Leilani Munter brings star power to Talladega Superspeedway
The animal rights activist brought in stars such as The Simpsons co-creater Sam Simon, as well as actresses Pamela Anderson and Jennifer Tilly to help promote her "Blackfish" car in Saturday's ARCA Series race at Talladega Superspeedway.

Leilani Munter didn't win Saturday's International Motorsports Hall of Fame 200 ARCA race at Talladega Superspeedway -- she finished a respectable 14th-- but she might have had the best-looking car and she definitely had an all-star support cast.
Munter's car was sponsored by the film "Blackfish," or more correctly by The Simpsons co-creator Sam Simon, who ponied up $107,000 for sponsorship.
Simon, an animal rights activist, is terminally ill, but he was on hand for Saturday's race to lend his support.
Also joining Munter were fellow animal-rights activists Pamela Anderson, the former "Baywatch" star and ex-wife of Motley Crue's Tommy Lee, and actress Jennifer Tilly.
