Supporting automotive companies for over a century

With roots in the Midwest that date back well before the Model T, Fifth Third Bank has a long history of serving the needs of automotive companies.

While much has changed over the years, our passion for helping businesses put cars on the road and on the track has not. Today, we are more committed than ever as a member of SEMA, a founding member of PRI, and a sponsor of multiple race teams across several racing series.

"My RTR business has exploded, and we couldn't have done it without Fifth Third. They provided the capital and strategic advice we needed."

— Vaughn Gittin, Owner, RTR Vehicles

"For the last decade, Fifth Third has been a steadfast supporter of the industry and a great partner. They've also been a great bank for us even before they sponsored the #17 Ford Mustang, sharing creative ideas to help transform our business." 

— Steve Newmark, President, RFK Racing
