Pediatrician, Critical Care 's  Response
It seems like vertigo or fainting episodes. Epidose during spinning can be explained. However, with two more episodes later in car and at home -- he needs to see a doctor. There are multiple reasons for this and once he has been checked over by Pediatrician, he will be able to guide further in terms of the cause.
