NASCAR Supports Autism Awareness
NASCAR is getting involved with autism awareness. The FedEx 400 race last weekend benefited Autism Speaks. The racing sports commitment to raising autism awareness is proven through a partnership between NASCAR and Autism Speaks. Driver Lorri Unumb is the founder of the Autism Academy of South Carolina and recipient of the 2012 Betty Jane France Humanitarian Award. Unumb also received a $100,000 charitable donation from NASCAR.
