the other "superbowl"... party ideas requested

Hi all, you're probably tired of superbowl food... but I need an idea for what is my household is the "other" superbowl... the daytona 500. I've go a group coming from out of town. they'll be here saturday night & sunday for the race.

here are the parameters.... snack type food only. we like to graze and pick, so no heavy, full meals are planned. I'm uninspired...

saturday night food must go with martini's. I know that if you drink enough of them, anything tastes good. but I need something heavy enough for dinner and for soaking up gin. :) was thinking of sliced tri tip crostini w/ aioli maybe? with double baked potatoes (small app sized) that someone posted about a while back (sorry I'd give you credit but can't find the post). any ideas are welcome.

sunday we'll be watching the race. we've got 7 layer dip (an annual favorite) and margaritas an the menu so far. any other ideas would be helpful to flush out the menu.

also, any recipes that can be made in advance are welcome. I have limited time but can start early.

thanks in advance.
