The #99 GAINSCO/Bob Stalling Racing team has met with great success at Watkins Glen International with Gurney and Fogarty sharing the driving duties. They teamed up at The Glen for the first time in 2006, and claimed a second place finish in the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen. In 2007, Fogarty and Gurney swept both Rolex Series races at WGI, the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen and Crown Royal 200, on their way to the season title. The #99 did not return to victory lane at The Glen in 2008, but did take second in the Crown Royal 200. So far in 2009, Fogarty and Gurney have taken the top spot at Virginia International Raceway and Laguna Seca and currently sit atop of the Rolex Series season standings. Fans should expect the talented teammates to be one of the fastest cars on the track throughout the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen weekend, June 5-6.
