Thread: Helmet Question in NJ

    Question Helmet Question in NJ

    The last time I raced in NJ was 2004 Englistown and I recall every driver had to wear a helmet - no matter how slow they were. I was in a stock 5.4 F150 running 15's and I think it was a state law or track rule.

    Can someone confirm if at Atco helmets are a requirement for all participants - no matter what their ET's are?

    Thanks,

    Chris,

    I am sure some of our good friends in Jersey will chime in. We have all seen the "renta-helmet" booth at Atco.

    Isn't BIG Government wonderful?
