Daytona 500 Race Car Theme Party

Race fans may enjoy the Daytona 500 Party more than watching the race at a sports bar with enough attention to party planning. There are two main elements to a sports party: food and a big screen television. A small TV will due in a pinch if traffic flow is considered in the viewing room.

When this is a necessity try setting the food in a separate location from the TV This will encourage non-race conversation to take place away from the serious sports fans. That will allow for less tension with those trying to concentrate on the smaller screen. TV
trays will be welcome addition to the viewing area allowing fans to grab snacks and quickly return to their race without the awkward balancing act that a plate and beverage would otherwise necessitate.

New for the coverage of the 2007 Daytona 500 stockcar race will be its prime time schedule. The race will begin at 4p.m. and last well after dark. Be prepared to entertain guests for hours since they may be inclined to stay well after the end of the race. Pre-race coverage starts early so do not plan any other activities for the day of this race!

It is likely that both a late lunch and dinner will be expected for a Daytona 500 Party. Cold cut platters, potato chips and themed paper party goods can be the best approach to feeding this crowd during the long race. Another idea would be to use slow cookers for baked beans or cocktail wieners. Buffet style serving is a must and cold beverages need to be kept on ice near enough for race fans to quickly refresh their own drinks.

When all preparations are made the only thing left is to listen for the instruction: "Gentlemen, start your engines!"
