About GAINSCO/Bob Stallings Racing
Are You Driven?®
Two-time champions, Dallas-based GAINSCO/Bob Stallings Racing is one of the most successful sports car racing organizations in American motorsports today. The team and the famed No. 99 “Red Dragon” make their return in the 2016 Pirelli World Challenge, entering a McLaren 650S GT3 in the fast-growing and highly competitive GT category.
Bob Stallings Racing entered the professional sports car scene in 2005 with American co-drivers Alex Gurney and Jon Fogarty. They quickly became one of the most successful American teams of all time earning 16 victories, 31 pole positions and two Daytona Prototype Sports Car championships in 112 races over nine seasons.
Primary sponsor GAINSCO Auto Insurance and Bob Stallings Racing have been synonymous in success. GAINSCO’s rapid growth as a company can be attributed in part to its “Are You Driven?®” marketing campaign that uses the championship-winning racing team and the No. 99 “Red Dragon” as its main brand and focal point.
The 2016 campaign will see four-time racing Champion Jon Fogarty return to the GAINSCO/Bob Stallings Racing squad to drive the No. 99 McLaren 650S GT3. Returning team personnel include Team Manager Terry Wilbert, a founding GAINSCO/Bob Stallings Racing team member, and Technical Director John Ward who is in his fourth full season with GAINSCO after joining the team in 2012.
Fogarty holds the record for most pole positions in the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car series (25) and won the Toyota Atlantic Championship in 2002 and 2004 before earning his two Sports Car Championships with co-driver Gurney in 2007 and 2009.
Everyone at GAINSCO Auto Insurance® and GAINSCO/Bob Stallings Racing is as they work together again in 2016 to continue this championship legacy.
