Geico is a car insurance group. Their logo is the famous "Geico Gecko." They have been involved in NASCAR since 2001.

Sprint Cup SponsorshipEdit

GEICO made it's first sponsorship in NASCAR in 2001. It sponsored Kenny Wallace's #27 Eel River Racing Pontiac at Richmond International Raceway. However, the car didn't qualify and GEICO did not sponsor the team after the race. GEICO did attempt to make the 2001 Brickyard 400 with Derrike Cope's #37 Pontiac. However, that car, too, failed to make the race.

GEICO returned with Cope's team in 2002, as Kevin LePage ran a second Cope car, the #38 in the Winston Open and the Coca-Cola 600.

GEICO's last Sprint Cup sponsorship came in 2004, when they sponsored their Nationwide Series driver, Mike Wallace's endevour at Dover International Speedway. The #50 GEICO Dodge made the race.

The deal was a ten-race deal in 2002, and slowly began to increase throughout the years. In 2004, Wallace won the race at Daytona. By 2005, with new driver Ryan Hemphill, Geico sponsored the car in all the races.
