The summer is in full effect, and we turned up the heat at the latest GAINSCO Auto Insurance® show car circuit. The weather is ramping up this year, seasoning the show car program and preparing us to cook up some fun!
First up, was a familiar place in Savannah, TN, aptly named Savannah Insurance They had a show car event in 2017. The area is now, covered by Kayla Porter, the Tennessee East Territory Manager. Kayla is the new face to fill the freshly created role at GAINSCO, which will help bring more interaction to the territory and better serve our partner agents. After her first show car event, Kayla and I headed to the Professional Insurance Agents convention in Tennessee, to meet up with some more familiar faces. Jose Mimoso, Field Sales Director, and Justin Robinson, Sales Manager were at the convention to introduce Kayla and Derek King as the state’s newest GAINSCO TMs. Derek moves over from South Carolina, and is now the TN West TM, he was excited to serve up a few show car events in his new territory.
Justin Robinson, who exudes GAINSCO’s Championship Characteristics, put in some serious highway miles to follow me over to Virginia to handle the next leg of the circuit. A fellow road warrior and man after my own heart had his family in tow. He worked it out with his family so they could spend quality time on a summer road trip that just so happened to involve some show car fun. We met up in Fredericksburg, VA to team up with veteran producer and show car aficionado, D&L Insurance. D&L has hosted a handful of events and is continually looking to improve, by thinking of ways to maximize a show car event. They certainly lit the fuse at the 2019 Spotsylvania Stars and Stripes Spectacular. The Red Dragon was used to feature D&L at the all-day family festival (pictured above) in the interactive automobile area. The event culminated with an Independence Day firework show that surely would have been a sight to behold. However, we had back-to-back events scheduled and had to get on the road. The show car circuit wrapped up in Richmond, VA on a Sunday, with Latinos Services. They hired a DJ, cooked up some delectable Latin hot dogs, raffled off a flat-screen TV, and had a bounce house that all the kids enjoyed!
