LG Motorsport's Lou Gigliotti is Running for Congress

I just got a heads up from a friend that Lou Gigliotti, Corvette race car driver and founder of LG Motorsports is running for the 4th congressional district in Texas. Without getting too political on a car blog, Lou’s 30 years experience as a small business owner and his legendary competitiveness is just the kind of experience needed in Washington. Please take a moment to visit Gigliotti for Congress and let’s all wish a fellow Corvette driver lots of luck in this new endeavor.
