Midwest Track Day Chili Cook-Off Raises $5323 To Help Deploy Soft Barriers At NCM Motorsports Park

The first annual Midwest Track Day Chili Cook-Off raised $5323.50 to help NCM Motorsports Park begin building their own fleet of Air Fence with the support of the Roadracing World Action Fund! The event was held September 5 at NCM Motorsports Park, in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

The Chili Cook-Off had 6 competitors battling for the Championship Belt. They ranged from a California ChiliMac, to a Vegetarian “Vegg Out" Chili to a Blazin’ Hot Meat-tacular A-Bomb entry. But, when the air had cleared and the votes were tallied, we had our first ever Champion, Ashley Rackovan with her "Momma Don’t Play Chili”.

“I really wanted to take home the belt. But, I’m glad to see it with its rightful owner,” said Midwest Track Day Director, Jeffrey D. Wheat. “And, I can’t thank everyone enough for their support of this event and of the Roadracing World Action Fund. Corvette money built this track. Now Motorcycle money needs to finish it.”

Midwest Track Day would like to thank all of the sponsors who supported this great event and everyone who donated to the cause. Everyone on this list truly cares about the track community and is actively making efforts to make our sport safer.

Sponsors include, NCM Motorsports Park, National Corvette Museum, Yamaha Motor USA, Good Grip Racing Services, ABI Photo, Velocity Calibrations, Turn One Racing, Alpha 1 Vinyl Works, GP Motorsales, John Murray Massage, Bohemian Garden Restaurant and my Mom.
