    So I understand you need a helmet to do any drag racing, road course tracks, etc.....anyone have a good place to buy the correct helmets? I don't want to find one on a website and learn that it isn't rated correctly.

    Also bonus points if it's a cool place where I can customize the helmet to look like the Steelers helmet!!!!

    On some of our tracks they have to be Snell rated.

    Would a motorcycle helmet qualify?

    For SCCA, Snell rated and no earlier date than 2005 on the helmet tag.

    If you wait until December/Jan the new Snell 2015's will come out they said and those will be good through 2026 instead of 2021 that the Snell 2010's are now.(five year increments on Snell ratings)
    And a Dallas star would look sooooo much better:p:p

    NO!

    Different Snell rating. Not worth taking the chance of not being able to go. I've only had my helmet checked once, but......

    I just picked up a Zamp RZ-55 from Summit Racing online. Snell SA2010 certified and a really good price with free shipping.

    Bumping this back up as I just signed up for a Half Mile Event on the 17th of this month and need a helmet. I will also be doing AutoCross and possibly some 1/4 mile racing so I need a helmet that works for all events. Any good options out there under $200?
