Mooresville, North Carolina (March 29th, 2023) - Armani Williams will pilot the No. 46 Tundra TRD Pro at the Texas Motor Speedway this weekend.
“We are excited to have Armani (Williams) join us at Texas,” Tim Viens commented on the signing. “He has a very unique journey and story to tell through his racing and I am happy to have him drive for G2G Racing.”
Williams is a 21-year-old professional stock car driver that is the first professional driver in NASCAR openly diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). ASD refers to a disorder currently diagnosed through symptoms, which involve difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors. But he has worked to overcome all barriers to jump behind the wheel and make his dream become a reality.
He uses his racing career as a platform to draw awareness and acceptance to Autism, and create better life outcomes for families impacted by the disorder.
Racing across multiple series in the United States and Canada, Williams is no stranger to racing in NASCAR. He has competed in the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series, the NASCAR Pinty’s Series, and both the East and West divisions of the ARCA Menards Series.
His best finish in truck competition came in 2021, finishing 21st at Worldwide Technologies Raceway, after starting dead last in the field. He also was knocking on the door for Top-10s in the Pinty’s Series in 2017.
Williams has also been a member of NASCAR’s Drive for Diversity program, which helped vault his racing career to the next level.
