Today, Axalta Racing held a press conference at Commerce Square in Philadelphia to unveil a special race car to honor the Super Bowl champions.
The car will be driven by Alex Bowman, who pilots the No. 88 car in the NASCAR Cup series, in the Gander Outdoors 400 at Pocono Speedway on July 29.
Last year, avid Redskins fan Dale Earnhardt Jr. was supposed to drive an Eagles-themed scheme, but because of an NFL policy — that has now been rectified — he was unable to use that look.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell (@nflcommish) apologized to @Axalta CEO Charlie Shaver in a letter over the flap last year that saw the NFL prevent Axalta from running an @Eagles paint scheme on @DaleJr's No. 88 due to a purported NFL rules violation, Shaver tells @sbjsbd. pic.twitter.com/HcgNmb3cEO— Adam Stern (@A_S12) February 17, 2018
As the saying goes, hungry dogs run faster, but maybe for one day, they'll drive faster.
