Jayski.com: Earnhardt's Axalta scheme to feature Philadelphia Eagles at Pocono

Dale Earnhardt Jr. may root for the Washington Redskins, but this June at Pocono Raceway, he'll pilot a Philadelphia Eagles paint scheme.

Wednesday morning, Axalta unveiled the special look for Earnhardt's #88 Chevrolet SS. Most importantly, the scheme will prominently display the Axalta All-Pro Teachers logo.

In its third year, the All-Pro Teachers program recognizes outstanding sixth- through 12th-grade teachers concentrating on STEM education in the greater Philadelphia area.

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2017 program -- to learn more, click here.

"Having terrific partners really helps to make programs like the Axalta All-Pro Teachers reach a larger community," said Axalta Chairman and CEO Charlie Shaver. "The exposure that the Axalta All-Pro Teachers program will receive at the Pocono 400, thanks to Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s popular No. 88 car, will showcase the campaign to a national audience. We thank the Philadelphia Eagles, Dale Jr., and Hendrick Motorsports for their dedicated support of such a worthwhile program."

The scheme is designed to increase awareness of the program in the greater Philadelphia area as well as point to the importance of STEM education nationally.
