Teens receive safe driving lesson from Indy 500 driver

SILVERTON, OH (FOX19) - Some local teens received a lesson in safe driving from an Indy 500 driver on Saturday.

"We want them to understand that the race car driver, even though we love speed, we understand the risk better than anybody else because we've been in very risky situations on the race track, but we also understand that being on the road is actually more dangerous than being on the race track," said Stephan Gregoire, Indy 500 driver.

Teens tried to navigate through a distracted driving course at Cincinnati Mini in Silverton. The event was open to the public and the admission was free.
