Germain Racing Joins Ford Racing Family for 2012
Mooresville, NC (January 6, 2012) – Germain Racing, owned by Bob Germain Jr., announces today 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. Germain explains that the move is well in line with long-term Germain family relationships.
“The Germain's have a long history with Ford Motor Company. My grandfather worked with Henry Ford as an accountant and my father worked as a guide in the Henry Ford Museum. Our family currently owns and operates both Ford and Lincoln dealerships and we have many friends at Ford Motor Company. I'm excited to join the Ford Racing team,” said Germain.
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. Germain Racing has secured two NASCAR championship titles 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.
