No, this isn’t Danica Patrick, this is Leilani Muntler, a 33 year old American Race car driver that has driven in the Firestone Indy Lights Series. Muntler has experienced moderate success at the lights level, and moderate success in minor league NASCAR. Muntler talent level is relevantly unknown within the open wheel ranks, as she has little to show in her lights career. She started 5th in the 2007 race at Kentucky Speedway and worked her way up to the top five before being collected in a multiple car crash.

Muntler will return to the Indy Lights Series this weekend at Homestead under the 3G Race Team umbrella. 3G has struggled throughout the entire year with their IndyCar Series program, they haven't been particpants in the Indy Lights Series. This will be Muntlers first race of the 2009 season in the Indy Lights Series. The race will be televised live on Versus at 4:30 p.m. following the IndyCar Series qualifications.

Just think if Danica goes to NASCAR, Muntler can fill in for her in the IndyCar Series. One American for another.
