Make sure you get a helmet good for many years. They have expiration dates.

I wanted an open face, and they are a bit harder to find with the Snell SA2015 certification. I got this one from Summit Racing:

https://www.summitracing.com/parts/zsc-h75003fxl

Since I'm tall (and have a big head) it is a bit larger than the older helmet I was wearing, the helmet does touch the headliner. It's just something to get used to.

You should be able to find a good one for about $120-$150. Look at a few different websites for sizes that will fit, all manufactures will give measurements. Because a Medium is not the same size across all manufactures. Look for one that is Snell 2017 (2015 minimum). And no, a motorcycle helmet is not the same. Summit Racing, Jegs, Bell Racing, and even eBay are great places to look around.

Texas, like Indianapolis here, probably has a few local shops that you could try some on and see what is comfortable.

I don't think there is a Snell SA 2017 rating...they issue the ratings in periods of 5 years. And most tracks, including NCM/Beech Bend will accept an SA2010 helmet. But it would be best to buy a 2015 helmet so you can use it for the next 7+ years.

I agree I'm pretty sure that it's every five years they re-rate the helmets

I booked Hotel Sync for $105 a night, has anyone ever stayed at the Hotel sync? Rooms look really nice for the price. Also are any of you planning to attend the F-body Nationals in Memphis TN? My wife and I took our Camaros last year and had a blast.
