1980’s George Snider Race Used USAC Sprint Car Helmet
George Snider A long-time driver in the United States Automobile Club Silver Crown series, Snider also made twenty-two starts at the Indianapolis 500 and has the record of the most starts without winning the race. He is a very good friend A. J. Foyt and drove for him many times. Snider is known to many fans by his nickname “Ziggy”.
He was the 1971 USAC Silver Crown Champion and the 1981-1982 USAC Champ Car champion, the last “big car” championship to include pavement races other than the Indy 500. Snider has since retired from active driving and is currently a partner in ownership of sprint car teams in California.
This great Bell open face helmet has been well documented (photo-matched) as being used around the late 70’s early 80’s in many Sprint car races. The white pearl paint shows heavy use it has a red metallic visor peak and has extra securing tape applied around the helmet and over the peaks studs. It still retains its original USAC tech sticker. The helmet also comes with Snider’s race used goggles, bandana and race worn golf gloves. This is a great opportunity to own this set race used by a dirt track legend.
