Professional driver Leilani Munter is spearheading an effort to raise $115,000 to drive a custom-designed "Blackfish" car at Talladega Speedway.

According to TMZ, Munter was so moved by the acclaimed documentary, which details the plight of killer whales in captivity, that she wants to do everything she can to help raise awareness.

"I believe that it is a crime for these magnificent, intelligent, and socially complex creatures to be forced to live in tiny concrete tanks," she told TMZ.

In order to do this, Munter is gunning to get behind the wheel of a custom "Blackfish" car to race at an ARCA event on May 3. An estimated $115,000 is needed to make the whole thing a reality.
