Star Wars creator George Lucas had a smashing time at the Toyota Pro-Celebrity Race in Long Beach, California, on Saturday when he collided with CSI: Miami star Emily Procter.

Procter's car slammed into the front of Lucas' during the pre-Long Beach Grand Prix festivities, pinning the movie mogul against a wall.

Lucas was subdued after the race, telling reporters, "I should have just let her go by me."

X-Men star Kelly Hu, who watched the crash from the car behind, said, "George passed me right before he crashed. It was a little hairy."

Hu felt the celebrity race was a little too "aggressive," adding, "I got schooled." Hu had crashed in a qualifying session.

Other celebrities involved in the race included soap star Joshua Morrow and former tennis star Martina Navratilova. BMX champion Dave Mirra won the race.

Playboy founder Hugh Hefner served as the celebrity challenge's Grand Marshal.
