Discovery Channel films in El Reno

A film crew from Pilgrim Studios was in El Reno over the weekend reportedly shooting a segment for the Discovery Channel on drag racing down old Route 66.

The crew filmed from 5 p.m. Sunday past midnight on a section of SH 66 near the El Reno Federal Correctional Institution. Classic drag racing cars were brought to the site for use by the crew.

No information on an air date for the segment was given, but one crew member said plans are in the works for more filming to be done in either March or April.
