Gerard Butler Serves as Grand Marshal at Daytona 500!

Gerard Butler stands awaiting the signal at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Daytona 500 held at Daytona International Speedway on Sunday (February 21) in Daytona Beach, Fla.

The 46-year-old actor was the Grand Marshal of the big race, and got to speak the famous line “Drivers, start your engines.”

“We’re honored to have Gerard Butler serve as Grand Marshal for the DAYTONA 500,” Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III said in a statement before the race. “Gerard is a talented actor and we look forward to hearing his starting command to kick off the first DAYTONA 500 held in the new motorsports stadium.”

Denny Hamlin won the race by a hair in a photo finish!

Also in attendance at the event were model Charlotte McKinney, wrestler John Cena, and more.
