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 2017 campaign will see four-time racing Champion Jon Fogarty return to the GAINSCO/Bob Stallings Racing squad to drive the No. 99 Porsche 911 GT3 R.
