THANKS.. exactly what I was looking for... and just wanted to make sure everyone is prepared...

They were not strict at all in GA, I was running high 12's w/ no helmet or jacket, but my guess is it will be by the book in AZ.

A lot of folks will have helmets but Jackets may be missed... Here's a link to a good one..

OK. But I'm talking about the Pfadt track day. They said, as long as it's Dot approved. Seriously, I just want someone to answer me, so I can send this back if it's the wrong one.

Depends on who they is... Pretty sure the answer will need to come from Firebird.

Why buy it if you know it won't be good everywhere.
SFI 31.2/2005 is another rating tech looks for on the inside of the helmet.

Because Blair at Pfadt was the one that said a DOT approved helmet was ok. I wasn't aware of the other 1/4 mile rules. If that's the case, them I'm returning my helmet and getting my refunf for the Pfadt track day, I am not spending $100 + on a helmet that I will only use occassionally.

The track is SCCA certified so the rules should be:

Snell – SA2005, M2005, K2005, SA2000, M2000, K98, SA95, M95
SFI – 31.1A, 31.2A, 41.1A, 41.2A
BSI – BS6658-85 type A/FR

Here's the general rules that most tracks use. These are from the 2011 NHRA rule book.

I was warned to get a racing jacket that is SFI 3.2A/1 rated. I found one online for $80 at OG racing. You may need one of these if you are running forced induction. Some tracks may let you slide, it's better to be safe than sorry. I will lend my jacket to anyone at the fest in a jam at the fest, just look me up.

So, that means I'm going to return my helmet and get my refund.
I wish someone would have said something, when I posted the helmet that I was getting. Kinda ticks me off.

Hey Milk 1027 before you give up. I was told on the phone by Pfadt that if you didn't have a helmet that you could most likly rent one at the track. I think that the racing school there will rent you one for a day or two. you should call them and see what they would charge.

The thing is, I'm bringing two cars. I'm already on the fence on whether I should just leave my car at home. This put me over.

I just bought a open face Race Quip SA 2005 helmet on closeout for $130 shipped from DougHerbert.com.

I have a full face helmet too, but for the AutoCross, gonna try the open face this time.

Yeah that's way out of my price range... I'll be trolling Craigslist for sure

Whereabouts in SFV are you man? I grew up in Granada Hills

It is just a DOT approved helmet you need right? The regular helmet I have is DOT approved Bell helmet with no face mask (I think they call it a 3/4 helmet where it covers the ears and head but not the face).

Pretty slack tech in Georgia. I packed my helmet all the way to Orlando on the plane and didn't need it. Matter of fact I walked right up to the Avis rental counter with my helmet bag.

Actually it should be a SNELL 2005 for NHRA Tech.

You might want to read the earlier posts, Firebird Raceway required helmets that are SA 2005 helmets or newer(checked them during tech inspection) for the drag racing when we were there for Super Chevy, NHRA rules, so you're DOT helmet won't meet it for Drag Racing and probably not for Autocross either. They did have helmets to borrow for the Autocross when we were last there.
