No matter how big and famous you are, everyone needs a pep talk once in a while. For NASCAR star Jeff Gordon, his pep talk came from comedy icon Vince Vaughn.

The "Wedding Crashers" star was given the opportunity to serve as the grand marshal at the Daytona 500 on Sunday.

Before the race even kicked off, Vaughn was already taking charge and giving the three-time Daytona 500 winner some pointers.

Unfortunately, Vaughn's advice fell on deaf ears as the racing icon really just wanted to be left alone to make a phone call. Considering he finished in 33rd place, it might not have hurt to let Vaughn psych him up a bit.
