ABOUT Racing on the Spectrum

This documentary project, in early production, follows three extraordinary young racecar drivers through the twists and turns of coming of age with autism.

NASCAR driver Armani Williams, BRITCAR racer Bobby Trundley and two-time Radical Cup Champion Austin Riley believe that autism gives them special abilities to focus, process sensory information and make quick, safe 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 for neurodiversity.

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