On the heels of an exhilarating return to prototype racing after a three-year absence from the IMSA WeatherTech series and Tequila Patrón North American Endurance Cup, GAINSCO Racing’s presence was felt by all and met by the likes of 50 other fierce competitors. We showed consistency and resilience throughout the season opener the Rolex 24 at Daytona International Speedway, finishing 7th overall. A few lucky and deserving partner agents from GAINSCO Auto Insurance’s southeast territory were treated to a VIP race weekend. Most of the VIP agents from Florida were also able to take full advantage of the hype and excitement of the race by hosting show car events at the agencies and bringing some of that experience to their customers
Also proving consistent and resilient was the GAINSCO Auto Insurance Show Car circuit surrounding the race, which made pit stops throughout the state en route to and from the race. It was a great circuit with some record setting events, including the A-1 Insurance group pictured above. A-1 in Quincy, part of GAINSCO’s Business Development Associate’s (BDA) call-based territories, waited patiently, for three years to get the green light for another show car event. They bided their time and planned for a big event, and GAINSCO knew it so the BDAs were deployed to help for this one show car event. It’s a good thing too, because we were busy all day with over 300 people stopping by and collecting over 160 new leads for A-1 Auto Insurance! What a great end to the show car circuit! However, later that night while starting the trip home, the show car trailer had an unknown issue and survived an electrical fire! We got back home safe and sound a few days later and continue the repair and cleanup process as the next circuit is always around the corner!
