The Winning Formula Chili Cook-Off

Putnam Park Road Course

About this event

Greetings all!  

This is our annual Fall event to celebrate what will have been the 2024 motorsport season!  For the third year running, we will feature our WF Chili Cook-Off on Saturday!  Last year's cook-off was a hit and I expect the competition to ratchet up another notch this year!  The winner of the Cook-Off will receive a complimentary weekend entry to 2025's event in order to defend their title.  If you're interested in making a chili for the event, please reach out to me at "".  Saturday's lunch will feature the Chili Cook-Off with 10 (or more) chilis prepared by your friends and fellow racers.  Sunday's lunch will be box lunches catered by a local restaraunt - I typically do Club sandwiches or Chicken Salad sandwiches.  Let me know if you have any dietary restrictions or preferences as most can be accommodated.

  • For those in need of sleeping accommodations, the Inn at Depauw is a nice option near the track in Greencastle.  The downtown area of Greencastle has a few nice, small-town restaurants.  For more lodging options, Plainfield is about 30 minutes away from the track with abundant lodging and dining options.  The Embassy Suites in Plainfield is among the newer, nicer hotels in the area:
