Actor Gerard Butler is keeping his command to start engines before the Daytona 500 under wraps.

“My command? That’s a surprise,” he said. “I have something up my sleeve, though, that I think you might like — or not. We’ll see what happens when I get out there. I like living in the moment.”

One reporter impressed Butler with a tweaked version of the actor’s famous “This is Sparta” line from the 2006 hit movie “300.” The reporter asked Butler if he considered opening with “This is Daytona!”

“Now, I’m going to say, ‘No, no, don’t be silly,'” Butler said. “And then I’m going to go to the organizers and say, (can I use) ‘This is Daytona?'”
