JDC-Miller Motorsports (its 2017 car pictured above) and Gainsco have announced that the iconic ‘Red Dragon’ will return to IMSA in 2018, the insurance company set to sponsor the team’s #99 Prototype class ORECA 07 Gibson driven by Misha Goikhberg, Stephen Simpson and Chris Miller.
Over the past two years, after dropping out of IMSA competition in 2014, the Gainsco ‘Red Dragon’ livery has featured on Bob Stallings Racing’s Pirelli World Challenge GT3 McLaren and Porsches.
Bob Stallings, chairman of Gainsco, as well as the founder of the Gainsco/Bob Stallings Race team, which recently announced it would stop racing, commented: “We had many opportunities to continue our quest for championships and JDC-Miller MotorSports was an easy pick. John Church and John Miller have established themselves as a team to be reckoned with, even against the formidable competition in IMSA.”
“After getting to know them both and seeing the success they have had in a short period of time and especially after watching their performance in the Mosport race last season, I knew we had found the right match. JDC-Miller has the resources, drivers, engineering experience and desire to win that I was looking for.
“JDC-Miller Motorsports reminds me a lot of the early days of Bob Stallings Racing, and I am looking forward to rallying the support of our combined fan-base behind JDC- Miller Motorsports and The No. 99 Red Dragon!” Continued Stallings.
