Germain Racing, owned by Bob Germain Jr., has announced that they will join the Ford Racing family for the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season. The team’s move to Ford means their No. 13 GEICO entry will become the No. 13 GEICO Ford Fusion.
Ford Racing has been competing for more than 110 years. That adds a significant amount of experience to Germain Racing’s seven-year tenure in the NASCAR community. The team has secured two NASCAR championships and 22 victories over the years. In 2012, the team is focused on getting top finishes with their GEICO Fusion program.
“Germain Racing is focused on getting strong results for our GEICO Fusion program. Heading into NASCAR’s first season of electronic fuel injection, we are extremely confident in the technology and engines from Roush & Yates Racing Engines that we will race this season,” said Germain, whose team has services agreements with Roush & Yates Racing Engines and Roush Fenway Racing for the coming year.
Germain Racing will again feature the talent of driver Casey Mears behind the wheel of the No. 13 GEICO Fusion entry. Mears joined Germain in 2010.
