5th Generation of Corn Farmers Next Door to Chicagoland Speedway

Kenny Wallace calls Glenn Fritz “the ultimate farmer.” This morning the Illinois Corn Growers hosted an off the track pre-race meal that included an appearance by Kenny. We were located at Greenfields Campground owned by farmer Glenn Fritz.

I kind of let Kenny take the microphone to chat with Glenn. Glenn has a grandson on the farm that is now the 5th generation of the family on the land. He’s got an interesting story to tell and I think you’ll enjoy listening to it.

Listen to Kenny and Glenn here:
