1990’s Cary Faas USAC Sprint Car Helmet
A helmet used by USAC Sprint Car driver Cary Faas. Faas raced bikes and was a regular on the west coast speedway racing scene. He moved up to sprint cars in the mid 80’s. He raced midgets in the California Racing Association and USAC 410 sprint cars, as well as Silver Crown cars from the 1980’s up until 2005. Having quit racing to open up a motor cycle parts company, Faas now resides in Arizona. This well used Simpson Bandit helmet would have been used by Faas sometime during the early 90’s USAC seasons. It sports the painted colors of Faas’s main sponsor at the time, Valvoline Oils. The blue base color has the companies iconic red, white and blue bands running around its top. Valvoline brand lettering is to the top front and on both sides, as well as Faas’s name which is also on both sides of the helmet.
