“Happy New Year, everyone. This is Jon Fogarty of the GAINSCO Insurance racing team and I’m happy to be back on SPEEDSPORT.com to give you a behind the scenes look at our operation as we prepare for the 2017 Pirelli World Challenge road racing campaign.

It’s been tough winter at my family’s home in Bend, Ore., as we have had numerous feet of snow. I have done my share of shoveling this winter and my upper body is great shape. That’s very good for driving this year. It’s a little tough for biking though. And I was anxious to get in the testing mode for the upcoming season.

To be honest, last year we had our ups and downs in the GAINSCO team’s first PWC season in the highly-competitive GT category with the McLaren 650S sports car.”
