Shirley Muldowney Donates Helmets to Garlits Museum

NHRA Top Fuel legend Shirley Muldowney's racing helmets will be donating over three dozen helmets to the Don Garlits Museum of Drag Racing for permanent display.
 
“It’s every helmet I even wore for an entire season,” she said. I’ve had a few one-offs or special helmets I’ve made and worn once or twice that are not included, but the rest are the real deal.”
 
“They’ve been in my garage for years because I had no room to display them all, and even though I’ve had many offers from people to buy one or two over the years and requests from sponsors, I didn’t want to break up the set,” she explained. “I knew that once I was gone, they might get sold off that way, and that’s not what I want for them, and they’re going to the best place they could be.”
