“We’ve been working on this deal since we announced the Geico team, and it’s great to finally reveal our plans for the second team,” says team owner Richie Morris. “Bruce (Rossmeyer) and I have been partners since 1994 and it is exciting to continue our relationship. It is equally exciting to have a young hard charger like Danny on board.”
