The start of the 2017 GAINSCO Show Car season kicked off with a two-part circuit that saw a Florida to Arizona road trip with plenty of new faces in familiar places! Most notable was the first stop at Sebring International Raceway for a testing with the newest face to the GAINSCO/Bob Stallings Racing family, the beautiful 2017 GAINSCO Auto Insurance® Porsche 911 GT 3 R. Fresh off the production line (built with the help of our team), this was the first real test for the new Red Dragon™. While the team and a few select GAINSCO Auto Insurance VIPs were getting up close and personal with the new car when it wasn’t on the track, we also brought out the 2015 GAINSCO Racing Pirelli World Challenge GTS Hyundai Genesis race car for some hot laps, driven by none other than our very own Bob Stallings!
GAINSCO Auto Insurance hosted their Florida sales team at the track, where Bob drove hot laps with them in the Hyundai Genesis as he explained at 150mph+ his patented pitch: “Selling GAINSCO policies makes the race car faster.” This was quite the welcome mat rollout for Florida’s newest GAINSCO Territory Mangers: Chuck Bush and Teri Brown. They are pictured above with seasoned veteran Ray Lozano (from left to right: Ray, Chuck, and Teri), as they get ready for the ride of their lives! Of course, after that they were so excited for show car events with their partner agents, they couldn’t contain their enthusiasm. After a pit stop back in the Dallas office for a few days, I was then off to Arizona, who did not get an official show car circuit last year. I found TM Nicole Jackson introducing me to a new face out west, her new AZ teammate Taylor Jerbasi. While partnering with some familiar top-producing agents to host a round of show car events, Taylor was able to co-host her first GAINSCO show car event in Tucson AZ.
