    Thumbs up Great Buy on Helmets!

    Snell 90 rated helmets are NO LONGER legal to use in 2006 at any NHRA or IHRA track. Only Snell95 or later are good for 2006, and ONLY Snell2000 or later, are good for the 2007 race season!

    Therefore we have worked a deal for those that need new helmets this year.


    This is the deal with With Apex Performance:

    Our discount helmet price (SA2005 only) includes a free helmet bag and shipping:

    The promo code is NLOC-10-2006. Valid for 10% off for purchases of $150 or more on all products EXCEPT ATE brake fluid, G-force products & gift certificates. This discount is valid through 31 December 2006.

    To be a legal helmet, somewhere on the inside there will be one of the tags shown below. The SA is fire retardant, where the M is not. Some tracks do not check for the labels...it varies from track to track.

    SA= For Use in Competitive Automotive Sports

    The SA95 is good only through 2006


    The SA2000 is good through 2011


    The SA2005 is good through 2016




    M=For Use in Motorcycling and Other Motorsports

    The M95 is good only through 2006


    The M2000 is good through 2011


    The M2000 is good through 2016

    This is the typical rule of thumb.


    Helmet: SN 90 or newer or SFI 31.1, 31.2, 41.1 or 41.2 mandatory for all drivers running 13.99 or quicker in the ¼ or 8.59 or quicker 1/8 mile. Drivers of open bodied, supercharged front-engine cars must use a helmet meeting SN 90 or newer or SFI 31.1 or 31.2 specs. Drivers of any open bodied cars wearing an “open face” helmet must wear protective goggles.
    If it's not BLOWN it must suck.

    Yes, unless she is running Pro Truck or faster than 11.50, we let Snell M2000 and up run at LightningFest 5 (2007).
