About the Guest: Barry Grant grew up in a Bronx housing project and had what he earnestly describes as a "less than ideal" childhood, which included spending time at a reform school. Grant's determination to overcome the initial struggles in his personal life and in his business ultimately paid huge dividends. Today, he operates Barry Grant, Inc., a conglomerate of four companies; BG Fuel Systems, Rush Filters, Demon Carburetors, and Nitrous Works from a sprawling 50,000 square-foot complex in Dahlonega, Ga., that houses 60 full-time employees. The facility features 16 CNC machines, a 2,000 horsepower dyno, a wet flow bench, and two full-time Cad-Cam Engineers.
