Auto Racing Helmet Ratings

Auto racing helmets are rated by the Snell Foundation as either SA, M, or K rated.

Snell SA Rated Helmets:

Snell “SA” (Sports Application) rated professional helmets are designed for auto racing and provide extreme impact resistance and higher fire protection.

Snell M Rated Helmets:

Snell “M” (Motorcycle) rated helmets are designed for motorcycling and other motorsports. They offer slightly less protection than SA rated helmets.

Snell K Rated Helmets:

Snell “K” (Karting) rated helmets are designed for Karting applications. They are subjected to the same test standards as SA helmets except the do not require a fire retardant interior.

What are the key differences between SA and M Rated Helmets:

– SA standard requires flammability test while the M standard does not.

– SA standard has rollbar impact test while M standard does not.

– SA standard allows narrower visual field than M standard (Some SA helmets aren’t street legal).

How do I know if my helmet meets the necessary Snell requirements for the organizations that I race with?

Also, if you are considering the purchase of a Snell “M” rated helmet, be sure that your club will allow them. SCCA Solo does allow Snell “M” rated helmets, although some organizations that run high speed events will require Snell “SA” rated helmets. We recommend Snell “SA” rated helmets because they will be legal for any type automotive activity you participate in.

Federated Auto Parts And Ken Schrader Racing Announce 2015 Schedule

(CONCORD, N.C. March 12, 2015) Federated Auto Parts and Ken Schrader Racing have teamed up for 2015. This season marks the 16th year that Federated Auto Parts has served as the primary sponsor for Schrader s dirt and ARCA cars. Schrader will continue to compete in both his dirt modified and in select ARCA races throughout the season.

We are looking forward to another exciting season as the sponsor of Kenny and his racing teams, said J.R. Bishop, director of motorsports and event marketing for Federated. Kenny has become synonymous with Federated. He is very popular with our members and their customers, and he does a tremendous job representing Federated across the country, whether at the Federated 400, an ARCA race or a local dirt track event.

Schrader will handle driving duties for his team in seven ARCA races, including two title-sponsorship races at the Salem (Ind.) Speedway, the Federated Auto Parts ARCA 200 on April 26 and the Federated Car Care ARCA Fall Classic on Sept. 19. He will also drive at Toledo Speedway, Winchester Speedway, Lucas Oil Raceway, Illinois State Fairgrounds and DuQuoin State Fairgrounds.

In addition, the team s drivers will include Matt Tifft, Clay Campbell, and Ross Kenseth.

Tifft, an Ohio native who attends the University of North Carolina At Charlotte, will be making his return to KSR, Inc. at the March 14 ARCA race at Mobile (Ala.) International Speedway. Tifft will also drive the Federated entry in ARCA competition at the Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville, New Jersey Motorsports Park, Pocono Raceway, Iowa Speedway, Berlin Raceway, Kentucky Speedway, and Kansas Speedway.

We are pleased with Matt s return to the Federated car, said team owner Ken Schrader. He is a talented young driver and has proven race after race that he has what it takes to run up front and make key decisions while behind the wheel.

I am excited to be back in the Federated car this season, Tifft said. Last year, I learned a great deal about the tracks we visited and I m looking forward to returning to those places with the Schrader team to capitalize on that knowledge. We had a number of great finishes in 2014 and I hope to better those this year!

Martinsville Speedway President Clay Campbell is scheduled to race with Ken Schrader Racing, Inc. in the No. 52 Federated Chevy at Talladega Superspeedway on May 1. Campbell is making his second appearance at Talladega for the Federated team.

I m really looking forward to going to Talladega. We had a really strong car there last year but weren t around at the end to show it, Campbell said. Obviously we are excited to be going with the same car we had a Daytona which was really fast but again, we had issues that kept us from being there at the end. I can think of nothing better than for our Federated Auto Parts Team to go to victory lane at Talladega!

Ross Kenseth will drive at Michigan International Speedway and Chicagoland Speedway for the team. In 2013, Kenseth made his ARCA debut in a Ken Schrader Racing car at Madison (Wis.) International Speedway, winning the pole and leading 51 laps before finishing sixth.

With the drivers we have on board for this season, it looks as though we will have some exciting finishes and experience some great racing within the ARCA ranks, Schrader said. I m looking forward to working with Matt, Clay, and Ross.

Federated will also sponsor Schrader in more than 50 dirt track races in the coming season and will host hospitality events for its members and customers at several of these races.

Our dirt track sponsorship of Schrader Racing continues to grow each year, said Bishop. Kenny has a great time interacting with our members and customers at the track and his enthusiasm is contagious. Our guests really enjoy spending time with him and cheering him on as he competes in the Federated car.

SHORT TRACK AUTO RACING. COM

SHORT TRACK AUTO RACING. COM

It is time for the short track racing community to have a serious and thoughtful discussion about what we are doing and what we need to do to improve our racing. That is my goal. Please understand that I am a rookie at writing. I am going to say some things that some people won t like, but I am not trying to offend anyone. My purpose is to stimulate a discussion. The more ideas put forth,the better the odds that we, as a group, can identify what needs to be done. At present there are a number of conversations going on about this subject and that is a good start, however these discussions tend to be isolated in that fans talk about what fans want, racers talk about what racers want, etc. I think what is needed is fans, racers, and promoters all included in the same discussion. We are all in this together, we all want better racing, and we all know that the current situation is not working.

