Germain Racing is looking to continue its consistency and build on that consistency in the next couple years, inking both Ty Dillon and Geico Insurance for multiple more years.
Both Geico and Dillon announced multi-year contract extensions with the No. 13 team of the single-car Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series team, Germain Racing.
The single-car team has a decade-long relationship with Geico. The insurance company will also continue its other various NASCAR-related sponsorships including the Geico 500 at Talladega Superspeedway, the Geico campgrounds, a large midway display at various racetracks, and its newest component, the Geico Restart Zone.
“Being able to partner with GEICO all these years has been a source of great pride for our race team and for me personally,” said Germain Racing team owner Bob Germain, Jr.
“They’re an incredible company and they support our sport in so many different ways. We’re very fortunate to be the team that gets to represent GEICO on the race track. I appreciate their support and I look forward to working with them in the years to come.”
Germain, Jr. said that Dillon’s rookie season performance in 2017 has been commendable and at times very exciting.
“We have extended Ty’s contract, and look forward to crew chief Bootie Barker and Ty leading the team to more success. They will be supported by all of the same great team members who have helped build Germain Racing.”
Dillon said the No. 13 primary sponsorship is amazing, and that he appreciated them being a great supporter of NASCAR as a whole
“I love having the chance to represent them and be a part of their widespread footprint in the sport, along with their long-standing relationship with Germain Racing. We’ve experienced success together during my rookie season and I’m excited for what the future holds for our No. 13 GEICO team,” said Dillon.
Germain Racing will also continue its technical alliance with Richard Childress Racing (RCR). The partnership with RCR, and the ECR Engines under the hood provides the team the ability to be competitive .
“[RCR] provides the single-car team with the opportunity to experience continued growth as they race side-by-side each week with NASCAR’s top teams,” Germain Racing said in a press release issued yesterday.
Aa a full time driver in the No.13 this year, Dillon is both a contender and is eligible for the 2017 Sunoco Rookie of the Year.
The announcement of Dillon returning to the No. 13 puts to bed rumors of Dillon moving over to RCR for the 201 season.
