There is only winning when you are racing to help the planet.

The blue marble, when held at arm’s length, represents how the earth looks from up in space – a fragile blue orb dependent upon the oceans to sustain life.
Yesterday at Daytona, Leilani Munter raced to help bring awareness about the oceans in general, and specifically the treatment of dolphins in Japan.
Even though the Cove’s car was plagued with mechanical problems, Leilani Munter got her message out at heart-stopping speed at yesterday’s  race. As her bright blue race car sped around the track at 180 – 200 miles per hour, viewers had time to reflect on this young woman’s vision, her sheer guts and determination, and finally, her plucky endurance.
