Great Day for our Families at “FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks”

Dover, Del. (June 1, 2014) — Dozens of families from our community got to partake in “Autism Speaks Day at The Races.”  It was a unique opportunity for those on the autism spectrum and their families to attend a NASCAR race in a sensory-friendly area in the grandstands of Dover International Speedway. Autism Speaks offered a pre-race program that morning for the families that included speakers such as Autism Speaks Vice President of Chapter Development Cathy Kanefsky, Delaware Senator Chris Coons, Lieutenant Governor Matt Denn, NASCAR driver Jamie McMurrary, Autism Speaks Vice President of Family Services Lisa Goring, NASCAR crew chief Trent Owens, Joe Gibbs and Richard Petty.

A special moment happened at the end of the program when it was announced to the families in attendance that all of them would be leaving with an autism-specific toy from Toys”R”Us thanks to FedEx!

We’d like to thank NASCAR, The NASCAR Foundation, FedEx, Toys”R”Us, Denny Hamlin and everyone else who made race weekend successful!
