GEICO, Ty Dillon and Germain Racing ink multi-year contract extensions

Mooresville, N.C. (09-5-2017) -Germain Racing's ten-year relationship with GEICO kicked off in 2008 and the Mooresville, N.C.-based team is proud to announce that the GEICO logo and legendary Gecko will continue to appear for years to come on the #13 GEICO Chevrolet, driven by Ty Dillon in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. In addition to its sponsorship of Germain Racing, GEICO continues to have an expansive presence within NASCAR, including the GEICO 500 at Talladega Superspeedway, the popular GEICO campgrounds, a large midway display at various racetracks, as well as the newest component, the GEICO Restart Zone, all of which are complemented by a sizeable multilevel media platform.

"Being able to partner with GEICO all these years has been a source of great pride for our race team and for me personally. 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," says team owner, Bob Germain, Jr. "Ty Dillon has given us some very exciting races in his rookie season. 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."

In addition to GEICO, Germain Racing has been successful in building many successful sponsor relationships that have spanned multiple years, such as Caymus Vineyards, WIX Filters, Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes and ZAK Products. In 2017, the organization and its driver kicked off a multi-year agreement with Twisted Tea that has seen the drink company experience a demonstrated increase in sales with their specially branded 'No. 13' packaging.

"GEICO is an amazing sponsorship partner and 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," says driver Ty Dillon, a 2017 Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender.

Germain Racing will continue its technical alliance with Richard Childress Racing (RCR), one of the most prestigious organizations in NASCAR. The partnership with RCR, as well as the power of ECR Engines, 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.
