Sponsor Spotlight: Bianchi Farms
The Sprint Car Challenge Tour would like to thank John Bianchi and Bianchi Farms for their support once again this season. Bianchi Farms is a family operation, specializing in the production of white & wild rice, wheat, melons, and walnuts. The operation also includes rice dryer and storage facilities, as well as melon packing sheds. As a young boy, John Bianchi was always interested in racing. As a freshman in college he purchased a go-kart and went racing. Realizing he could not afford both racing and college however, schooling won out. For the next 45 years he developed the family farming operation to where it is today.
