Kenny Powers meets NASCAR in one of the most anticipated partnerships ever. On February 25, NASCAR Nationwide Series team MAKE Motorsports will kick off the 2012 season with a sponsorship from HBO and the hit comedy series “Eastbound & Down.” In celebration of the new season of Eastbound and Down, HBO will sponsor the #50 Chevrolet driven by T.J. Bell at DRIVE4COPD 300 at Daytona International Speedway.

The #50 Eastbound & Down / Make Motorsports Chevrolet features elements of lead character Kenny Powers’ prized jet ski, The Panty Dropper, with a purple and leopard-print scheme, as well as the likeness of the legend himself, who also hails from Shelby, North Carolina.

“The name and likeness of Kenny Powers have long been associated with victory and success,” said Powers. “It’s pretty obvious why somebody would want to put a giant picture of my face on a tastefully decorated stock car."

KP added, “Best of luck to our driver, T.J. Bell. If he doesn’t win first place at Daytona, they must not have made that picture of my face big enough.”
