Biography of Lou Gigliotti
Biography from Gigliotti for Congress
I moved to Texas just over 28 years ago. I had to come to Dallas on business once a month and I fell in love with Texas. And as they say, if I knew how good TEXAS was, I would have come sooner!
I borrowed $1200 from Beneficial Finance to get here. We came in a U-haul truck with my 2 month old son in a car seat, my wife and my dog on the floor.
In the old days, when a person saw success, they would say,”Only in America!” Now they say,”ONLY IN TEXAS!” could this happen. Texas is the greatest state in the union.
I have run my own business for 40 years. I was a Certified Math Teacher but left teaching in my 2nd year to start a racing and parts business 35 years ago. Lou Gigliotti is a 3 Time National Champion race car driver and team owner.
We have races everything from Bush cars, Corvettes, Formula cars and even Nascar Trucks. But our main focus in racing is also our business focus. WE RACE- YOU WIN! because we make the best performance parts inspired from our racing.
My wife Karen is instrumental in our business and in our family. We have been married for 29 years and she continues to be my better half. We have two children, Louis Jr. and Christina. Texas has been our home since 1983.
My son Louis completed 4 years at Purdue and has been working in our family owned business ever since.
My daughter Christina graduated from UT Austin in the McCombs Business School and is now a first year law student at Texas Wesleyan.
I received my BA degree and teaching certificate from Alfred University. After I got married, I worked toward my MBA at American University in DC while Reagan was president (Our last great President).
We started our current performance company in 1988. LG Motorsports Inc. has 10 employees plus our whole family works there. The company was born from our Corvette racing team but it has grown to be a great small business with 10-14 employees. We build and race our own cars, and we design and build the performance parts that we sell.
I know what it means to take an idea and turn it into a successful business. Starting from zero, we have turned our passion into a business right here in Wylie, Texas. We are known worldwide in the Corvette performance parts industry. Along with winning 3 national championships Gigliotti won the Dallas GP back in ’93 and the Paul Revere 250 at Daytona in 2002 and the Long Beach GP.
I am a fighter and winner and I refuse to sit back and let America lose its greatness. It is about the people NOT the Government.
As a member of Congress, I will NOT stay silent while DC is burning! I am young enough to speak out and fight for principles that matter to the Texans that I have come to know and love.
