Dungey Becomes Part Owner of GEICO Honda
Just as the final month of the offseason begins, a major announcement has been made by the renowned Factory Connection Racing team, better known as GEICO Honda. In an announcement on the team's official Instagram page, four-time Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship titleholder Ryan Dungey has been named as the newest part owner of the effort, joining team founder Rick "Ziggy" Zielfelder, co-owner and fellow Minnesota native, Jeff Majkrzak, and co-owner Mike Grondahl.
While more information on Dungey's new partnership with GEICO Honda is sure to come out in the following days and weeks before the start of the 2020 season, he joins one of the sport's most successful factory supported teams of all time, with a history that dates back to 1998, hallmarked by legends like Mike LaRocco and Kevin Windham. Since 2001, GEICO Honda has served as part of the iconic Japanese brand's factory effort in the 250 Class, amassing more than 20 wins, capturing a pair of championships, and launching the careers of Eli Tomac, Justin Barcia, and Trey Canard, to name a few.
