1996 Ricky Gaunt USAC CRA Sprint Car Race Used Helmet
Simpson helmet worn by USAC CRA Sprint Car driver Rickie Gaunt. He had a rousing career with 21 CRA main event wins, including the Oval Nationals, a Firecracker 50 and much more. Known around the California racing scene as a big time prankster, Rickie took things very seriously once behind the wheel. He retired from open wheel racing in 2015 to concentrate on off-road racing.
This helmet comes from the famous Ron Burton Collection. The helmet is one of 170 helmets which were on display at the famous Union Jack Pub in Speedway (Indianapolis) Indiana. Ron Burton is a famous artist who often traded his paintings with drivers for one of their helmets. We are proud to offer this unique collection of many one-of-a-kind helmets and artwork.
The helmet comes with a Certificate Of Authenticity.
