Although this weekend made a splash with the NBA All-Star Game, another sport snagged some headlines. Josh Duhamel, along with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and director Michael Bay served as Grand Marshals at the Daytona 500 in Daytona Beach, Fla. The TRANSFORMERS: Dark of the Moon team proclaimed the four most famous words in motor sports: "Gentlemen, start your engines."
