DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — The Daytona 500 is ready to go crazy.

Danica Patrick and Jeff Gordon will join Grammy-winner Cee Lo Green for a pre-race, made-for-TV party on Daytona Beach. The "Daytona 500 Bash at the Beach" special airs at 8 p.m. Saturday on Fox.

Miami Heat disc jockey DJ Irie will be on hand, with appearances expected by drivers Jimmie Johnson, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Tony Stewart, Clint Bowyer and other guests. The Bash is Friday night at the Daytona Beach bandshell.

The event is a wristband-only event and tickets are being allocated to event sponsors to use at their discretion. Sprint is giving away tickets to the event at their Sprint Experience at Daytona International Speedway.
