Texas Two-Step

5-15 main

It was a Texas two-step in May for the GAINSCO Auto Insurance show car program as we danced our way through the state, making multiple stops in GAINSCO’s Texas territories including East Texas, Waco, Corpus Christi, and San Antonio. The April showers brought on May flooding (not May flowers) throughout most of the state but ended an almost five year drought! We were very fortunate while traversing the state to avoid any major weather and road closures. All the Texas agencies that the new “Red Dragon” visited were very appreciative and excited to be able to do something for the community by giving back during a show car event with some much needed smiles, free food and drinks!

Pictured above are GAINSCO Auto Insurance Territory Manager Kellen Brittain and the all-ladies team over at Aright Insurance in Bryan TX. They had a great event with a bounce house for the kids, some amazing face painting, a raffle for auto detailing packages, and a custom Red Dragon “Aright/GAINSCO Auto Insurance” race car cake (see below).

5-15 dogwood The show car event at Dogwood Insurance in Livingston TX on the main street in the historic downtown was hard to miss- But just in case, balloons helped draw attention to the event!
5-15 Budget Raffling off three children’s bikes at Budget Insurance in Waco TX was a big hit, and helped to generate a lot of leads for the agency.
5-15 Affordable By day two, the word had got around town that a Hyundai Genesis coupe race car was in Corpus Christi TX and the local Hyundai dealership sent someone over to Affordable Insurance to investigate.
5-15 IIAT It’s the GAINSCO girls (or some of them anyways), representing GAINSCO well at the annual IIAT convention in San Antonio TX.

Cool Rides

5-15 Sweet Rides 1 We had ourselves a Hyundai Genesis car show at GN Insurance in Corpus Christi TX. Check out Letty DeLoach’s black GAINSCO Genesis coupe!
5-15 sweet rides 2 This 2004 Subaru Legacy wagon with its 6cyl. boxer engine, slammed on retro C4 Corvette rims was  loud and feisty as it pulled up to see what was going on at Unity Insurance in San Antonio TX.

Good Eats

5-15 good eats 1 A real piece of cake art! The custom No.99 race car cake was hand-made the night before by professional friends of Aright Insurance in Bryan TX. It was a big hit!
5-15 good eats 2 Tacos “al Pastor” (vertical rotisserie, spit-grilled pork), was amazing at Guajillos-The Shortcut to Mexico! Make sure and use the pineapple slices, lime and garnish for the whole “al Pastor” experience.


5-15 travels I had a day to explore some of Corpus Christi TX, but I spent it all at the beach! The Texas Surf Museum was really cool.
5-15 travels 2 A few miles from our show car event in San Antonio TX, at North Star Mall, I discovered the world’s largest boots, a well-known city landmark created by Texas artist Bob “Daddy-O” Wade.
