James Franco had the honor of acting as Grand Marshal for the Daytona 500 and saying the most famous words in NASCAR to kick off the race, but his intro didn’t go so well.

Franco decided to tweak his intro and single out Danica Patrick by saying “Drivers — and Danica! — start your engines!”

The shout out came off as Franco picking on Danica and not considering as an equal among the racers. Needless to say, his gaffe did not go over so well with the crowd. Listen below.

Watch his intro below.
