GAINSCO No. 99 Driver Jon Fogarty

Jon Fogarty joined GAINSCO/Bob Stallings Racing early in the 2006 season and quickly became a key component in the team’s two GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series Championships.  Fogarty partnered with co-driver Alex Gurney in capturing both the 2007 and 2009 GRAND-AM Rolex Series Daytona Prototype Championships. In 2017, Fogarty returns for his tenth season of racing with the GAINSCO/Bob Stallings Racing squad as the primary driver of the No. 99 GAINSCO Auto Insurance/Porsche 911 GT3 R in the Pirelli World Challenge.

GAINSCO, Fogarty and co-driver Gurney scored a series-leading four wins in 2009’s championship season in addition to a dominating and record-setting run to the 2007 title that saw the team capture victories in half of the year’s 14 races.  Fogarty’s most recent victory came in GAINSCO’s home state of Texas at Circuit of The Americas, March 2, 2013. That win was earned from Fogarty’s first of two poles in 2013, extending to 25 his record as the all-time Daytona Prototype career pole leader.  His run of seven consecutive poles in 2007’s championship season also remains a series record.

Including his Daytona Prototype titles, Fogarty captured four professional championships in the span of seven years. He also won the 2002 and 2004 Toyota Atlantic Championships and is one of the few drivers in the Pirelli World Challenge who has won multiple professional titles in different racing series.
