ITEM OF THE WEEK 2010 Danica Patrick Signed Charlotte/Texas/Homestead Used JR Motorsports Bell Nascar Helmet
Race-used Bell helmet worn by Danica Patrick while driving for JR Motorsports during the later end of 2010 Nationwide Series Season. The helmet has been photomatched to at least 3 races, Texas, Homestead and Charlotte.
Patrick began her stock car racing career by entering an ARCA Racing Series race in the No. 7 JR Motorsports Chevrolet at Daytona International Speedway. She finished in sixth place after spinning early in the race. The season was notable for the season-opening race, the 2010 Lucas Oil Slick Mist 200 at Daytona, which had the largest audience of any ARCA event in the history of the series with 2.4 million viewers tuning in on the Speed Channel. The high viewership was due to the fact that Danica Patrick was competing in the event, which was her first stock car start as part of her move from the IndyCar Series to NASCAR. Patrick continued racing in the NASCAR Nationwide Series (now Xfinity Series) in 2010, with her best result coming the following year in the form of a fourth-place finish at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in 2011.
She is also the most successful woman in the history of American open-wheel car racing—her victory in the 2008 Indy Japan 300 is the only win by a woman in an IndyCar Series race.
The helmet is signed by Danica Patrick and comes with a Certificate Of Authenticity.
