Design Dane's Helmet

National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) has partnered with Broaster Chicken, YamaLube Westby Racing and Arai Helmets to bring this unique opportunity to design the paint scheme for Dane Westby's Arai Corsair-V helmet.  The winning submitted design will be painted on the helmet and worn by Dane at the New Jersey Motorsports Park, AMA Pro Race in September.

The helmet will then be auctioned, with the proceeds going to NDSS to further promote its mission of being the national advocate for the value, acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome. 

Until July 31st, people can submit their helmet design entries to the National Down Syndrome Society for a chance to have their design on the helmet. Dane will wear the helmet in the second to last race of the season and then the helmet will be auctioned off with the funds raised going to support NDSS.

The contest is open to anyone, but we ask for one entry per household. By submitting, you are giving your consent to use the drawing on the helmet.
