Last year racecar driver Leilani Munter drove a car promoting the documentary The Cove in an ARCA series race at Daytona. This year she'll be driving to promote plant-based diets. The VegNation car will run in a nationally televised ARCA race this year with the track location TBD once funding for the race pulls together.

 

Announcement here.

 

 

Quote:
Environmental activist and race car driver Leilani Münter has partnered with 1% for the Planet, VegNews Magazine, and Wildlife Works to get a "VegNation" race car on the track, encouraging millions of race fans to adopt a more plant-based diet.
 
While most people associate their carbon footprint with their car, the United Nations found that more greenhouse gas emissions come from animal agriculture than from all the world's planes, trains, ships, cars and trucks combined. The goal of the VegNation race car is to show America that a plant based diet is a win-win for human health, animals, and our planet.
 
Leilani is actively seeking partners who support the ideas behind a more plant based diet in the food and beverage industry, environmental organizations, animal advocacy groups and health education organizations - to join them in this historic VegNation awareness campaign. Once fully-funded, Leilani will drive the car in a major 2013 ARCA race to be televised on SPEED Channel, available in 80 million North American homes.
 
"By adopting a more plant-based diet, we can each help curb climate change while also doing something good for our health, for animals, and for our taste buds," said Leilani. "With more meat-free meals than ever being eaten today, we're on the right track toward a more sustainable diet."
