The Snell 2000 series helmets expired January 1, 2012 and are no longer permitted for use. This is stated for reference in the chart: NHRA Helmet Expiration Dates found on page 41 of Section 20 (General Regulations) of the 2012 NHRA Rulebook. Multiple places throughout the 2012 NHRA Rulebook the Snell SA2000 and Snell M2000 helmets are referenced. These references will be removed from the online rulebook when it is updated in the Spring of 2012. Again, as documented on page 41 of Section 20: General Regulations the Snell SA2000 and M2000 have expired and are prohibited from use.

I need to buy one also. I used to just borrow my friends helmet but he cracked it a few months ago.

I take it we need a SA version and not just the M version for the track?

I need a helmet too. I remember the inspection guy at E-town said they sell cheap ones there. Not sure on brand.

Correct, the SA has the fire retardant liner. M is the motorcycle helmet.

No problem. I bought a Simpson Bandit a couple years ago, I love it.

Check eBay...you can get a Bell Vortex that is a Snell2010 for $119. There aren't a lot of choices, but its a good, cheap helmet that will last you for a little while.
Most of them are $180, but if you don't care about the design, you can get one for $99.00 to $119.
