The partnership includes technology sharing, engineering, research and development provided to Germain Racing as they switch their No. 13 GEICO Cup Series cars to Chevrolet next season. The partnership also includes Germain Racing utilizing the highly reliable and powerful engines of ECR Engines.
This will also be a homecoming of sorts for the team's driver, Casey Mears, as he drove for RCR in 2009.
"We are very pleased to have a team like Germain Racing become our partner," said Richard Childress, president and CEO of Richard Childress Racing. "Bob (Germain) and his team have been very committed to this sport and worked hard to improve every year.
"We have worked with Casey before and he's a very talented driver. We look forward to working with him and his crew chief Bootie Barker."
