The past few months have been extremely active for the GAINSCO Auto Insurance Show Car Program. Most of that time was spent on the road in Texas. Almost all of the GAINSCO Territory Managers were brand new to show car events and our Red Dragon race car. It is always a pleasure to be part of and share in the effort, hard work, joy—and hopefully production that a successful GAINSCO show event can bring to the partnership between TM and agent. In total, there were 23 agents, and three conventions that hosted The Red Dragon during this Texas-sized show car circuit! At about the halfway point of the journey, we encountered some new and uncharted territory, as the show car program got the call to attend our first IAAI convention in Gulf Shores, Alabama. In anticipation of entering the state by the end of the year, GAINSCO Auto Insurance wanted to make some early introductions. I think it went very well, it seemed like the state and agents could not wait to start writing business with us!
Afterward, it was back to business for some much needed time in South Texas. Speaking of new and uncharted territory, as far as the show car program is involved, we made our first trip to Brownsville, TX for a show car event with one lucky agency. Premier Group Insurance is pictured above with South Texas Sales Manager Devin Bryant and TM Kimberly Garst. This landmark event was made possible in large part by GAINSCO opening up the territory for a sales position and finding the right person for the job. Kimberly got the Texas part of the Gulf Coast road trip started out in The Valley, then relayed over to South Houston TMs Haleigh Lefebvre and Isadora Breeding for stops in Clute, Lake Jackson, and Victoria. Amid the two month long circuit, 90 percent of Texas TM’s hosted their first show car events! So, this “On the Road” is a toast and a cheers to everyone who helped keep this show on the road!
