NASCAR & autism

While I have no article to share tonight, I just thought I’d share a story about my son and I and NASCAR. Like many kids with autism, race cars seem to be a common interest and so for the second year in a row, my son and I went to the Camping World Truck Series Drivin’ For Linemen 200 over at Gateway Motorsports Park.

Unfortunately this year it rain and so we couldn’t stay for most of the rain as my mom was watching his siblings. However, I was very proud of him when he said to me several times, it’s okay if we leave dad. When he was younger, he never would have said that.

I’m thinking about rewarding him with a Xfinity race up in Iowa when we’re on vacation. It turns out my cousin and her husband are big race fans. Stay tune.
