Little Guy November Continues With a Pair of Gloves

By David G. Firestone

Little Guy November starts in earnest. Hailing from Philo, IL, the self-proclaimed center of the universe, Kyle Schuett has raced the sprint car scene since at least 2005. He has numerous race wins and championships. He races in the southern Illinois area.

Even the little guys need to upgrade equipment, and Schuett is no exception. Suits, helmets, shoes, and gloves all need to be replaced. This SFI 3.3/5 rated K1 gloves is proof of this. The gloves show decent use, and have been autographed on the wrists. The right gloves features wear on the palm. There are certification tags present, and Kyle has signed the wrist. The left gloves features wear on the palm. There are certification tags present, and Kyle has signed the wrist. Admittedly, this was a short column this week, so I present…

I'm just a normal guy who collects race-worn driver suits, helmets, sheet metal, and other race-worn items. I will use this blog to help collectors, and race fans alike understand the various aspects of driver suits and helmets, and commentate on paint schemes.
