The Autism MX Project (AMX) is a nonprofit 501(C)(3) organization based in Temecula, California that raises autism awareness through professional and local MX racers and provides children with autism and their families a protected environment to experience motocross.[1] Founded in 2010 by lifelong motocross enthuasiast Mathew Dalton, the father of an autistic son, the project began with the 501 sponsorship from the Temecula-based Our Nicholas Foundation.[2] Southern Californian children with autism may attend day camps at MX tracks where small 50cc dirt bikes and 50cc quads are provided for their supervised use.[1][2] The group is expanding its day camps through other areas, with chapters added in Michigan, Missouri and Kansas.[citation needed]

They raise awareness through the dozens of racers participating in Team Autism MX, who display the autism awareness puzzle logo.
