Sorry about the misleading title, but this story showed up while waiting for the rain to cease in Illinois. The morning warmup is cancelled, which makes Old No 2 happy but gives me more time to go find obscure stories.

PaddockTalk reports Chef Anthony Puma of Target Chip Ganassi Racing won the league's annual Chili Cookoff, his second win in three years. The cookoff was part of a chartiable event, including raffles raising proceeds for IRL Kids, which provides child care of Indy Racing League and team personnel at venues.

Some of that chili should help clear up Dan Wheldon's sinus "bug" for the race. No truth to the rumor Roger Penske has offered Puma a multi-million dollar contract.
