Revival of McHAL HELMETS
Before Bell, in 1955, and Simpson, in 1974, began making helmets, Hal Minyard and his friend Johnny McMurray made history in 1952 when they invented the McHal helmet.
In those days, most of the fatal injuries in motor racing were temple- and basilar skull-related. "The Hats" the drivers wore were made of plastic and looked like the bowl used to give Prince Valiant haircuts.
"I wanted to make one just for myself, something that would come down around the side of the head and low across the back of the head. When I wore it for the first time at a midget race at Phoenix, everyone wanted one.
"It was the first full coverage helmet."
