Germain Racing announced Wednesday that it has moved its race shop to Welcome, North Carolina, to be closer to technical alliance partner Richard Childress Racing’s shop. Germain Racing’s previous shop had been in Mooresville, North Carolina.

Richard Petty Motorsports, also aligned with Richard Childress Racing, moved its race shop to the RCR campus last year. Germain Racing’s shop also will be on the RCR campus.

“We are committed to our technical alliance with Richard Childress Racing,” team owner Bob Germain said in a statement from the team. “As we prepare for this upcoming season of competition, it is logistically beneficial to be closer to their headquarters. We are looking forward to strengthening our relationships with our alliance teammates in order to advance our engineering strategies and improve on-track performance. This is an exciting move for our team and partners, and I know it will be a valuable one for our overall race program.”

Ty Dillon, driver of the No. 13 for Germain Racing, finished 27th in the points last season, his second with the team. Dillon had a career-best finish of sixth at Daytona last July.
