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

Axalta unveiled the special look for Earnhardt’s No. 88 Chevrolet SS on Wednesday, which will prominently display the Axalta All-Pro Teachers logo during the Pocono 400 weekend, June 9-11.

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.

“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.
