On May 20, 2006, GMAC Insurance expanded the spotlight for one of their Independent Agents, Foy’s Insurance Agency of Jacksonville, N.C. The lucky Agency shared a portion of the marketing space on the No. 25 GMAC-sponsored Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet, driven by Brian Vickers. Candy Foy, owner of Foy’s Insurance Agency, attended the race along with Cindy Anhorn and Sheila Foy, two of her agents.
Foy’s Insurance Agency was given this opportunity through an exclusive GMAC Insurance marketing promotion in conjunction with Hendrick Motorsports of Charlotte, N.C. The Foy’s Insurance Agency name appeared alongside GMAC Insurance on the rear portion of the car known as the “TV Panel.” In addition, on race day Candy and her team were able to tour the Hendrick Motorsports facility, the garage and pit road at Lowe’s Motor Speedway.
Foy’s Insurance Agency has been in business since 1989 and is one of GMAC Insurance’s top producing agencies in North Carolina. Candy was congratulated by Brian Vickers through a surprise phone call the week before the race. She and her staff were even more thrilled to meet Brian in person at the track and to receive a custom engraved Hendrick Motorsports piston commemorating the event. Candy said, “I was honored to have my agency listed alongside GMAC Insurance for the world to see. This was truly a once in a lifetime opportunity.”
Rick Pierce, director of motorsports marketing for GMAC Insurance said, “This program is a great opportunity for GMAC Insurance to showcase our local agencies as a part of our motorsports marketing program. We are proud of the Foy agency and thousands of other local independent insurance agencies that represent GMAC Insurance across the country. For this reason, we will be expanding this program to other agencies throughout the 2006 racing season. ”
