They did have helmets to borrow for the Autocross when we were last there.
Both my helmets are Snell M2005 which according to the NHRA rule book should be good. I participate at my home track in the NHRA Street Legal program and a M 2005 is good. I have no intention of buying another helmet just for C5F II. Perhaps I should bring an NHRA rule book with me.

10. Helmets: Drivers of all vehicles running 13.99 or quicker, and ALL convertibles regardless of E.T., must wear an SFI-approved helmet with a Snell rating of 2000 or newer. Passengers in convertibles running 14.00 and slower must also wear an approved helmet. (Note: DOT-only helmets are not permitted. SFI-approved helmets are not permitted if the Snell label inside the helmet is missing or illegible. In other words, a Snell-rating on the outside of the helmet is not good enough.)

As of February 1, 2006 all vehicles with an aftermarket power adder, (nitrous, turbocharger, or supercharger) running faster than 13.99 will be required to wear an SFI approved fire jacket

I did notice the web page was not updated since like 2007 and the nhra rule and the scca rule is a 10 year limit on rating so I am betting it will be a snell 2005 or 2010 rating to qualify.

Correct. That's the way I read it and the NHRA track that I run Pumpkin at enforces it that way. I posted a pic of the Snell rating sticker some place in previous posts. I'll take another pic and posted it soon.

Here it is. Now mine is Snell 2005, but 2000 is still good. So SA, MA and M 2000 - 2005 are all good. Snell sticker must still be attached to the inside of the helmet as pictured.
