The Face-Shield Project Part 2-NHRA Face Shields

By David G. Firestone

While helmets have been around since the beginning of auto racing, full face helmets are a relatively new phenomena, having only come around since the late 1960’s. With the advent of full-face helmets came the visor. Visors or face-shields, are clear pieces of plexiglass that cover the open area of the helmet. In addition to keeping wind and rain out of a driver’s eyes in open cockpits, they also shield the driver’s face from fire, and can be tinted for racing in sunlight. Each form of auto racing has their own quirks when it comes to face-shields. Face-shields are designed to snap closed, and they all feature holes for the connection to the helmet, holes to keep the visor closed, and handles to help open the visor. This week we will look at NHRA face shields.

Drivers in the professional categories of the NHRA have two choices of face-shield. There is the traditional face-shield that is similar to NASCAR or IndyCar, and then there is the style that looks more like sunglasses. This was popularized by the Simpson Bandit. Many drivers prefer the Bandit face shield. The Pedregon brothers are an example of this, with a couple of race-worn examples.

The first is a Simpson Bandit face shield, with PEDREGON on the visor stripe area, and it has been signed by Cruz and Tony Pedregon. It shows decent use. The second Pedregon face-shield is an unbranded Bandit-style visor, which shows decent use. It has been signed by Cruz Pedregon, and he inscribed “2X FC CHAMP.” This next example shows a helmet phenomena that is unique to drag racing. Many drivers like to use what Jack Beckman referred to as the “Clydesdale Effect.” It should be noted that in 2015 I interviewed Beckman. I asked him about the Clydesdale Effect, and he said that he didn’t use it, but he didn’t rule it out. He has since starting using the Clydesdale Effect. Drivers like parts of their visors blacked out, so they can only focus on the track. This TJ Zizzo tinted example shows how some drivers use the Clydesdale Effect.

Next week, the face-shield discussion continues with IndyCar face shields.

Paint Scheme Grades-August 8, 2020

By David G. Firestone

Quin Houff #00 Creek Enterprises Inc. Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as last year, same B grade.

Brad Keselowski #2 Snap On Ford Mustang-I think the designs here are pointless, the red needs to go. With the red designs gone, this gets an A, but with the red designs, this gets a B+

Austin Dillon #3 Dow Patriotic Chevy Camaro-I think the wave motif is a bit over designed. Red should also replace blue as the primary color. Other than that, this gets a B.

Austin Dillon #3 RigUp/Roland Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

Austin Dillon #3 Freightliner Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as last year, same C grade.

Kevin Harvick #4 Busch Head for the Mountains Ford Mustang-I like the motif here. It looks great, and isn’t over done. This gets an A.

Kevin Harvick #4 Busch Light Patriotic Ford Mustang-I think this car is over designed. I especially hate the fireworks. The color is good, and the rear looks good, so I’ll give it a C.

Kevin Harvick #4 Busch Light Apple Ford Mustang-Red is a great color, and the apple orchard motif looks great. I can’t give this less than an A so I won’t.

Ryan Newman #6 Progressive Insurance Ford Mustang-This is a great look. The shades of blue look good, and I like the smooth design. A

Ryan Newman #6 Oscar Mayer Patriotic Ford Mustang-An amazing front half with an awful rear half earns a C grade.

Ryan Newman #6 Acronis Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same B grade.

Ryan Newman #6 Guaranteed Rate Ford Mustang-I don’t like this car, but I don’t hate it. I think it’s just a C grade car.

Aric Almirola #10 Smithfield Patriotic Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same D grade.

Ryan Blaney #12 Menard’s/Maytag Ford Mustang-The Menard’s template works well with red, and this scheme gets an A.

Clint Bowyer #14 CSU One Cure Ford Mustang-The new design is a downgrade from last year. This is a case where the scheme would get a higher grade if it had a different color scheme. Still, it’s not horrible, so it gets a B.

Clint Bowyer #14 Haas CNC Ford Mustang-This is over designed, the red stripes are far too over designed, and the white design is awful. This gets an F.

Chris Buescher #17 Sunny D Patriotic Ford Mustang-This might be one of the worst schemes of 2020. It’s horribly over designed, and the twisted flag motif is awful. F

Ryan Preece #37 Kleenex Chevy Camaro-A good color scheme and a smooth design scheme are all that’s needed to get an A grade.

