Hey, that's my line!

That's probably what Indianapolis Motor Speedway chairwoman Mari Hulman George was thinking at the beginning of the 99th running of the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday. 

George was just about to give the iconic "start your engines" call—which she does every year—when she was interrupted by the person standing next to her. You can see George nearly backhand the disrupter and then shoot her the death stare afterward.
