The command to start engines at a NASCAR race does not appear to be a tough task but when celebrities attempt to add flare to the situation it becomes a nightmare.
That happened on Saturday night at Daytona International Speedway when actors Kevin James, Adam Sandler and former NBA player Shaquille O’Neil.
There have been a few positive responses on twitter but the majority have been negative.
Worst “start ur engines” of all time!

Fans always hate commands like that because it’s non-traditional and NASCAR trying to be something other than NASCAR. #nascar

Embarrassing beyond belief.

Sandler and James were at the track promoting their new movie “Grown Ups 2” and previously had given the command at Michigan in 2010.
There are hundreds more like those above but without black flagging a parked car I think you get the point.
