IN THE NEWS
A slideshow with music by Jack Johnson, this is the story of Leilani Münter: a biology graduate, race car driver and environmental leader. Named "#1 Eco Athlete in the World" by Discovery, Leilani uses her voice as a driver to raise awareness. If we only talk to people who already believe in the same things we do, who is going to change the minds of those who don't?
(Jan 31, 2015) Leilani is racing the #66 Energy Freedom Venturini Motorsports entry at Daytona on Feb 14, 2015. She is seeking like-minded and eco-conscious partners to continue racing during the 2015 season. Leilani can get your message out to new audiences because of her unique journey as a woman and an environmentalist in a sport that sees very little of both.
(Sept 16, 2014) Fusion (a joint venture between Univision and ABC News) highlights Leilani's work to promote clean energy, solar power, her electric road trip to the racetrack in her Tesla, and her work with The Solutions Project. With interviews with leaders in clean energy finance, business, and advocacy, this video tells the story of one woman who is changing the world.
"Leilani Münter is a powerhouse - she is one of our own generation's Davids, a modern day Goliath killer."
Leilani Münter has the potential to become one of the top drivers in the next generation of racing stars. She's not intimidated. She's not a good 'woman' driver. She's just a good driver."
- Veteran NASCAR driver/owner Andy Hillenburg
