 What will James Franco say at the start of the Daytona 500?
The Oscar-nominated actor is giving drivers the command to fire their machines, a duty that is normally carried out with the most famous words in racing: ``Gentlemen, start your engines.''
Of course, this year is different. Danica Patrick will be the first woman to start from the pole in a Cup race, so Franco sounds like he's planning an audible.
We'll see if he goes with the command that was used when Patrick raced in the Indianapolis 500, ``Lady and gentlemen, start your engines.''
Of course, you never know what Franco has up his sleeve.
