My Daytona 500 party tips are to shop early and decorate the day before the race. Be sure to have lots of healthy and also lots of naughty foods for your guests. Also remember to have non alcoholic choices for people and make sure no one drinks and drives. Have fun and enjoy the race. It is also fun to have car themed door prices for men and women.

Jello shots are a must, along with spaghetti pie, made with Ragu, of course

Don't forget the kiddos! I like to have treats for them, like krispy rice treats shaped like cars. I let the kids ice and decorate their own treat. I also like to make pasta wheels with pasta sauce and cheese. My son loves pasta shaped like race car tires!!
