The Doug Flutie Foundation For Autism To Sponsor Armani Williams

MOORESVILLE, N.C. — Armani Williams, the first NASCAR Truck Series driver openly diagnosed on the autism spectrum will return to competition in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway.

Piloting the Reaume Brothers Racing No. 83, Williams will attempt to qualify for Friday night’s SpeedyCash.com 220.

Williams impressed in his series debut at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway last August, finishing a respectable 21st and earning his speedway license in NASCAR competition.

“I’m incredibly grateful for this next chapter in my NASCAR career by making my Truck Series debut at Texas Motor Speedway this weekend,” said Williams. “We have been diligently working hard on sponsorship to run as many Truck Series races as we can this season and I’m thrilled to have a few races locked down with some terrific partners.”

To kick off his limited NASCAR Camping World Truck Series schedule in 2022 in the Lone Star state, Williams will be joined by co-partners The Doug Flutie Foundation for Autism Inc and IceCOLD Technology. 

Former NFL Quarterback, Doug Flutie, and his wife Laurie started The Doug Flutie Foundation for Autism Inc. in 1998 after their son, Dougie, was diagnosed with autism at the age of three. Their personal experience of raising a son on the autism spectrum inspired them to help others on an equally long and challenging journey.

Over its 24-year history, the Flutie Foundation has distributed over $15 million to schools and organizations who provide clinical therapies, respite services, recreational programs, social skills training, job support and more for people affected by autism.

“We are pleased to partner with Armani Williams to support his career goals and passions through the Flutie Fellow ambassadorship program as he competes professionally in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series,” said Doug Flutie.

“It’s our goal at the Flutie Foundation to create a world where people with autism are included, respected, and engaged in their communities. Armani is living proof of what people with autism can accomplish.

“We are ecstatic to support Armani’s budding career dreams while partnering with him as he advocates for inclusive opportunities for his peers with autism.”
