2000 Dale Earnhardt Sr Race Used NASCAR Helmet
This helmet was used by NASCAR’s greatest legend Dale Earnhardt Sr. He began his career in 1975. Regarded as one of the most significant drivers in NASCAR history, Earnhardt won a total of 76 Winston Cup races over the course of his career, He also earned seven NASCAR Winston Cup championships, His aggressive driving style earned him the nickname ‘’The Intimidator”. Unfortunately in 2001, Earnhardt was killed due to injuries sustained in a collision during the final lap of the Daytona 500, an event that was widely lamented through the whole of the racing industry. He was inducted into numerous racing halls of fame, including the NASCAR Hall of Fame in 2010.
This helmet was one used by Earnhardt during the 2000 NASCAR season while driving for Richard Childress Racing, a team he spent most of his career with. The all black peaked Simpson open-face ‘Cruiser’ type helmet comes still equipped with its microphone earpiece and audio cord attached. There are numerous sponsor stickers and decals on the helmet including: GM, Goodwrench, Berger King and Snap On. On the back there is a Winston Cup 7 Time Champion decal. The helmet shows race-wear and we would have been used for at least one or two races. It was acquired direct from the Bill Simpson Collection and comes with a full Certificate of Authenticity.
A very rare chance to own a race used helmet worn by perhaps the greatest stock car driver in NASCAR history.
