Auto parts store owner who was particulary good at hillclimbs. Glen, who was often listed as Schultz, was one of the best drivers during the 1920's at Pikes' Peak. He won the Open Wheel event - at the time this was the main event - in 1921 in a Ford Special, 1923 in a Hudson Essex and then for three successive years from 1926-1928 in a Stutz. He then won again in 1930, 1932 and 1933 in his own Shultz Stutz special that he built, and was until the Unser family started to dominate, the most successful driver at the event. He also won the 1929 Super Stock Car event at the hillclimb in a Studebaker. Shultz became poorly after the 1933 event, which was his last, dying early in 1936 from a long illness.
