1978/79 Jerry Weeks USAC Midget Car Race Worn Helmet
This Bell helmet was worm by USAC Midget and Sprint car driver Jerry Weeks. It would have been used during the late 1970’s which was Jerry’s best period in racing where he had numerous wins in the Midget series.
This great vintage white Bell has a hand painted red edged in yellow tear drop design that surrounds the eye-port and has a ‘hot rod’ flame on its top point. There is also a red edged in yellow band 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
