Make a shopping list
Make sure to plan out all the food that you’ll need for tailgating. You can even make a menu if you’d like to stay organized. For starters, you need to get together things like ingredients, cooking equipment, coolers, grills, as well as plates and cups. The convenience of an RV’s kitchen is perfect for preparing food for a tailgating party, so there’s no reason you’ll have to limit your selection of food. Be very detailed and specific when making your list to ensure an awesome tailgate experience!
You’re going to need more than food to make it a party. Bring some music and backyard games for some fun, easy entertainment. You’ll find plenty of people with horseshoes, footballs, cornhole sets, bocce ball, Frisbee, ladder toss, and much more! Many even bring portable satellite dishes and TVs to keep up on the racing action.
Prepare to host
Racing has its roots in the South -- and in the South, hospitality reigns as king. Tailgating is an excellent opportunity to meet people. There’s a large sense of camaraderie among race fans at DAYTONA, so don’t be surprised if you’re invited to a tailgate by your camping neighborhoods or some friendly fellow fans wander into your tailgate looking to mingle. Extra food and drinks are always recommended when you tailgate at DAYTONA.
