INDYCAR Flagger Racing To Increase Autism Awareness

When Aaron Likens was 20 years old, he assumed he would never have a job, never have friends and never be happy. Likens is from Indianapolis but moved to St. Louis when he was a kid. That set Likens on a path to wanting to be a flagger for his career. Even Likens’ doctor who read the assessment didn’t even understand what it meant. “The race to spread as much awareness and understanding as possible, because there’s so much hope out there for all people on the autism spectrum.”. With more people being diagnosed with autism, Likens believes its vital to continue to raise awareness and help the world understand people with this disorder. “I think we’re at a point now where people are aware of autism. It’s World Autism Awareness Day, but we’re transitioning to World Autism Understanding Day.
