Some replicas of antique racecars helped promote road safety today.

It was part of a first-time event called Road Wise.

Celebrities and racecar drivers raced the legends at the Hallett Racing Motor Circuit.

The celebrities, such as Oklahoma Sooners Coach Kelvin Sampson and singer Mel Tillis didn't take on the pros, but they did race each other.

In between races, local troopers and police officers showed visitors how dangerous cars can be.

Phillips 66 and KOTV are putting together a show from the event starring NASCAR driver Todd Bodine.

Bodine is teaching people that cars are very dangerous. He says even racecar drivers have to be on the lookout when they hit the streets.

"You have to go back on the defensive, and that is hard to do, but if you don't you end up getting in trouble," says Bodine.

The Road Wise show will air on channel six sometime in August.
