Redskins Fan Dale Earnhardt Jr. to Race in Eagles Car at Pocono 400

[CSNPhily] Redskins fan Dale Earnhardt Jr. won't have to drive Eagles car after all

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.

"I'm really sad about that being a Redskins fan," he said. "I hope all my Redskins pals don't disown me."
The partnership is part of the #AllProTeachers campaign, which recognizes outstanding teachers in the tri-state area.
