Setting up for that picture-- from dash cam:
Go Leilani Go! Win promoting a sustainable future.
I met so many amazing people on the #EVolutionHighway, thanks so much to those of you who joined me at the superchargers! It made my trip so much fun!
We made history in two ways this weekend: I became the first driver to get to a race oil free AND we made history by becoming the first ARCA or NASCAR team to power their pit box with 100% solar power. The 1 kW system from ZeroBase Energy stored enough energy to power my pit box for 5 hours after my race ended, it's the same system used on the front lines by the US Military:
The racetrack asked me to park my Tesla in front of the media center so all the journalists would see it walking in to the media center:
My Model S was a big hit after the driver autograph session:
I finished 12th on the lead lap on my first 1.5 mile speedway race in four years. ABC News, CBS News, Fox News, and USA Today all picked up the story:
USA Today: Ruffalo brings energy message to NASCAR crowd
The Weather Channel and Univision will both be airing stories about our renewable energy message, my electric road trip and solar power at Chicagoland in the next month - we are happy with a successful weekend!
Thanks @newscutter for the tip about the detour to Flight 93 memorial and the wind farm:
Thank you to everyone who came to greet me at the superchargers, it made the trip so much fun. I'll never forget it.
Congratulations on your trip and race! Nice news coverage as well.
Had it custom made! Sorry I can't remember which company I used, but there are lots of custom license plate holder makers out there. You can write whatever you want. My sister made one as well, the top part of her plate holder says "TESLA" and the lower part uses my email signature "For the earth..."
Great work, Leilani. You make it look easy - and once things are in place, it really is and I hope you get a lot of imitators. But to be the first person finding appropriate solutions, getting them set up, and getting attention on them is a lot of work. Thank you for stepping up.
Thanks for the kind words @ChadS @bollar @William13 Just found this shot of me sneaking in a plug for my favorite car company at Chicagoland Speedway
Keep going Leilani! We are proud of you!
Supermodel? , no, superacer? no Super EVenthusiast...
(in the dash video- why are you all parking facing forward into back in SC's? photos?)
Great pics! Thanks for sharing!
How do I get a picture with miss #66?
Does AJ Allmendinger still race with a super narrow steering wheel for his baby hands?
I used race shifter karts with him 10 to 15 years ago. Amazing driver and guy.
Congrats on the trip and good luck the rest of the season!
