TGP S01E29 | Glenn Wallace Went All-In


How many engines have you built this year?

As of November 19th, Glenn Wallace had built 155.

Let me put that another way. 46 weeks into the year, that’s more than three a week. If you divide 155 engines by the 322 total days already passed the night we had our call, that’s a new engine every other day. And get this—that’s only Mitsubishi 4G63s. He built several other engines this year, too.

As if that isn’t impressive enough, this dude walked away from college to pursue his dream of a career in motorsport. (His dad wasn’t exactly thrilled that my name came up in THAT discussion.) He started at the bottom. He worked his way up. And he has much to show for it.

Today, beyond building hundreds of race engines a year, he’s also out there supporting 3,000 horsepower monsters in the field and pushing the limits of his own project vehicle when he actually gets a couple hours for himself.

This is the real, deal, folks. Figure out what you want to do with your life and go all in.

Glenn Wallace is a gearhead project.
