ARCA Racing Series driver Leilani Munter and her 'Blackfish' car are heading to Talladega Superspeedway, thanks to 'The Simpsons' co-creator Sam Simon.

Munter, a biology graduate turned race car driver and environmental activist, had been seeking donations to help raise the $115,000 entry fee for the May 3rd ARCA race. After appearing as a guest on his radio show, Simon - also a noted animal activist - picked up the rest of the tab.

Munter is looking to raise awarness for the documentary 'Blackfish', a film that focuses on a killer whale held in captivity.  

She thanked Simon on her Facebook page. 

You can see the 'Blackfish' car in action next month. FOX Sports 1 will have live coverage of the ARCA race from Talladega (May 3 at 11 a.m. ET).
