Dale Earnhardt Jr., is a very big Washington Redskins football fan. He wrote a whole op-ed on the topic for ESPN, and he has hot takes just like any other fan.

Unfortunately, his sponsor, Axalta, doesn’t really care about his fandom.

Axalta has teamed up with the Philadelphia Eagles, Washington’s NFC East rival, to put together an Eagles-themed Axalta car that Earnhardt Jr. will have to drive at the Pocono 400 in June.

That’s awkward! No word yet on what Earnhardt Jr. thinks of the car, but he’s not one to hold back his opinions on Twitter, so hopefully we’ll hear soon.

And if Earnhardt Jr. crashes at Pocono, well, I think we’ll know what happened.