Ryan Preece #37 Louisiana Hot Sauce Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as last year, same B+ grade.

Cole Custer #41 Autodesk Fusion 360 Ford Mustang-Great color scheme plus horrible design scheme equals a C grade.

Darrell Wallace Jr. #43 World Wide Technology Chevy Camaro-The starburst motif isn’t over done, and the shade of blue works perfectly. All of this is getting an A grade.

Garrett Smithley #53 Rich Mar Florist Chevy Camaro-I hate the black and pink here. It just doesn’t work. This scheme would work with other colors. I will give this a C.

Christopher Bell #95 Toyota Toyota Camry-The scheme is far too over designed, and the pointless black box makes it worse. I can’t give this anything less than a D.

The Face-Shield Project Part 1-NASCAR Face Shields

By David G. Firestone

While helmets have been around since the beginning of auto racing, full face helmets are a relatively new phenomena, having only come around since the late 1960’s. With the advent of full-face helmets came the visor. Visors or face-shields, are clear pieces of plexiglass that cover the open area of the helmet. In addition to keeping wind and rain out of a driver’s eyes in open cockpits, they also shield the driver’s face from fire, and can be tinted for racing in sunlight. Each form of auto racing has their own quirks when it comes to face-shields. Face-shields are designed to snap closed, and they all feature holes for the connection to the helmet, holes to keep the visor closed, and handles to help open the visor. This week we will look at NASCAR face shields.

NASCAR face-shields are made for cars with enclosed cockpits. They typically come in clear, or have some kind of tint. For day to night races, the face-shield can have a tinted tear-off that can be removed when it gets dark. Sponsors will also place their logos on the shield on the area that is over the edge of the helmet, as evidenced by this Jeff Burton tinted Arai visor from his RCR days. The face-shield is in decent condition. This clear Impact face-shield is from JR Fitzpatrick, during his NASCAR days. It is in decent condition, has a manufacture date of 01/2007, and has been signed by Fitzpatrick. Next week, the face-shield discussion continues with NHRA face shields.

How I Spent My 2020 Vacation

Just a brief post this week, and a day late. Well, another summer vacation come and gone again. This year was much different, as most of the things I wanted to do were canceled due to COVID-19. Since there was racing, I did get to enjoy it. I also put a lot of work into YouTube videos. I did two box breaks, I can’t count how many sampling videos, and even produced my new mini series. Those will come out in due time.

When it comes to The Driver Suit Blog itself, I have had to make a series of hard decisions. I’ve tried to reverse course, but I now have to accept that The Driver Suit Blog can’t continue in its current form after 2020. I simply do not have the time and resources to keep going. I will still work on The Driver Suit Blog, though I will do a lot more revisited articles, and cut back on Friday Features. This was a heavy blow, as I really love The Driver Suit Blog, but in the end, I have to make the right decision.

Next Week, The Face-Shield Project begins.

What Does A Playbook Have Inside?

By David G. Firestone

Editor’s Note: I am on Vacation until August, so I have prepared some Friday Features in advance.

Regular readers will know that I am an NFL fan. I collect NFL stuff in addition to NASCAR stuff. I have several toss coins, an endzone pylon, and some turf. I’ve had jerseys and helmets over the years as well. I recently found something that I just had to purchase.

The world of football was a much different place in 1964. There were two leagues, the NFL and the AFL. The first Super Bowl between the two wouldn’t take place until 1967. In 1964, the AFL consisted of a total of 8 teams in two divisions. The Eastern Division was made up of The Boston Patriots, The Buffalo Bills, The Houston Oilers, and The New York Jets. The Western Division had The Denver Broncos, The Kansas City Chiefs, The Oakland Raiders, and the San Diego Chargers. The 1964 AFL Championship took place at the War Memorial Stadium in Buffalo, New York. The game saw the Buffalo Bills beat the San Diego Chargers 20-7.

The 1964 Oakland Raiders were not a great team. They went 5-7-2 over 14 games. They had a couple of all-stars but really didn’t do much. These are a set of pages from the playbook of former wide receiver Bill Miller. They are in good condition, and don’t show any wear.

Next week, how I spend my summer vacation.