I am sure the first question you will have is why does this guy think he is qualified to say these things? Good question. Over the last 50 years I have been a driver, owner, owner/driver, crew member, and spectator. I have also been involved on the promotion side of racing. I have built racing engines, racing parts, and complete race cars and motorcycles. I have been in drag racing, off road racing, short track racing, and motocross. You can put whatever value you want on that.

Short track racing in Southern California is what I want to discuss. My comments are aimed at dirt track racing, but some of this discussion applies to asphalt tracks as well. Currently short track racing has a shortage of race cars and a shortage of fans. There is no shortage of opinions about what caused this. Let s see if we can sort through all these ideas and opinions and come up with the fixes we need.

I have set this up as 2 pages. The first page is what I believe are some of the problems causing a decline in short track racing. This isn t all the problems and I plan on adding to this list. The items are numbered. The second page is a list of possible fixes for the problems (also numbered). You can comment on the problems and/or fixes in general or if you want to comment on a specific item you can reference that items number. Please keep it clean and on topic. This is important for the future of short track racing.

Featured Listing 1969 Porsche 911 E Coupe

1969 Porsche 911 E Coupe

  • Matching-numbers with Northern California ownership history
  • Rust-free, restored example with renewed components from marque specialists
  • Striking original color combination and desirable specification
  • R-Gruppe ownership
  • Offered at $95,000 USD

Porsche has applied the exercise of evolution to its sports cars for as long as they ve existed. From the beginning their automobiles have appreciated incremental improvements with every new variant. Their 911 range provides one of the greatest examples of this pattern, and by the 1969 model year their rear-engined platform was receiving its first of many major generational improvements.

Criticized for its rear-engined handling characteristics, an effort was made to help alleviate some of its tail-happy tendencies. Some of the improvements included, among other things, lengthening the wheelbase by 2.4 inches and helping balance the tail-heavy weight distribution by placing an additional battery up front.

The 1969 Porsche 911 E offered for sale here is a brightly colored variety of one of these important 911s. This car comes from a Sports Car Digest reader and official member of the famous hot rod 911 community, R-Gruppe. Unlike many of the hot rod 911s you now see, though, this 911 retains many of its crucial, original details like engine, transaxle and bodywork. Continue reading

Honda. The name is attached to such a wide variety of products that it s really easier to ask what aren’t they associated with, than what they are. As a powerhouse in the motorcycle and power equipment world, they happen to be more than just a player in the aviation and marine industry. Oh yeah, and you might recognize a few cars they’ve made, too.

The “Genesis” for Honda automobiles was its T360, a tiny truck built only for their home market of Japan. Later that same year in 1963, the public would have the chance to get their hands on Honda’s first production car, the exciting and high revving S500 roadster. With 4-wheel independent suspension, four carburetors, a chain-driven driveline and a 9,500 rpm rev limit, the S500 was a lot like nothing.

Honda’s first sports car was eventually offered with larger displacement in coupe and roadster form, and represents some of the innovative thinking from Soichiro Honda. The direction that Mr. Honda was interested in taking after this point involved air-cooled power plants, as he would later display with their air-cooled, RA302 Formula 1 car in 1968. With the use of air/oil-cooled engines already popular with European automakers at the time, it seemed like a logical move simple engineering using fewer parts, smaller packaging and an emphasis on weight savings.

The first and only mass-produced cars to benefit from Soichiro Honda’s air-cooled philosophy was the new range of “Kei” cars. Designed to fit within the home-market tax legislation, the initial N360 model fit neatly within required 360 cubic centimeters of engine displacement and did not exceed the maximum length of ten feet. To call the N360 a success would be a major understatement, as it would go onto become the best-selling Kei car of Japan, and would enjoy success abroad, with a N600 model produced to satisfy a market the demanded higher top speeds. While not the commercial success that the later Civic was, the N600 represents Honda s humble beginnings in what is now their biggest market. Continue reading

A Big “Thank You” to April1 for all the work he did and I benefited!

Exactly one week ago today, I PM April1 asking about cable and software for coding. On Monday, he shipped the package via USPS Priority Mail and I got it on Wednesday.

The package was professionally done, with labels on the flash drive and cable. Very nice!!

I followed this thread and others about coding, and finally decided that it was time, but links to the software was no where to be found. Fortunately April1 was the one-stop-shop for all my coding needs.

Last Sunday after April1 confirmed he had everything I need, I started preparing my Windows XP laptop computer and read up on the instructions.

Wednesday night I copied Apirl1’s flash drive onto my hard drive, installed the software, studied the instructions, made some notes to get ready for Thursday night’s connection to my 2013 X3.

Thursday night came, I was careful to disable anti-virus software and Windows firewall, and turned off my laptop’s WiFi and Bluetooth. I also made sure I turned of all lights (automatic headlights, daylight running lights, and dome lights) in the car to conserve power. I followed the instructions to connect to my car. I was able to read the CAF file from my car and did a backup.

I had originally planned on doing just that on Thursday night. However, the process was so easy that I went on to code.

I successfully:

  1. disabled iDrive legal disclaimer during iDrive startup
  2. disbaled camera legal disclaimer
  3. added pressure and temperature readings to the TPMS screen
  4. enabled DVD in motion

I tried but wasn’t able to enable turn signal on HUD.

April1’s cable and software bundle, detailed instructions and screen shots in the “E-Sys – Getting Started Coding” PDF files paved the way to my quick success.

I greatly appreciate the contribution of all who went before me and so generously shared their knowledge!
