“Rivals Series Shootout” for Susan G. Komen Gets Premium Promotional Help from Germain Racing and The Forze Group Starting at Talladega



Mooresville, NC  (UPDATED May 7, 2013) – NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team Germain Racing will show support for Susan G. Komen® beginning at Talladega Superspeedway by promoting the upcoming “Rivals Series Shootout”, a golf tournament held September 25, 2013, at Lake of Isles Country Club, North Stonington, CT, with proceeds going to Susan G. Komen. The Rivals teams are made up of baseball names from New York Baseball Alumni and Boston Baseball Alumni, with Bucky Dent being the team captain for the New York side and Tim Wakefield serving as captain for Boston. The “Rivals Series Shootout” logo can be seen on the decklid of the No. 13 GEICO Ford Fusion and the C-post pink ribbons Germain Racing normally places on the car will be adapted to the Susan G. Komen pink ribbon logo.


Helping raise awareness for an organization such as Susan G. Komen, is important to Germain Racing as the team has boldly displayed a pink ribbon on the C-post of the No. 13 GEICO Ford Fusion for several seasons. In fact, the team first showed support for Breast Cancer Awareness efforts in the early years of the team’s foundation by running an awareness paint scheme on their race truck when the team competed in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.


The Forze Group is organizing the Rivals Series Shootout.  For more information or to become involved in the tournament, contact Chris Bova (email:
