GAINSCO/Bob Stallings Racing driver Jon Fogarty says the team is still on track to have a solid season despite a heavy crash at the last race at Road America that forced the team to purchase a new Porsche 911 GT3 R.
Fogarty had qualified third and was three-wide with two other competitors heading towards Road America’s Turn 5 when contact sent the No. 99 Porsche hard into the wall, causing significant damage to the tub and forcing the team to scramble to find a new chassis ahead of the next round at Mid-Ohio.
Speaking from Utah Motorsports Campus where the team was conducting a shakedown test with the new Red Dragon on Wednesday, Fogarty told Sportscar365 that the timeline from identifying the extent of the damage to securing a replacement car was a short one.
