Axalta and the Philadelphia Eagles have unveiled a new paint scheme for the No. 88 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 driven by Alex Bowman, one which celebrates the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles on the field and STEM educators in the classroom.
Axalta, which is headquartered in Philadelphia, has teamed with the Eagles since 2015 on the Axalta All-Pro Teachers program, celebrating outstanding sixth through 12th grade teachers who focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
The sharp green Chevy will race July 29 at the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Pocono Raceway (2:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).
“It’s pretty cool to have the reigning World Champion Philadelphia Eagles and the All-Pro Teachers logo on my Camaro ZL1 in Pocono in just a few weeks,” Bowman said in a press release. “That race weekend is going to be a special one with both of these logos on our No. 88 machine, so we’re hoping for a good finish.”

Axalta is an official partner of Hendrick Motorsports and NASCAR, and has long sponsored Hendrick’s fleet of Chevys with splashy and innovative paint schemes.
“Axalta is thrilled to be part of this historic moment and debut the No. 88 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1’s new color scheme, featuring the World Champion Philadelphia Eagles colors and the Axalta All-Pro Teachers logo,” said Axalta Chairman and CEO Charlie Shaver. “The exposure that the Axalta All-Pro Teachers program will receive thanks to Alex Bowman’s No. 88 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 will showcase the campaign to a national audience. We thank the Philadelphia Eagles, Alex Bowman and Hendrick Motorsports for their dedicated support of such a worthwhile program.”
