Die-hard Washington Redskins fan Dale Earnhardt Jr. won't have to feel the pain of driving a Philadelphia Eagles paint scheme after all.

Earnhardt sponsor Axalta had planned for him to drive a car with the Eagles logo in the NASCAR Cup race June 11 at Pocono Raceway to promote the Axalta All-Pro Teachers program.

An Eagles spokesman tweeted at the time of the announcement in April an image of what the car would have looked like.

Earnhardt was not thrilled with the idea at the time, even calling team owner Rick Hendrick, who told him he had to do it.

"I'm really sad about that. Being a Redskins fan, it was very hard to wrap my brain around it," Earnhardt said on Periscope when the paint scheme was announced while admitting there was a "pretty cool angle" to the program.

But Earnhardt is off the hook. The Eagles and Axalta released a statement Friday stating that the paint scheme violated an NFL rule that club marks cannot be used in connection with the promotion or presentation of another sport.
