1970’s Scott Brayton Early Career Race Helmet
This vintage race helmet was used by American driver Scott Brayton. It was used by Brayton, very early in his career and is likely to have seen action around many of the junior karting tracks in the midwest. Brayton went on to have a fifteen-year career in the CART IndyCar series. He also competed in fourteen Indianapolis 500s, beginning with the 1981 event. Sadly Brayton was killed in practice after qualifying for the pole position for the 1996 race.
The helmet has an all yellow base color and has period looking 70s hand-painted red pin-stripe curved line design around the helmet. On its back, there is a star design, again in red pin-striping. Brayton’s name is to top either side in a thick black font.
This is an amazing early piece of history, of the very popular late driver.
