Default Helmet SNELL Rating

I have a brand new helmet I purchased a long time ago that has a 2000 SNELL year. Is there any place to send it out to get recertified? Hate to have to buy another one. I took 8 years off from racing and wanting to get back into it but my track requires a 2005 or newer.

I don't believe the Snell foundation recerts at all. Their idea is the foam breaks down over time from ozone, & sweat.

Well if it is good until 2012 I'm baffled as to why my track requires me to have a 2005 or newer??? I'm also racing in a 7.50 index class 1/8 mile with a street car no cage.

are they an NHRA or IHRA track if not that is probably the reason. if so here is a link my local track provided to the info you can forward to them. also tracks can make there own rules. then again look at the manufactring date it could of been manufactured more that 12 years ago

No re-certs on a Helmet......Besides......Your head is worth protecting no matter if you run 11's or 5's........
BUY NEW!!!!!
The mind is a terrible thing to waste.....
Just sayin'

Seriously, why skimp when it comes to your head?

You can get a quality full-face Snell SA2005 helmet for as little as $130. That's really not that bad - even to a broke-ass like me.
