If you're going to be racing your car, you're going to need a helmet first. Whether you've got $200 or $2,000, you can get one of these lids that's not only good looking, but also approved by the authorities.

10.) Impact Nitro

When you're sitting in a dragster full of nitromethane and methanol, you better have some extra protection against fire. This would be it.

9.) G-force Pro Phenom

This open helmet is for beginners, and while it might not look like much, what makes it cool is that it's SNELL SA2010 rated and costs $200. Good value right there.

Buy it here.
