Racing on the Spectrum


ABOUT Racing on the Spectrum

This feature documentary follows three extraordinary race car drivers on the autism spectrum through life’s twists and turns.

NASCAR driver Armani Williams, BRITCAR racer Bobby Trundley and North America Radical Cup Champion Austin Riley believe that autism gives them special abilities to focus, take in rapid-fire sensory information and make decisions at breakneck speeds. But it takes all their determination to meet the intense demands of the competitive racing world — along with the challenges of entering adulthood with autism. The racers seek to defy expectations off the circuit, too, as they pursue relationships and independence, and step into a leadership role alongside other prominent advocates who celebrate neurodiversity.

Through partnership with these courageous athletes, their teams, and an esteemed advisory group of neuroscientists and advocates, the Racing on the Spectrum documentary will be the centerpiece of a robust audience-engagement campaign to raise acceptance of autism, and create opportunity for everyone in our neurodiverse communities to realize their full potential.
