Eco-friendly and extremely sidepod-worthy racing hotty Leilani Münter continued her quest for sponsorship Monday by scoring a guest poster gig on the huge-traffic Huffington Post.
The HP is one of the über-blogs, attracting something like a billion hits a day.
Leilani (get her in a car, dammit!) represents on her somewhat bi-polar passions of racing and saving the planet. An excerpt:
There are, wrap your mind around this... 100 million race fans in the United States. So this little tree-hugging race car driver got to thinking, what if I were to start a dialogue with these fans? I started to talk about eco issues on my website several years ago, and I was told by many people in the racing world that I was making a big mistake. They said that as a driver I needed to shut up, drive the car and plug my sponsors. Marketing people warned me that by talking about political and environmental issues I would isolate myself from possible sponsors who would shy away from my "weird, greenie, vegetarian hippie chick image." (Excuse me; what did you just call me?)
