On Tuesday, Germain Racing announced that Ty Dillon and long-time sponsor, GEICO, have signed a multi-year contract extension to the No. 13 Chevrolet in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.

“GEICO is an amazing sponsorship partner and a great supporter of NASCAR as a whole. I love having the chance to represent them and be a part of their widespread footprint in the sport, along with their long-standing relationship with Germain Racing. We’ve experienced success together during my rookie season and I’m excited for what the future holds for our No. 13 GEICO team,” said Ty Dillon in a press release.

“Being able to partner with GEICO all these years has been a source of great pride for our race team and for me personally. They’re an incredible company and they support our sport in so many different ways. We’re very fortunate to be the team that gets to represent GEICO on the race track. I appreciate their support and I look forward to working with them in the years to come,” said team owner, Bob Germain, Jr. in a press release. “Ty Dillon has given us some very exciting races in his rookie season. We have extended Ty’s contract, and look forward to crew chief Bootie Barker and Ty leading the team to more success. They will be supported by all of the same great team members who have helped build Germain Racing.”

Germain Racing will continue its technical alliance with Richard Childress Racing and ECR Engines. The organization looks forward to continued growth under the alliance.

GEICO’s relationship with Germain Racing began back in 2008. The partnership has also expanded throughout NASCAR over the past 10 years. GEICO has expanded its program from being the entitlement sponsor at Talladega Superspeedway for the spring race, to the GEICO campgrounds, and the GEICO Restart Zone.

In his rookie season with Germain Racing, Dillon has led 40 laps. He currently sits in the 24th position in the points system. His best finishes of 13th came at Darlington and Talladega.
