1. Kenny Powers is on a car.
In celebration of the HBO series, the network will sponsor the #50 Chevrolet driven by T.J. Bell at DRIVE4COPD 300 at Daytona International Speedway [on February 25].

In the first episode, Kenny can be…scrolls through “List of CEOs” Wikipedia page…Chuck Rozanski of Mile High Comics. “FADE IN: Kenny Powers is in an airplane bathroom.” Practically writes itself.
