How Did the Phrase “Gentlemen Start Your Engines!” Get Started at the Indianapolis 500?

“Gentlemen, Start Your Engines!” has been a long-standing tradition at the Indianapolis 500 race for many years, but how did it get started?

No one exactly knows when it was first used, but the first documented case of its use was in 1950 by the PA announcer John Francis Horan. That year Horan announced, “Gentlemen, start your motors!” However, it may have been uttered before then by official starter Seth Kline. In fact, it’s possible he announced this phrase as early as 1948 to accompany an aerial bomb that was dropped at that time to signal the starting of engines. One wonders who thought up the idea of dropping a bomb near a crowded raceway to signal the start, and who then approved that suggestion.

Around 1952, the phrase was changed from “motors” to “engines”, and different reports about the start of the phrase emerged. Wilbur Shaw who was president of the Speedway in the 1940’s and 50’s claimed he came up with it, but his claim has mostly been discredited.

In 1977, the first woman raced in the Indianapolis 500 and the phrase that year was changed to, “In company with the first lady ever to qualify at Indianapolis, gentlemen start your engines!” Today, if a woman is in the field of racers, the phrase used to start the race is “Lady and Gentlemen, start your engines!”
