2009 Bud Keading USAC Sprint/Midget Car Race Used Helmet
A great looking helmet used buy USAC Sprint and Midget car ace Bud Keading. He is a third-generation member of the incredibly successful Keading racing family. Father Brent and brother Tim are both multi champions. Bud has had a career in driving both non-wing and wing cars in Australia as well as in North America. He won over 60 races on Indiana and Californian tracks. He has also been crowned multi USAC champion and is a multi cup winner.
