at the professional level and continues to develop his skills on and off the track. He currently drives #33 for RBR, Reaume Brothers Racing. Last year he made his debut with RBR and placed 17th. He improved in his second start to bring his ride home 10th at Michigan.
“This is a dream come true having the opportunity to make my debut in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at Gateway. When I got the call from my dad, I was overcome with emotion. Many years of hard work, along with the support of my family, friends, and fans have made this possible. And of course, I have to thank Reaume Brothers Racing for believing in me and giving me this incredible opportunity,” Armani said at the time.
Armani’s dream of winning the biggest races in NASCAR in the U.S. is well within his grasp.
Today Armani is 22 years old. His ability to race at a high level of competition has given him more strength and self-esteem than he would have been able to achieve by any other means.
It has also given him the confidence and perseverance of a champion, not only for the track, but for life. Armani is ready to take on both the racing world and the world at large as an inspiration to the autism community, to other young people with autism, and to those all around the country who will be inspired by the first-ever driver with autism.
The very nature of the disorder allows for the extreme focus that racing requires, and parents and caregivers of individuals with autism are always searching for new ways to uncover the untapped or hidden potential of those that they care about.
Armani lives with the motivation of, “Tell me I can’t, so that I can show you that I can.” Go Autism Nation!
