Eyewitness News Anchor Renee Passal got a chance to race some big local names in the Proctor Speedway Celebrity School Bus Race Saturday. 

Renee drove a purple bus with no speedometer in the fundraiser challenge. She got to lead off the race until Proctor mayor Dave Brenna knocked her and her bus named Barney out of the lead. 

After getting stuck on the track once, Renee came in fourth out of the six racers. Hermantown's superintendent Brad Johnson won the race.
