CENTRAL GLENDALE — Rubyn Nevarez had been excited for weeks about going racing.
In his first year at Tobinworld, a nonprofit school for special needs and autistic children, Rubyn, 10, helped his class make a cardboard car body for the school’s annual Grand Prix competition.
“He was so excited about me coming,” said his mother Tawyna Nevarez, who came to watch the event on Friday.
Rubyn was one of several dozen students of all ages who ran around an outdoor track at the school’s Broadway Boulevard campus. The students donning a variety of eclectic cardboard vehicles ranging from race cars to food trucks.
