Germain Racing was established in 2004 by Germain brothers Bob, Steve and Rick. The Germain family has been involved in the automotive industry for many years, but the team's formation marked the family's first foray into racing competition.
Just 26 months into its tenure in the NASCAR community, Germain Racing earned its first championship title. The 2006 feat was repeated in 2010. This outstanding success opened the doors for Germain Racing to grow from a Camping World Truck Series team, into a team fielding cars in each of NASCAR's top two series. GEICO joined Germain Racing as a primary sponsor in 2008 for a full-time schedule in NASCAR's number two series. The program grew into a Sprint Cup Series program by season's end.
