1978/79 Jerry Weeks USAC Midget Car Race Worn Helmet
This Bell helmet was worn by USAC Midget and Sprint car driver Jerry Weeks. It would have been used during the late 70’s which was Jerry’s best period in racing where he had numerous wins in the Midget series.
This great vintage white Bell helmet has a hand painted red tear drop edged in yellow that surrounds the eye-port and has a ‘hot rod’ flame on its top point. There is also a red band edged in yellow running around the bottom. Week’s ‘JW’ initials are painted to either side of the helmet in blue and yellow. Bell decals are applied to the top front and bottom rear. The helmet shows heavy wear and still retains its 1970’s USAC tech sticker.
This helmet was part of the Ron Burton Collection
