    Don't you ever get in the way of Mari Hulman George giving the command at the Indianapolis 500.

    As the Chairperson of Indianapolis Motor Speedway, she's traditionally given the command for drivers to start their engines for the iconic race.

    Sunday, she was escorted to the stage by a woman in a white dress who wanted to help. Hulman George, 80, didn't want it.

    Look at that death glare. We're working to identify the woman who got the look from Hulman George, though Deadspin identifies her as Nancy George, Mari's daughter. We're guessing there was a discussion after they exited the stage.
