Great Race Day Snacks for Your Next Party

Race Day Snacks

Pre-Race Snacks

The race car season is going full tilt, so why not throw a big race day party for your friends and family? If you’re wondering what race day snacks you should provide at your next race day party, never fear – we’ve put together a list that will help you get started.

Spare Tire Donuts

If you’re going to be watching the big race, why not have a bit of a race day theme going on with your food? You can make your own chocolate-covered donuts at home (or purchase some from the grocery store) and call them spare tires. After all, those little circles sure do look like a delicious set of wheels.

BBQ Cocktail Wieners

There’s nothing more fool-proof than some delicious cocktail wieners. Simply buy a couple packages of these mini hotdogs, put them in a slow cooker, add some BBQ sauce and “Viola!” You have a delicious snack for your friends and family.

Hot Broccoli Dip

Sneak in something green into your guests’ race day meal with some hot broccoli dip. Just follow the recipe here and serve it with some tortilla or pita chips.

Pizza

Whether you order some from your local pizzeria or want to have your guests make their own, pizza is a great way to cater a party. You can even pick some up from the grocery store and simply pop it in the oven before the race begins.

Here at Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet Near Hickory, NC, we are always looking for some new race-day recipes, so feel free to share some of your own.

David Mazouz Promotes Safe Driving

When you’re out on the open road, it’s hard to ignore the bad drivers that are out there. Whether it’s someone texting behind the wheel or speeding through lane changes, these drivers are all a threat to others around them.  To help curb these bad driving habits at a young age, Chevrolet and DoSomething.org have created the “Brake it Down” campaign – and they’ve recruited a young Hollywood star to help them out.

Batman & Safety

David Mazouz, an actor best known for his portrayal as a young Bruce Wayne (Batman) in the TV show Gotham, has teamed up with Chevrolet and DoSomething.org in a video to promote better driving habits by portraying four types of bad drivers. The first driver he characterizes is the driver that is running late to a social engagement. Next, Mazouz acts like an automotive daredevil, taking driving risks that he shouldn’t. For the third character, he actually plays a distracting passenger – someone that won’t stop talking to the driver and keeping the driver’s attention from the road.

Text BRAKE

Finally, the last character he portrays is the Karaoke Champ, who belts out entertaining, but dangerously enthusiastic renditions of Vanessa Carlton’s “A Thousand Miles” and Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years.” Along with this video, the campaign also encourages young drivers nationwide to take the “Brake it Down” quiz. They simply have to text “BRAKE” to 38383 before September 15th and learn the on-road habits of their friends. When they do so, they not only receive customized driving tips to share, but will also be entered to win a $5,000 scholarship.
