Germain Racing, a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race team, is home to the No. 13 GEICO Chevy SS driven by Casey Mears. Established in 2004 by Germain brothers Bob, Steve and Rick, Bob Germain Jr. remains at the helm of the Sprint Cup team. 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.
The first race for Germain in the premier Sprint Cup Series came in 2009 with GEICO and the No. 13 Germain Racing entry. The first Sprint Cup Series top-ten finish came in just the eighth start for Germain Racing - an 8th-place result at Watkins Glen International Raceway. This result was very much in line with the team's history of on-track success.
Today, Germain Racing is located in Mooresville, N.C., on a 3-acre campus with two buildings, 52,000 sq. ft of shop and office space, paint and body shops, multiple surface plates, a four-post rig, two epoxy setup plates and a chassis dyno.
