CONCORD, N.C. – Dale Earnhardt Jr. and the No. 88 Axalta team had some special visitors at Pocono Raceway last weekend.
The mascot for the Philadelphia Eagles – Swoop – along with some of the team’s cheerleaders made the trip to the Pennsylvania track to help celebrate the Axalta All-Pro Teachers program.
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.
Earlier in the week, Earnhardt met Eagles defensive tackle Fletcher Cox, who doubled as Pocono’s pace car driver.
There was a big NFL presence at the track, as Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier also made an appearance.
