twitter to express his disappointment.
