Start Your Engines!

Everyone's favorite dancing queen, Kristi Yamaguchi, will wave the flag to start this Sunday's Indianapolis 500. According to, she's the first female honorary starter in the race's history!

Unfortunately, Kristi is a last-minute replacement for boxer Floyd Maywether (sorry, had his named completely misspelled earlier), who recently lost his uncle. That's another DWTS connection; the last one (I think!) is that last season's winner, Helio Castroneves, is racing on Sunday.
