George Del Canto on Enron, Racing, and Finding God

Failure, Faith, Perseverance, Podcast, Purpose


George Del Canto fell in love with racing at a young age, but put away his “little boy dreams” to enter the financial banking world. He said as he was entrenched in that world, money became his god. After years of world travel, George and his wife made their home in London. That’s where his wife began her relationship with the Lord. George felt lost in his lavish lifestyle, falling away from his wife and family. After his business (you may be familiar with it – Enron) collapsed, he gave his life to Lord and calmly awaited his next steps.

George talks about praying the “dangerous” prayer of “God, you’ve done so much for me. What is it you want me to do for You?” Buckle up for this amazing ride, from George taking his son to his first Indy 500 race to getting the vision to found Kingdom Racing.
