Since entering the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series midway through the 2005 season, GAINSCO/Bob Stallings Racing has amassed a career performance record comparable to teams that have been racing for decades. In just 87 career team starts through 2011, GAINSCO has won 15 races, scored 38 total top-three podium finishes and placed in the top five in well over half its races.
The achievements are even more impressive when you look at the combined record of GAINSCO’s lead drivers Alex Gurney and Jon Fogarty. The teammates have co-driven to each of GAINSCO’s 15 victories as one of the most successful duos in GRAND-AM Daytona Prototype history.
After Gurney and team owner and then-driver Bob Stallings finished second for GAINSCO’s first podium finish at Watkins Glen International in just the team’s fourth race in 2005, Fogarty stepped in as Gurney’s full-time partner early in 2006. At the 2009 season-ending Grand Prix of Miami, Gurney and Fogarty celebrated their second championship with GAINSCO in their 50th race together, having finished on the podium in exactly half of the races to that point. The 2012 season-opening Rolex 24 At Daytona marked the 75th race together for Gurney and Fogarty as GAINSCO teammates.
As the team’s primary drivers the last five full seasons, Gurney and Fogarty joined the GAINSCO/Bob Stallings Racing team in winning the 2007 and 2009 GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series Team and Driver Championships, finishing second in the same championships in 2008, and third in 2010 and 2011.
