Devino's 'NASCAR Dream' Come True

This blog was written by Emily Finer, the mother of Devino, a 10-year-old boy diagnosed with less severe autism. Emily says about Devino, "he loves NASCAR. He watches recorded races over and over. He uses the internet to learn more about NASCAR.  He memorizes statistics and hangs on every word the commentators say, especially Darrell Waltrip. His dream in life was to meet Darrell Waltrip (DW). He hopes to be a commentator for NASCAR when he grows up like DW." 

Autism Speaks and NASCAR Foundation Track Walk

Today was an amazing day at Dover International Speedway! Despite the heat, hundreds of families and fans turned out to support Autism Speaks in the Autism Speaks and NASCAR Foundation Track Walk. The Monster Mile was overwhelmed with families enjoying the experience of being right where the cars speed by! Sprint Cup Series winner Brad Keselowski came out to take questions from fans before the walk. This marks the third year that FedEx, Dover and Autism Speaks have teamed up to offer families affected by autism this amazing opportunity for fun at the races.
