The Red Dragon™ Sponsored by GAINSCO Auto Insurance®
New for 2018, GAINSCO Auto Insurance® returns to its Sports Car roots, endurance racing, competing in the prestigious IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Championship as the primary sponsor of the No. 99 Red Dragon™. GAINSCO Auto Insurance and Bob Stallings recently announced their partnership with IMSA Champions JDC-Miller MotorSports to field the Red Dragon, a Gibson powered ORECA prototype in the highest level of American Sports Car competition.
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. In addition to its extensive at track activation program through the racing sponsorship, GAINSCO Auto Insurance hosts a show car (a retired No. 99 Red Dragon) for the benefit of its appointed independent agents that tours the states where GAINSCO markets its personal auto policies (Arizona, Florida, Georgia, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Virginia). With over 200 appearances annually, the program generates enthusiasm among race fans, GAINSCO policyholders, and insurance agents alike, providing an up-close view of the excitement and technology of Sports Car racing.
