Throughout his career, 19-year-old race car driver Devin O'Connell has broken through barriers. Diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome as a child, O'Connell has championed the cause of autism awareness while winning several racing titles.

During two races in Connecticut in October, O'Connell's skill as a driver and the boundary-breaking technology involved in video-over-IP transmission will be showcased live online. O'Connell's stock car will be outfitted with a TVU One mobile IP streaming newsgathering transmitter from TVU Networks, which enables high-quality video transmission from virtually anywhere, including a car racing at speeds of 185 mph or more. O'Connell will live stream all of the action from his race car's cockpit directly to Facebook Live using the TVU One transmitter.

We are happy to support Devin's efforts to give racing fans the opportunity to see what racing is like from his vantage point—whether they're tuning in to his Facebook Live from the stands at the race or from their living room couch across the country."

O'Connell adds, "I'm super excited to bring this technology into short track racing. I believe it will showcase racing in a positive way and bring new fans into the sport."
