Stilo Helmets has had a great year with many of the top NASCAR drivers making switch to Stilo this season. Drivers in the Sprint Cup Series have gone to victory lane 10 times this season. The lightweight, noise reducing earmuff and superior quality are just some of the reasons you are seeing more and more Stilo helmets at the track. Kyle Busch, Joey Logano, Mark Martin and Carl Edwards are all running the ST4W GT Carbon. Matt Kenseth and Dale Earnhardt Jr. have made the St4F Naked Carbon helmet their top choice. Denny Hamlin has made the move to the Stilo St4W Zero the lightest weight helmet currently offered meeting the FIA 8860-2010 standard. Denny made the switch to the Zero helmet at the start of the NASCAR Chase and in his first race with it went to victory lane at New Hampshire.
Stilo Helmets will be at the PRI trade show in Orlando FL you can stop by and see us at booth 995 behind the Schroth Racing booth. Come check out all Stilo has to offer and get fitted for a helmet while you wait.

It was another weekend for the record books at Indy. The GRAND-AM and NASCAR Nationwide teams got to roll through the hallowed gates for the first time. On Saturday Brad Keselowski cruised to victory with Penske teammate Sam Hornish Jr finishing second giving Roger Penske his 100th NASCAR win.
In the Nationwide race the top five finishers all had Schroth Racing belts. On Sunday it was Jimmie Johnson who got to kiss the bricks for the fourth time. Jimmie dominated the race and finished 4.758 second ahead of runner-up Kyle Busch scoring his 58th career win. Jimmie Johnson winning the race was a big story but so was the 4th place finish by his teammate Dale Earnhardt Jr. who took over the Points lead for the first time since 2004.
They work the same way the other QuickFit Harnesses work, which is to say they are extremely easy to install and use. They attach to factory mounting locations and require only a couple tabs be installed on outboard locations. Once the initial installation is completed, you’re free to put them in and take them out as simply as you would buckle and unbuckle any normal seatbelt buckle.
Remember, the difference between QuickFit and QuickFit Pro is that the QuickFit Pro is designed to be used with a HANS device and has a central Cam Lock instead of a more conventional buckle. Read more below about each option:
Our first container of Cobra Seats has arrived! We have a full selection of all models of FIA 2012 racing shells with the new Pro-Fit™ system. Pro-Fit™ provides for different thickness of back, butt, and thigh support cushions to optimize the fit of the seat. Drivers sharing a car can use different inserts to improve the fit rather than using loose pieces of foam or other less desirable material.
Our new Misano, Daytona, and Monaco seats now have integrated mounts for a 6-point sub-strap built into the bottom of the seat. This make it the perfect replacement seat for your Porsche or Corvette that does double duty for street and track days. This is a first in the industry and designed specifically for the US market demands.
Joey, in his #20 Home Depot Toyota, battled with his mentor Mark Martin for the last few laps and at the end nudged Mark out of the way for the pass that led him to victory. It was a well earned win and his second in the Cup series. His first win was back in 2009 at a rain shortened event at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Joey has been doing much better this year with a few wins in Nationwide and good finishes in Cup. This win will get him closer to a shot to make the Chase for the first time in his career. We wish you luck Joey!
Justin Wilson took the checkered flag after starting only 17th in the field. With two laps leader Graham Rahal slide wide on turn 4 and contacted the wall – it was just enough for Justin to pull past him on the back straight. Justin held the lead for the last 1.5 laps and Graham managed to hold on to his cobbled car to finish a frustrating second. This was justins as he went a bit too wide and contacted the wall in turn 4but in the end a error causing a crash by Graham Rahal in the 4th turn with two laps left opened the door to Justin. This was his first win on an oval and his first win since Watkins Glen in 2009. Justin uses a SCHROTH Formula belt with 2″ laps and double shoulder belts.
Big Congratulations to Joey Logano in the #20 Home Depot Toyota for his hard fought win on the new pavement at Pocono. Joey battled with his mentor Mark Martin for the last few laps at the end nudged Mark out of the way for the pass. It was a well earned win and his second in the Cup series. His first win was back in 2009 at a rain shortened event at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
Joey has been using the Stilo ST4W Carbon helmet outfitted with the top air system for all of this season. Stilo now has eight Sprint Cup Drivers using Stilo including Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin, Carl Edwards, Matt Kenseth, Mark Martin, David Gilliland, and Bobby LaBonte. The combination of the unique top air system that delivers fresh cool air to both the top of the head and the face and the integrated noise reduction ear muffs has been a big benefit to the drivers. Kyle says he thinks “the ear muffs cut down the noise by maybe 30% – and that means less of a headache at the end of the race.”
